Directions from Estes Park: Go south on Hwy 7 about 5.8 miles. Just before the 6 mile marker there is a small pull-off area by the trailhead sign. Be careful because parking space is limited and the pull-off sits just off busy Hwy 7.

Trail was lovely and the view is totally worth it! It's pretty easy to follow and like everyone said, the first half or so is pretty easy going but then that last half, especially the last 1/4 mile is a real burn if you haven't hiked in some time.

Beautiful views all the way up. Some areas are more than just moderate hiking. Great 360 view at the top. Definitely allot of incline.

Amazing trail but is pretty steep and difficult at the end because you have to scale some boulders,but man the view is absolutely amazing!! Well worth it!!

Easy going for the first mile and a half. Last half mile will get your heart rate up. Trail is hard to follow when you get to the summit, but we just scrambled up the rocks and the view was worth the climb. Our little dog made it to the top, but we had to carry him in a couple spots for the last part. Hardly saw anyone else until we were heading down around 10am.

Great hike!! Easy start then steady incline to the top! Lots of outlooks along the way. And 360 view at the top! So worth it! Beautiful. Not very busy trail and well marked! Dogs did great and everyone was super friendly

A beautiful little hike. Most of it I would rate easy, but there are some parts (kind of in the middle and towards the top) that are a little bit harder. The view is beautiful from the top, summit is kind of narrow

Great hike! Quite easy, compared to other hikes in the vicinity, but totally worth a quick morning or afternoon trip. Very nice views at the top, and large enough summit to accommodate several different groups at once, if you catch it at a crowded time. Mileage is closer to 3.5. Parking is pretty limited (along highway 7).

We do this trail as our first warm up of the year! The views are worth it!

beautiful all the way up! a hike closer to 'Hard' than 'Moderate'. we went with someone who wasn't experienced and she had a difficult time. its a very steep hike with lots of tall steps. The views at the top are worth it! 360° Views!
