HikingGreat!

Beautiful views from this trail along the continental divide, and overall lower gradients and shorter climbs were great. However the road to get the trail head is in horrible condition, and gets worse the closer to the start you get. I would only drive a vehicle with high ground clearance and tall tires to this hike. Therefore a 4 star rating.

The trail was fun. Not crowded today. I had an epic mountain bike fall which was enjoyable. Lots of fun outside steamboat.

This trail is easy to find and well maintained. We hiked about 2.5-3 miles of it in 50 minutes then turned around to head back to the parking lot. My only complaint is it’s narrow and the sides are sloped inward, like a narrow ditch, so our knees and hips were sore when we were done.

It was an amazing hike. It wasn't to hard. But it was hot that day. Our Britney pup had a blast. It wasn't to crowded first thing in the morning but by mid day there were quite a few people.

First to Review

I did the portion from Dumont Lake to Long Lake. More than enough after long time of not riding! Most people shuttle to Dumont Lake and then continue past Long Lake on Mountain View Trail and then down through the Bike Park to town. I would have preferred that option but alas did not have a shuttle. (No commercial shuttles are approved as of Aug '15.)
