Quick hike, but steep. Beautiful to enjoy at sunset (but be prepared for the dark walk down).

Awesome trail with rewarding views at the end. Went on a Friday about mid-day and there were very few people using the trail.

Loved it. The aspens and pines trees and wildflowers were great. And the peak at the end was a good destination with spectacular views

Did a part of this hike on the weekend. The trailhead name is actually Cougar Trail when it splits. Great views of the mountains half way up. Highly recommended.

Steady, winding climb through pine and aspen forest. Occasional views over Minturn from side trails. Met only a couple of people on the way.

Beautiful hike. Mossy Forrest shaded most of the way. Three view spots. About 1 hr 40 min round trip.

Pretty brisk 4 mile hike that's fairly steep in one section. Views are amazing and it's just down the street from our townhouse rental. Not sure how some local mtn bikers rode up this trail... lungs and thighs of steel apparently :)
