This is a fun trail, switchback after switchback and one really steep rocky climb. The views were outstanding and the trail was moderate to hard at parts. Lots of fun

Made it up 3.4 miles on 7/14/19. At this point snow made trail impassable in Jeep Rubicon without taking to much risk. Backed down a few hundred feet and parked and then hiked to the top with family and dogs. Saw several mountain goats. Snow still deep in spots. Amazing views in all directions.

Trail was open for about 2.5 miles then snow made it impassable. Airing down made all the difference.

We thoroughly enjoyed our snowshoe hike along the mining road, but we only went as far as tree line due to weather coming in. We were the only ones on snowshoes, all other tracks were from skis and boards, winding off the trail through the woods. Beautiful views. Protected from the wind while below tree line. Parking was a bit difficult as the trail head is off a residential street. Moderate difficulty is accurate. Slow steady uphill climb.

Hiked Santa Fe Peak. Rated it as moderate as it's a pretty relentless upward path along an old mining road. You pass some long-abandoned mining shed, chutes and other structures along the way. The wildflowers were beautiful, as were the views from the saddles and the summit - especially to views of Torrey's and Gray's. Very light traffic - saw just a handful of other hikers.
