This is an excellent little hike with great payoff. A few notes:
-there's plenty of parking at the Hoosier Pass summit, but if you're having trouble finding a spot, passenger cars can continue a tenth of a mile or so up the jeep road and park at one of the dispersed camping areas
-we completed this as a counterclockwise loop, which I would recommend. If you choose to do so, there's a steep trail directly to the right shortly after the Jeep road splits off to Crystal Lake. You'll see the single track up the hill. It's a steep incline at first, but becomes more manageable soon.
-returning via the Jeep road (continuing counterclockwise on the loop) is good on the knees because it's less of a grade
-there are plenty of options to continue the hike once you get to the top (some mine ruins, other trails, Crystal Lake, etc.)
Enjoy!

Fun little hike with my parents. Trail was well maintained jeep-type road on the way up, and single track on the way down. Be sure to go past the rock stacks to get to the single track just over the high point. Beautiful views of the surrounding peaks and the Dillon reservoir.

Great little hike. Started on the Jeep trail and returned via the summit to finish the loop. Downhill return very steep at times, especially the last 100 yards to the Jeep trail.
