Great 14er, strenuous as expected. Lots of false summits, many encouraging people along the way! Pretty crowded but all great people with the same goal! Be kind to your knees on the way down, would have liked to have tried it with poles.

Great hike, I agree with others that this is one of the easier fourteeners. Views towards Leadville are nice. Would give five stars but the road in is awful, did not like that part at all.

Great hike for a family! (As long as you are in ok shape) Make sure to take your bug spray and watch the weather report. We were there 7-17-17. We took our 6yr old and 3yr old. Just make sure to hold hands on the incline and be ready to take breaks. The view and lake were totally worth it.

Well maintained trail, all the steepest parts reward you with some incredible views!

Beautiful hike! Strenuous, but doable for the average hiker. With numerous false summits, the key to successfully accomplishing this 14er is having a strong mental game paired with the willingness to get to the top... and of course plenty of water (I drank 5 liters), a wind breaker, food, and trekking poles. Your knees will thank you for the trekking poles on the way down!
