This is a great hike to the top of the tallest peak this side of RMNP and the Divide.  There are great views of the Park and Longs Peak from the trail. This route is best in Spring time, when you set out from the locked forest road gate.  From there, it's a nice 2.5 miles up to the summit.  There are some wide open views at the peak, but plenty of trees to obstruct a 360 view.  This is a great trail for the less experienced, pets and kids. Outstanding views of RMNP!
