The road to the trail is crummy but the hike is worth it. Nice trail and pretty easy.

Best views I've ever seen on a hike. Mild trail with an epic watch tower at the end with a nice old man stationed there watching for forest fires. Favorite "views" hike I've done to date.

Snow blocked the last part of the trail, but great views to that point.

Awesome hike but there are some steeper parts that can be difficult. We saw a mama and baby mountain goat! Very cute. Views from the peak are amazing

Another good hike but busy trail. I try to avoid Chatauqua on the weekends but even weekdays can be busy. Weekends also are pay to park or take the free shuttle, weekdays parking is still free.

BEAUTIFUL trail! There are great views the entire way. If you do not have a high clearance vehicle you'll have to hike about .5 miles to the trailhead.

Absolutely amazing.

First 14er for me to climb. Beautiful and well marked trail all the way to the ridge. The switchbacks as you get to the top are definitely difficult. To reach the actual summit you have to climb across a lot of boulders. Very difficult to maneuver and not marked.

Fun hike. Dog couldn't make it up the last ridge though, a little bit of scrambling to the top.

I live in California and was visiting family. Found this trail and it was amazing medium difficulty for running. Lots of hikers and mountain bikers. Everyone I encountered was very friendly.
