This trail info was very deceiving. There was a picture of a lake on this page but you cannot get to is on this trail!

The trail was okay... but once you get to the end there is not place to camp!!! The trails in the Rocky Mountains park were AWFUL!

Also one side of it trail is cut off. No good! very deceiving. All in all for a day hike yes!!! the trail rocks. but for backpacking I would say a hard no!

Very beautiful and peaceful, did this two weeks ago and there were still some nice fall colors. Also forded the river near the junction with the north boundary trail and found kettle tarn

Wonderful trail that had everything I wanted today, dog friendly, decent elevation change and distance as well as wonderful fall aspens and very few people

Took the family (9 yo and 13 yo + dog) on this hike and went to the intersection with the 931 trail. A few peek-a-boo views on the way up were nice. Stopped at Table Rock for lunch which was great. Then continued on to the trail intersection, which wasn't quite worth the effort. I'd say if you aren't going all the way to the top Table Rock is the right turnaround.

Not sure I would do this hike again however. I think it should probably be rated Moderate rather than Easy. It was uphill and often steep the whole way in.

The trail head is a little less than pleasant too. Construction trailer and portable potty didn't inspire our wilderness intentions. Minor detail overall, but we noticed.

Great trail. I would recommend this for a short hike that offers a few challenges and wonderful views.

Crosier Mtn. via Garden Gate Trailhead. This is an excellent route, 2 miles of steep ascent through thick woods then across Piper meadows and continues through a couple valley/ridges to Crosier Summit. 5.1 miles up, 2600' ascent, through some of the most beautiful backcountry you'll experience. I've run, hiked and snowshoed this route and have done the Glen Haven to Garden gate [Drake] route and it's both beautiful and serene. The vistas on the way up are amazing and Crosier summit provides an awesome view of RMNP.
