Trail gets somewhat hard to follow the higher you climb. Maybe someone should take a machete up there? Like stated before... view gets better the higher you climb.

First of all, it's spelled NEEDLEROCK...not like it is above. This is a nice hike up, and very un-crowded. The higher you go on the base of Needlerock, the more beautiful the West Elk Mountains become. We saw white, furry mountain goats up on the rock itself!
