This hike is amazing! Very strenuous and long, we started at the trailhead at 5 am and finished around 2:30 pm. The elevation change is very difficult; we did the hike without trekking poles but I definitely recommend them. There are some spots where they would've been very helpful. Make sure to bring alot of water and take some breaks, 16.5 miles is no walk in the park.

Accidentally left a full pack of gear after dark near the trailhead after search and rescue got our friend life flighted from Denver after falling in a Boulder slide. Red Deuter pack, hiking poles, life straw filter, camelbak bladder, jet boil stove, and some other gear in it. 816 729 7213 hoping for a miracle if anyone sees it out there!

Pretty hike we've done a couple of times. Follows an old mine road up the valley to a pass that crosses into the Lincoln Creek valley and ghost town Ruby. Saw a herd of elk on one of our hikes there. Long, rutted 4 wheel drive road to the trailhead (a couple stream crossings, but not a narrow road nor near drop offs.

Beautiful...but I don't like sharing with ATVs. There were not many, but I prefer the peace and quiet. If this doesn't bother you, then you will love this trail! Great dispersed camping near here as well...if you have 4 wheel drive.
