First time using this App so I kind of messed up my first post. This hike was amazing! I am an experienced hiker and brought my brother who is more experienced than me. We had our kids with us and my sister in law who had never been on a hike like this. - 2nd time in Colorado so they were newbies. They LOVED IT!!!Could not have been a better experience. If it's your 1st time, not to worry. You will celebrate at the end as my Loves did! Good luck!

This is a fabulous hike just South of Winter Park. Initially steep, the trail then becomes less difficult. After the Broome hut, continue for spectacular waterfall views and lovely snow fields just below the Continental divide. This is a winner.

Did this last Sunday (7/9). Very pretty hike just south of winter park, about 8 miles or so. You can hear traffic a bit for at least the first part of the trail as the TH is right off 40. There is a pretty stream running to your left very close to the trail with a few paths over to see. The incline is pretty good but if you take your time or keep a steady pace, it's a fairly short distance to the hut at the top (1.5 miles). Views to the right once you reach the but are nice, if you follow the path onwards past the hut there is a nice small, rocky waterfall about 100 yards or so. Overall easy hike, even with the incline. Nice for a quick hike.

Gorgeous hike that rivals some of the best in Colorado and even RMNP with all of its relics, wildflowers and cascades! Would be a fun one even for young kids just to go in for a short bit to see the first cascade and flowers (from Moffat Tunnel East Portal). The hike is mainly forested which is fantastic for hot summer days. No beetle kill. Just delicious smelling forest and flowers and cascade after cascade. But the real reward was reaching Rogers Pass Lake! I camped there because I thought it was prettier than Heart and had more tree coverage for protection. However, the second night I was there it was as if a plane dropped off 100 backpackers and suddenly there were tents every 20 feet! Saw some horrible habits like not hanging food properly and cooking in camp. Felt more like a campground party than a wilderness experience at that point. Hundreds of dayhikers coming in on my hike out at 8am. Dogs all off leash (against the rules). Trailhead completely full. Go during the week if you can. If not, it's still worth it even with the masses of people.

Trail was beautiful towards the last two miles. Meadows, streams, wildflowers, scenic bridges all made for a great hike. Muddy towards the last half mile right before Rodgers. We camped at Rogers but went to the top to see Heart Lake. Moderately trafficked on the weekends.

7/16/17 trail is open to the point above the 2nd lake. Snow blocking road at that point but looks like 4wheelers can make it past but be very careful! The shoulder is falling off and it's a long way down! The tunnel is closed due to falling rocks. All and all it's a fun trail and lots to do. A lot of people at the first lake hanging out. Watch the weather it changes fast!
