Great hike! Good that the most challenging part of the hike is in the first mile and a half. The rest is Colorado forest and flowers at their best. My wife and I were treated to a Moose crossing our path, late in the afternoon, on the way down. I think he was startled by us and ran across, and down the path, ahead of us by about 100 feet - pretty close. It was a large (tall) buck, probably young as he was not bulked up.
