Nice hike. Started around 7:30 and didn't see a ton of people until the end. As others have noted, this trail is 9 miles end to end, not out-and-back as the description says. Popular with mountain bikers. No exciting views or peaks but nice. Not too strenuous despite its "hard" rating.

This trail is beautiful and well marked. Howevet it is 9 miles out and 9 miles back. What began as a 9 mile hike turned into a 12 mile hike before my hiking buddy and I realized what was happening. To be fair this was marked accurately on the park map. I was sore but I was beautiful.

Moderate out-n-back day hike. Great views of the mountain ranges, wildlife and the North Fork of the South Platte River. Trail is easy to follow and multiple signs keep you confident you're on the right track.
