Hiked this on 7/1/17. The views were spectacular and the wild flowers even better! I would have rated this as difficult but then again I'm used to hiking at 1,200 ft. Elevation. I'm an avid hiker, but 52 yrs old and about 30 lbs overweight. We saw a few others that were running it as this trail intersects with a few other trails. It took us four hours up and 2.5 down. We started at 7am and was in shade most of the way up. Coming down, we were mostly sun exposed and it got quite warm. A beautiful day!

Lots of green along the trail. Came across a couple of rattlesnakes. Other than that, beautiful hike.

It's a very rocky incline at first. It does level off but remains a steady incline. You will want good shoes. There are plenty of places to stop and rest and take in the amazing views. I didn't make it to the top but I will do this one again. Most beautiful hike I've done in a while.

There was snow about half way up that could be passed by taking a brief off-trail shortcut on some leafy and slightly muddy terrain. There were a few very small snow patches on the trail that I could just walk over. And about 0.5 miles from the end of the trail there was a very large snow patch covering steep terrain and I could not find any way around that. It is still worth it to hike this trail even though I couldn't quite reach the end this time.

Beautiful trail. Very well maintained for as far as I was able to go. Big snow patches at about 8200ft. Crossed a few until I got to a large one with a ~50° incline. Nah, I'm good.

Great Hike! A little muddy throughout the hike. Near the end of the hike there is a little bit of snow that requires hiking sticks or crampons. Great views.
