Pretty busy for a weekday but still possible to find some solitude along the way. The trail is fairly steep but very well maintained, and both the Continental Divide overlook and the remains of the old hotel are interesting rest stops. Summer's already arriving here - virtually no snow on the trail and only muddy in a couple of spots.

There are a few sections of the trail that are rough, so it's important to watch your footing. Elevation gain is on the higher side, so breathe breaks are a good idea. Great view of the Continental Divide. Suggest going to the old hotel site and up to the train tacks during the hike. Also, watch for snakes!

Great short and easy trail in the area. Beautiful views across the east and always a climber on the crags above to watch. Def worth the short jaunt.

Really great hike. We got there by 11am and almost didn't get parking. Make sure you get there early, there's a limited amount of parking spaces available.

Amazing views.
