gorgeous views. I went when it was raining and it was so beautiful and peaceful. wondering if anyone knows of a trail that goes to the waterfalls that you can see at the end of the trail?

beautiful hike! Well worth the incline at the end. The trailhead calls it horse trail 250.

I'm out of shape and really enjoyed this trail. It ends with a beautiful view. I had to take quite a few breaks on the steep parts near the peak, but it wasn't too bad.

Only 4 stars because the trail was super dusty and there was not much shade.

I drove quite a ways to hike this today. However, the road was closed due to a fire. I'm sure it's amazing, just have try another time. Beware that Alpine loop is closed in both directions today (Hwy 92).

Beautiful view of the back side of Timp. Lots of wildflowers along the way. No one else on the trail. We went during the evening hours.

Amazing hike. It was 4 miles climbing 850 feet. It had nice intervals of flat meadow, hillside climb & descending. Our 8 year old did really well with a few brief rests & snacks. The destination is the top of a ridge line surrounded by amazing views. Well marked trail and doggie friendly.
