Great hike! The views were spectacular! Saw 2 moose on the way. While finishing up we experienced a beautiful sunset highlighting the golden aspen leaves.

Great hike, beautiful way to enjoy the area in summer. Ridge trail is breathtaking, although the drop off on either side took it out of the woman in our group who was scared of heights. 4 stars mostly because of what others have said - the trail is poorly marked and the maps are pretty useless. All trails is a great help, since the resorts in the area don't seem to worried about marking summer activities.

Beautiful! Get ready to climb, because that’s all you’re going to do until you get to the top! : )

Great hiking trail just make sure to carry plenty of water. Views are espectacular. You can ride the gondola down for free if you reach the top. The trail is not that well marked.

The wildflowers and beautiful. with ockoberfest happening at the base, I thought the trail would be more busy. But we had it to ourselves. The top of the tram and Peruvian was busy since you can take the lift up. Beautiful views all the way up.

The flowers were insanely beautiful. We took the tram up and hiked down. My knees and butt are dying today but it was worth it. I plan to hike up it in 2 weeks.

This is a hike I love to do every year. Especially during Oktoberfest. A lot of elevation climb but so worth it in the end. I see so many people coming down, which for me I can't justify paying to kill my knees. Hike up, enjoy the views and ride the tram down for free! Then treat yourself to nice cold beer!

This was my first big hike as a "regular" hiker, not having hiked much before but now weekly, and it was challenging. The first section is scrambling up a hillside and a winding, wide trail up Peruvian gulch. The fall colors were just starting to show. Several feet of snow toward the top made it a real work out; the weather was great. The views from the summit were amazing. I took the tram for free to go back down and enjoy Oktoberfest. I would recommend this hike, however, it gets precarious the last mile and those afraid of heights might not enjoy it.
