Overall, very pleasant and not too strenuous hike.

It was short, paved, scenic with the slightest bit of elevation gain and the occasional wildlife along the trail. The temperature sat around 45 F in mid-June, but winds make it feel a bit colder at this altitude. There's a rock at the end that you can climb up to get even more views (and higher winds).

Short and easy paved trail. Biggest challenge is the elevation and temperature. Saw several people struggling for breath. Saw elk only 100' off the path, many marmots. Spectacular views. It was definitely heavily trafficked, but many seemed to give up before reaching the end and family and I had it all to ourselves for good 15 minutes.

The apex of TRR is at Rock Cut. At the end of June in 2004, the temperature was 35 degrees with a steady breeze. Thunderstorms approached and we hurried up the paved trail from the parking lot (1 mi. RT) to some huge boulders at the top. The trail flattens out after an initial climb. The Tundra World Nature Trail / Tundra Communities Trail features interpretive markers with interesting tundra plant and animal facts along the way. If not acclimated, you can feel the 12,110 feet elevation impact - the hike is worth every gasp - the alpine tundra is harsh, where winds can reach 150 mph, winter blizzards are frequent, and temperatures in midsummer frequently drop below freezing. We could see great views of the glacially carved peaks along the Continental Divide. At the top as a storm drew nearer we didn’t want to become lightning rods, so high-tailed it down. Just as we reached the parking lot and after viewing the lone alpine lake across the cavernous divide, the sky grew very dark and started hailing as we got in the car (really good timing). Great short hike with expansive views. Highly recommended.

Such a beautiful view. You feel like you're on top of the world. Easy trail but I would say the altitude slightly bothered me. My favorite part was the marmots! They are everywhere basking in the sun on the rocks- I love them, they are SO cute!

Loved the views. Super easy short hike. Lots of people. Saw a marmot hanging out on a rock. Great sculpture at the top that tells you the elevation and location of other mountains.

Low impact. Great views. The altitude gets to you, but the paved trail makes it easy.
