Steep rise front the start, and fair to say it's moderate. Beautiful views along the way, the divide had wonderful views.

Went 5 days ago and there was a lot of foot traffic. Seems very touristy now. $8 car fee, $3 walk in fee. The trail was well manicured, great view of the continental divide.

Great hike but 8 dollars for day pass to get into the state park. The continental divided outlook detour was very worth it!! Wish there was another epic view at the midpoint but enjoyed our hike and definitely thought it was accurate in moderate difficult rating. Uphill for the first half and downhill the second half.

Nice hike. Don’t have to return though! Mild-moderate in difficulty which allows you to enjoy the sights and the journey.

Great little hike- pretty busy on a Sunday morning but the views at the Continental Divide Lookout were great. We ended up going back down from the lookout instead of completing the loop. There were plenty of kids and dogs on this trail. We'll be back!
