The views are incredible, and you don't have to do the entire trail to enjoy them, I started at the Ruby Anthracite trailhead and then turned back at the creek. The trail gets VERY steep as you go down into the canyon to reach the creek. I just went in mid-September and the aspens were a phenomenal bright yellow. The other time I went was August and there were lots of beautiful wildflowers. Definitely recommend and will be going again in spring!
