Beautiful trail, sad since the fire but overall still gorgeous. Steep at times but not a huge deal. Great view at the top. Took us 2 hours and 30 minutes roughly.

Sadly, most of Crow Peak was badly damaged by forest fire from a lightening strike this summer. However, this does not diminish what a terrific hike this is. Great workout and more than worth the effort when you get to the amazing South Dakota & Wyoming vistas at the top.

Awesome hike. We did this in mid June and it was beautiful. There's a mix of very steep to flat surfaces along the trail. The last leg is the hardest and basically straight up. My fitbit said i had climbed 237 floors by the end of the hike and it took us about 4 hours to complete. We do some hiking but I wouldn't call us experienced and we made it through this hike. The views at the top are worth every bit of discomfort on the way up. Every time your turn around the view and landscape has changed.

Nice mix of steeper sections all the way to flats as you climb. The last push is the steepest. Very cool hike, and we'll worth it.
