This is a wonderful paved trail across the open alpine tundra. It is a little steep at first, before quickly leveling out somewhat (climbing about 160 feet in elevation to a maximum height of roughly 12,300 feet...not much in terms of length or elevation gain, but the altitude makes its presence known). Be sure to stop for the many informative interpretive markers, and take the small side trail to see the unique Mushroom Rocks with a fantastic view on the far side across the TRR to Forest Canyon and Longs Peak in the distance (weather permitting). At the end of the trail, look for the plaque in the rocks dedicated to Roger Toll, an early RMNP superintendent. There is also a large geographical marker on top of the rocks. During our visit in late July, we saw several marmots and pikas along the trail, and bighorn sheep near the base of the trail at Rock Cut.

It was a great little hike. We enjoyed the drive up past 12,000 ft!

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.
