This trail is addicting. As you are doing it you wonder why you are putting yourself through it but the views along the way and the comraderie among the hikers on the way up is amazing. Once you make it to the top it is one of the most satisfying feelings and you can’t wait to do it again. The trail is maintained very well and has outhouses and a brick and mortar restroom in the gift shop/coffee house at the bottom of the trail. One of the best experiences I have had in CO so far.
