Started at 10:15a and arrived on grizzly summit at 12:30ish and that was with some decent stops for photos & marmot peeping. It's not that fast getting back because you have the hump in between grizzly & Cupid and the resulting elevation gain/loss will wear on ya! Start earlier though... we were watching some crazy weather coming in at the end! And the wind was pretty intense!

This was a great hike with awesome views. One of the best parts of it was how few people were there. I had the peak to myself for a while. The trail is pretty hard though with lots of false peaks. The final climb to Grizzly Peak was pretty intimidating but it was worth it once I got to the top.

14er views without the 14er crowd. Was thinking it wasn't that hard of a hike until the last stretch. A couple times you lose elavation and have to gain it again makes it strenuous. Only took 2 hours to get to the summit. Heard Torreys peak is another 3 miles with 1,000' more elevation loss and gain. No map or sign at the trailhead. Parking lot is across from a touristy continental divide pull off so parking fills up pretty quick. Once you get to the first set of rocks piled at the top turn right and follow a small trail.

This was a a tough tough tough hike. I would recommend hiking poles. Elevation was definitely a factor and had a really hard time breathing. Two routes you are able to take up; straight and one curves to the right. I would suggest one that goes to the right if it is not snow covered. The parking lot fills up quickly so get there early. I only made it to Cupids Peak and my boyfriend and our german shepherd made it the rest of the way to Grizzly Peak. Well marked trail. He said he had to climb some boulders at the end to Grizzly. Lightly traffic.

Well marked. We lost the trail at one point and scrambled around some boulders and picked it up easily again. Very windy at different points along the trail but pleasant on top. The steep parts are definitely steep. Used poles coming back.

Definitely a hard trail. I would consider this a class 2. Great views, fairly well marked.

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
