Brutal gravel. Suggest doing in the fall! Did not complete. Odds were not in my favor

Mount Rosa is one of the most incredible hikes I have been on - not every mountain has a 360* view at the summit. Very lightly trafficked - we didn't see a single other person on the trail, and is a very manageable distance when starting from Frosty's Park (although we had to hike a mile or so to the trailhead). Only downside is that it's hard to get to if you're not starting at North Cheyenne Canyon Park - Old Stage isn't so bad but you shouldn't drive too far on FR 379 to get to the trailhead unless you have a high clearance vehicle. Once at Frosty's park, the trail is the one furthest to the right (622 I believe). A while in, you'll get to a split in the trail; we made the mistake of continuing instead of turning right, so make sure you do turn and continue to gain elevation.

Beautiful hike! I climbed from the canyon (via St Mary’s Falls) which was about a 14 mile hike RT. Bring lots of snacks and water if you’re planning to go this longer route.

Mt. Rosa is an excellent hike, panoramic 360 view well worth the climb. A high clearance, short wheelbase vehicle ( jeep ) is necessary to get to Frosty Park via 379. The climb is moderate in difficulty, trail easy to follow, rock cairns as you approach the summit, which would be very helpful if the trail was snow covered. The footing can be treacherous on the descent, lots of small rocks/dry sand. Overall, I would highly recommend this hike.

Amazing.Very nice view. Easy trail. Definitely recommend.

The trail itself was nice. It was a little confusing once you got to the top of the mountain as there was no signage and 3 different trails you could take. Stay right to reach the summit. The views were great. Pretty cool view of Pikes Peak.

Rating it a 3 because of the road to get in. I had a Jeep and still had some trouble so I'd recommend high clearance. And you could hear shot guns the whole time.

Really fun hike! Getting to the trailhead was the best part! It was like the best of both worlds. 4wheeling and hiking!

Loved this hike. Had my two dogs and they killed it! Definitely doing Rosa again!

Did this hike today. Very beautiful. Unless you want to hike in, adding an extra couple miles to the actual hike. You NEED high clearance.

My only complaint is the abundance of shotgun and bullet casings near the trailhead. The area is known for being an unofficial shooting range but the people who use it as such don’t clean up after themselves.

Beautiful trail, lower, mid and upper but I thought it was a moderate +.

We loved this trail. Our dog had a blast. This does have some moderate areas and some easy areas along the hike. Worth it!

it's beautiful! and really easy to follow.

I have not done this trail yet but it looks cool. Based on pics 10/10 would recommend that I do it in the future. Alright welp, see ya later

Did this today with great ease!! Drove my '05 Ford focus to the 379 trailhead via old stage road which took approximately 40min from the bottom of it. My odometer read 11.5mi when we reached the parking area on the left side of the road. The road is in good enough condition to take any reliable vehicle down which I recommend vs taking the longer route through gold camp road. Everything was smooth and easy to find. Highly recommend.

Must have high clearance vehicle to get to trail head, well worth the almost 45 min drive to reach the trail head. Hike is not bad and views are amazing!

Climbed My Rosa via St Mary's Falls trail, about 12 miles round trip but what a great hike

Beautiful hike, some difficult parts. If you're going to drive, don't take a car with low clearance.

Got the to top of Mt. Rosa via Seven Bridges trail and coming down via St. Mary's Fall. 15.3 miles round trip with 4383 elevation gain. Going up Seven Bridges is about a mile longer, but so worth it.

If you don't have a high clearance vehicle you won't get to the trailhead it lists without scraping. Trail was sweet but weather got nasty right when I reached the summit. Basically ran down the mountain to make it to my jeep just before the hail hit. Good trail. I would have hung out on top for awhile if the weather was nicer.

Loved this hike, but it requires at least double the time from the route I took, from N. Cheyenne Canyon trailhead. Really enjoyable up Buffalo Creek to FS Road, then it gets steeper up east/north flank of Rosa. Relatively easy to follow trail up to saddle area between north "summit" at 11,000 ft or so, and south summit at 11,499 ft. You get an easy walk to slope up south side for the final stretch. This last part is common with what's shown here in All Trails. Great views in all directions from summit. Be sure to find NGS marker. It's been a few years since I've done this one, second time was easier, I was in better hiking shape!

This is a great hike. Very beautiful all around, easy at first, graduating to a solid moderate rating all the way to the top. I started the hike from the St. Mary's Falls trail. It was a great 1st hike for getting acclimated back to Colorado, before hitting any 14ers. At the intersection where National Forest meets US Forest you walk through an opening in the fence. Make sure you're following the trail that heads up hill, & NOT the road that crosses the path perpendicularly. Beautiful views from the top of the lake, pikes peak & CO Springs. Make sure you bring plenty of water- @ least 2 liters- during the summer time it gets HOT. I drank all 2 liters by the time I got back to the parking lot.

Really enjoyed this trail. I parked farther down the road, because it looked a bit hairy. As long as you have a vehicle with clearance you will be fine though. There are some spots where the rocks will slide a bit but push on through and you will be rewarded with a heck of a view.
