Excellent hike. Lots of trees on the trail so be prepared to limbo or jump over. Worth the view! Beautiful aspens the whole way up.

Great hike. Uphill pretty much the entire way. Still snow on the ground near the top in a few spots; made those parts of the hike a little muddy but other than that the trail is great and absolutely worth it once you get to the top.

Still snow packed from 1/3rd of the way in, until the very top. Suggest going earlier in the day so that the snow isn't slushy on your way down. Goretex shoes highly recommended.

great hike. i was a little confused at the beginning because there is no signage for Lionshead Rock Trail - start out on Game Creek Trail. I got started around 9 or 9:30 and was surprised that i didn't see ANYONE on the way up. i was a little paranoid about surprising wildlife so i felt a little silly singing most of the way up! some really nice views on the way up, but mostly in the trees. i was pleasantly surprised when i got to the top and got to go out on the big rocks and see the great views! if i'd been with someone else i would have really enjoyed hanging out on the rocks with a little picnic, but i was alone, so i enjoyed it about 15 minutes then headed back down. did pass about 3 groups of hikers on their way up when i was headed down.

Not sure we ever officially saw "lionshead rock," and it should be noted the trail is VERY difficult in snow. That said, it was beautiful!

Great views. Trail ends at the peak where the metal stake is. However the trail continues on but doesn't end till you get to vail. Very relaxing scenery

Game Creek trail along the creek and then take the right trail over the creek. Relentlessly uphill but no cliffs or rocks to scramble over (Mary). View at the top is fabulous though the drop is precipitous.
