First 8 miles are quite laid back. The next 5 to get up to King’s peak were quite challenging with all the rocks and almost no real trail. Plenty of places to camp between dollar lake and the gunsight pass. Would recommend doing a 3 day trip (we did a 2 day trip) to make it more enjoyable.

We climbed at the wrong time - definitely wait until July if you’re thinking about going up. We got caught in a snow storm. It’s an absolutely beautiful trail when the weather is good, but it’s not very well marked and there are several trails off the main, without signs. Be careful to stay on the right track.

First of all, we did not reach the summit, due to both elevation and bad weather, though some may choose to push through both of these. We camped mostly protected just below Gunsight Pass for a shorter morning ascent. Were we to do it again, I would make it an easy two night, with both nights at Dollar Lake, or just do King's as a sidetrip off of a Highline Trail traverse.

Beautiful trail. Pretty crowded on Labor Day weekend. Bugs not too bad... but I’d still bring some spray.

Went up with a group of boys. We had some headaches and vomiting but, almost everyone in our group made it to the summit.

Great place to set up Base camp. Really enjoyed staying here. Beautiful area. Beware there are a lot of Moose here.
