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.

Disappointed in the upkeep tons of poop bags lined the trail but I love this hike the beginning is super easy and the last bit is pretty hard but the view at the top is worth it :)

Definitely a cardio workout and a thigh burner but the 360 degree view at the top is worth it! Doing a group hike here at 10am May 21 (2017) if anyone would like to join us! www.justhiketherockies.com :)

Beautiful view at the top. Tough toward the end (straight up!) but worth it. My dog had the best time. Yak trax needed-went late March.

Beautiful day, great hike. Enjoyed having the opportunity to have our dog come along as there are few trails that allow mans best friend. We are not residents to the area and given the snow coverage as we got closer to the top the app was very helpful in tracking correctly.

3-19-17 Many reports from those coming down of postholing in deep snow and difficulties finding the trail on the second mile to the summit so we turned around after a mile. Don't be deceived by the lack of snow at the trail head. Take your yak-traks.

Went this morning and it was gorgeous. We were the first and only ones on the trail for most of our hike. I would recommend spikes for most of the hike. It's very icy/snow-packed in sections.

Nice views at the top, but a difficult hike in snow shoes - if you like to climb you'll like this trail (trail is tough to follow in the snow, after a certain point).
