Mount Rosa is one of the most incredible hikes I have been on - not every mountain has a 360* view at the summit. Very lightly trafficked - we didn't see a single other person on the trail, and is a very manageable distance when starting from Frosty's Park (although we had to hike a mile or so to the trailhead). Only downside is that it's hard to get to if you're not starting at North Cheyenne Canyon Park - Old Stage isn't so bad but you shouldn't drive too far on FR 379 to get to the trailhead unless you have a high clearance vehicle. Once at Frosty's park, the trail is the one furthest to the right (622 I believe). A while in, you'll get to a split in the trail; we made the mistake of continuing instead of turning right, so make sure you do turn and continue to gain elevation.
