This is a great hike with a wonderful view at the top! You start out in the Forest but you come out to this rocky shale like terrain for the last 1/2 mile or so. Steep and Rocky. You need to watch your footing at times. It’s also recommended to be off the mountain top before any clouds or storms come in. The fire tower remodel has been fun to see.

Road up to the trailhead is pretty intense. Lots of high clearance and sharp rocks. View up top was real nice

Great trail, I did it 6/20/2020. No spikes needed, there was 4 steps worth of snow at one point near the top, but just fine. I parked where all the cars are near the big signage with maps etc. Then walked 3/4mile to turn right at the actual trailhead. Windy at the top, incredible view

Hiked this today. Short trail but all uphill. Great panoramic views at the top! Be sure to check the weather forecast. We were up top in gusty winds, which made it a little sketchy. But the hike was definitely worth the wind :)

We struggled to find the dirt road that lead to the trailhead and once we did, it was slow driving for probably 15 minutes. You definitely need a 4-wheel drive SUV, I had my Jeep Cherokee in low gear all the way. We parked at the larger parking lot and walked on the dirt road the rest of the way until we got to the trail, the road was pretty rough at that point. Snow-covered still in areas on the trail which slowed us down. A pretty hike with nice views but would have liked some warning about the difficulty getting to the trailhead.

Worth the trek up to the fire observation hut. Still snow on upper half but definitely doable without snowshoes.

This would have been a great trail but it was still snowed over in late May. Definitely bring your show shoes or cross country skies

Great hike! Headed up there midday and was definitely happy to have my all-wheel drive and snow tires on. There was no one on the trail and the snow was totally untouched!! Absolutely beautiful and serene. Definitely not the most difficult hike I've ever done and the views at the top were incredible. Such a cool adventure! Did it with the dog too who loved every second. Glad we were alone on the trail, made it all the better

Really great views and not to bad of a scramble for the last little bit to the top. There were multiple routes up the last part but it’s difficult to see the easier one until you are descending.

A must do hike. short trek 1.8m up. trail is really nice. have your map downloaded as it's difficult at times to know you're on the right path. last climb to the top a bit scary with heavy wind at times. fire tower great place to get out of the weather. loved the views. saw a tree blow down and found others on the path on the way back. 40+mph winds at the top if not more today.

Trail could use more signs as there are many side spurs to go down. If it wasn’t for the seasoned jeeper to get me down the loop, I would have been lost coming down as I didn’t have a Chance to download the trail map before I went. Very narrow towards the top! However beautiful views. Completed in a 2005 Toyota Tacoma with a king suspension! Love our suspension. I would definitely do this one again.

Excellent views at the top. Basically no one around. Gets pretty steep near the top, and there is a lot of loose rock that my mom (60) struggled with. Took about 2 hours and 15 minutes round trip with my mom in tow. Probably 90 minutes for someone in good shape.

Amazing views! I agree with all the other comments. Loose rock at the top is challenging especially on the way down but worth it! Lots of puppies being carried so may not be the hike for the young pups.

Not a super hard trail, just consistent uphill. Views from summit are amazing!

Started the hike ~ 1:30 and was happy to have a hat (lots of sun). Parked ~ 1.5 miles from the trailhead because the road was rutted and not safe for our car. Last 1/2 mile was loose rock and poles may have made it a little easier to climb. Beautiful views and the highlight was reaching the top (old fire tower).nice to see some wildflowers along the trail.

Another beautiful hike in Routt county! Views are incredible! No bugs and plenty of shade for a lot of the hike. I had a helicopter fly by showing off when I was at the top in the lookout! Another must hike! I would like to point out that the old Jeep road that you use to get up to the trail head is not a super easy road to navigate unless you have a Jeep or something similar. It’s a one way very rocky and full of huge potholes. I’m not say it’s impossible to get up there in a Sedan but I’m just saying don’t be surprised if you scrape the bottom of your car or leave with a dent or two.
