I found this trail to be pretty easy. It is a good FS two-track that climbs consistently and steadily to the lookout. It gets a little steeper between miles 3-4. The views from the lookout are great. There are pockets of burned trees from the Pioneer fire, but very spotty. On July 2, there were many wildflowers blooming, and still some snow on the road near the top, but travel was not impeded.
