Great hike. Less crowded than the 14 ers. At top of GriZzlY you can have lunch and watch the masses on Greys and Torrey's and remind yourself why you chose GriZzlY

rewarding hike! definitely a heart pumper and leg burner but worthy for the views :) made it to cupids peak and will be back to go all the waaaaay up to grizzly !!

Stunning and challenging hike. Just got back and my legs are fried. The beginning starts off steep and gets you right into it. After that it's a bit of up and down until you get to the base of Grizzly. Its quite intimidating from the bottom, but oh so rewarding if you make it up the steep ascent. A bit of loose gravel and a little bit if scrambling will be well worth it if you have any energy left by that point.

Not only are the views incredible on a bluebird day, but the ease of access to the trailhead, really fun Scrambles, and the workout provided makes this trail five stars. Do not let 5.4 miles fool you, this one made my thighs burn!

The entire route is above treeline, so beautiful views are a constant. The up and down both ways can get taxing. It feels like more elevation gain than it actually is. Great views of Grays and Torreys from Grizzly Peak D.

This is a great hike that starts above tree line and rides the ridge. Lost the trail a couple of times in the boulders but it wasn't hard to pick back up.

Great hike close to home we like to frequent. Love the ups and downs to this hike. Even after reaching the summit still a little bit of climbing to do on the way back to the trailhead. As mentioned usually pretty strong winds, and the whole hike is above tree line so plan accordingly.

Good winter hike needing minimal equipment. Snow stays light on the east side. There are almost alway high winds so pack accordingly.
