Did this trail around noon yesterday. It was very steep, but there are places where it levels out for you to get a bit of a break from the incline. The views were beautiful.

Some good views of the 14ers to the south. Wide, relatively clear trail. We didn't run but could see this as a good jogging spot. Some snow up in the trees in late June.

More difficult than grand escape which is right next to it on the left but you'll get more tree coverage. Do grand escape to save time and it's easier to jog, better on knees if you have knee problems.
