Such a nice drive to trail head coming from red cliff. Definitely more solitude on the drive than the hike. Pretty crowded on a Friday at noon. Beautiful views/payoff- not much work 4 experienced hiker.

Beautiful terrain, not too crowded, but I would definitely rate this hike moderate rather than easy. Still appropriate for families and furry friends!

Great short trail. Be aware if you're not acclimated to the elevation yet as this trail starts at 11,000 feet.

Breathtaking views all of the way to the top but even more unbelievable at the top. Trail leans more to moderate but well worth it!!
