A beautiful trail with stunning views that are well worth the back hike up! We saw the train twice down by the river - once from up above and then again when we reached the river. Steepest part is thru the aspen grove near the top of the trail. It was pretty sloppy with all the recent rain at the upper section of the trail, but that went away when we reached the switch backs. A great fall hike with lots of colors to see and hike through!

Great hike! Strenuous when you're not used to the altitude! I was huffing and puffing but I made it. Loose and rocky so have good boots.

We just did a little day hike. The views are beautiful with the wildflowers and waterfall. Not too difficult of a trail we carried my 1 year old in a carrier no problem. Just drink plenty of water if your not used to the elevation!
