I started at the Winfield campground because my 2wd car did not have enough clearance to make it to the actual TH. It took 5.7 miles for me to reach the summit from this starting point at the campground. Simple 14er with a little mixture of everything; creek, forest, high alpine meadow, dirt scramble, boulder field, and lots of critters. Overall the trail is very easy to follow and is a crowded one.

This was a beautiful hike from start to finish. However it was arduous and the path at some points was difficult to find. Took me and my buddy a little longer than usual because his shoes got wet so we had to dry those out. Bring waterproof shoes and prepare for some steep parts. Also, my leveled-out F-150 was able to make the drive all the way to the trailhead, but it took some skill to get it up there.
