Moderately easy, well marked trail through mostly open meadows and aspens. About 60% sun/exposed; 20% partial shade; 20% total shade. Some rough and cobbled sections but most of trail is worn dirt path. Hiked mid-day over Labor Day weekend (9/01/18) and passed about a dozen people who were hiking, mountain biking or on motorcycles. Not what I would consider over crowded for a holiday weekend given several miles of trail. Pretty aspens but not any great destination points on the trail. Its fairly easy and a quick trail to get some outdoors time in. Crosses a few tiny springs that I expect flow quite a lot more in the spring. Expect several cows.
