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!!

Wonderful hike, starts with a gradual descent then probably around 1100 ft gain after that to top. Full of wildflowers and valley views. The trail has a lot of exposed tree roots, can get muddy and slippery with rain. When nearing the top, heading right takes you to some cool rock formations. Beware the hungry chipmunks!
