Not my favorite trail in RMNP. Lots of rock/boulder steps & pretty steep throughout. Not unstable, just steep until the end when you're forced to scramble up a boulder field to the top which we decided to pass on due to weather. Some great views of Longs Peak along the way though. Probably won't do this one again though. Too many other trails to tackle!

Hard all the way to the top but worth it for the views from up there!

Really fun and challenging hike with spectacular views. The first 3.5 miles to the base of the mountain aren't bad at all. The final ~1300 ft scramble from the bottom to top is easy but physically demanding. Plus you've to come back down the same way which will definitely take a toll on your knees so carry walking sticks for support if you want. We took 4 hours to summit and 3 to come back to the parking lot. Carry healthy snacks, a beanie and cold weather jacket. Highly recommend this hike!

Awesome views at the top make it worth the last 0.7 mike scramble. Arrived 6:30am and plenty of parking still available by Lily Lake (it’s a small lot though so any later and may have been full).

The lake is lovely and flat, we did a circuit through the valley behind the lake as well, which was easy and lightly trafficked.

The last scramble to the top is pretty well marked with cairns, but tough, though as I said, the 360 views are so worth it.

First little stretch is pretty steep then mostly flat up to the lake. Beautiful views!

Spectacular views from the summit! Had the mountain to ourselves! The direct route up the east face consists of really fun boulder hopping - but it’s deceivingly long. We thought we’d be up it in just a few minutes... Wrong! If you’re looking for an easier way to the summit, consider avoiding a bunch of class 3 elevation gain by staying on the Boulderfield trail up to the north side of the mountain, then take a left toward the saddle just off the summit. Either way is fantastic!

Very good hike: good trail, good views, a little scramble at the top. More people than I expected on a weekday, but they were mostly from the LP trailhead.

Great view at the top, not terribly challenging

I love the awesome view from the summit. This trail is one of my favorite and have been hiking it for the last 18 years.

Just down from this hike. Quite the bouldering route! Beautiful day. Awesome view of Longs peak. Add a mile to the advertised distance for parking unless you are very lucky. Longs peak trail is always crowded but when you leave the trail you have Lady Washington all to yourself.
