Enjoyed the hike. Numerous elk sightings up close. The altitude affected us...took much longer than expected.

Outstanding! For a moderate trail, Ida mountain climb kicked my butt. I struggled staying on the trail coming off the top, in the rocks. Made it much more difficult for myself than it had to be. Views were awesome! Such serenity. Felt like I was on top of the world.

Spectacular!! Not officially a maintained trail, but well enough traveled for way finding. Follow the cairns in the scrambling section for a slightly easier climb. The first half mile or so is below tree line but once you clear that, it is a steady climb above tree line with endless views of the never summer range and 360 degree views of longs, the mummy range, gore range and the entirety of the park from the top. Definitely one of the best hikes in RMNP. Here's to trying to keep it a somewhat hidden gem!

A very great hike for anyone looking to see great views with less work. The hike took me about 5 hours to complete. It's a moderately long hike, but when you get to the summit you can see everything! Great view of Long's Peak and you can even see Grand Lake! Overall a fantastic hike!
