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.

Great views and it wore out my energetic puppy! Go early if it's going to be hot.

Great views from the top and a little hard to find the actual top! Pretty easy until last 1/3 mile then a bunch of steep steps and a little climbing at the top. Very fun! We actually got off track on the way up and went a good mile off course!

The view was Amazing ! 360 View of the Estes Park and Rocky Mountains.
Definitely Moderate, the end of the trail is not marked at all therefore it was hard to find a way up to the top of the rock. Worth all the Sweat 100%!

Loved this hike! Not terribly long but definitely moderate and above. There are some really steep stretches and a decent rock scramble to the top, but the views are well worth the climb.

The view from the top is breathtaking!! It's a great hike to the top, lots and lots of stairs and then some boulder scrambling to the top but it's so worth that full 360 view!

This was a nice route. Pretty tough in the final 1/3. The views were great at the top, though there were a bunch of flying ants up there.

We loved this trail. Brought our two dogs (german shepherd and small mix) and they both did great. Was a pretty good workout and we were sweating, but it was well worth the view at the top. A couple boulders to climb the last part which took some coordination with the dogs, but they managed. Would highly recommend this one.

Great hike with great views. Took the dog, too, and it wasn't too bad for him.
