Challenging trail, but lots of variety: through forested areas, lots of creeks and small waterfalls, wildflowers in the summer, a burn area, areas above tree line with sweeping views, boulder mound, scree fields. Most parts of the trail are not too steep, but everything is above 9,000 feet, so the climb is demanding if you aren't acclimated to the leaner oxygen.
