One of the better hikes I've been on within a short drive from Fort Collins. You essentially get to hike into RMNP from the backside, and I did not see a soul when I did it solo... only two very good sized bull moose that I watched feed for about 20 mins!! Was windy up above treeline, and it's a longer hike, so if you aren't a fast hiker, start early.
