Fun hike, easy access from Winter Park.

Great trail. Very scenic with some great streams and waterfalls. A little rocky on the trail, but doable. Just note that the route displayed on AllTrails only goes up to to the Hut, which makes the round trip only 2.8 miles. You have to (and will want to) go up past the hut and marked route to make it a 5 mile round trip.

Amazing backpack mid week, only saw two other tents. Gorgeous wild flowers, gorgeous alpenglow at dusk.

Amazing up there, lots of places to explore.

7/19/18-The road to the TH is rough (high clearance—consider renting a 4 wheeler—would be much better than our F250 truck!). Hike was beautiful—everything we love about a good mountain hike—wildflowers, beautiful parks, breathtaking views, dog friendly. Towards the pass some very steep drops off the trail will require heeling dogs or putting on leash. Only saw 2 other hikers, and 2 mountain bikers.

Drove up to Rollins (Corona) pass after our hike—the old railroad bed. Interesting history, and more beautiful views of Fraser Valley to the west, and the start of Boulder Creek which flows east.

This trail was nice, but toward the end, it’s now impassable. Lots of downed trees and I lost the trail at the falls. Still, pretty.

Wow wow wow! This is one of my favorites in the area. There’s a creek running along the trail from Broome hut to the tree line, so much of the trail is very lush and full of wildflowers. Good hike to the hut then it gets easier ;)

I was hesitant to hike this area based on the one review. There was very little dog poop. Good moderate hike. There is a creek that offers an opportunity for good pictures. You can enjoy the scenery as well as get a good hike it.

Fun first hike for this family from Michigan.

Very nice trail!

Quick and easy hike.

We finally made out to James Peak Wilderness this weekend. The start of the hike was ok but the higher we got the prettier the views! The wildflowers were amazing along with the views. We will definitely go back and explore more.

Loved this beautiful hike outside Frasier. The top affords some incredible views of a number of different ranges, not to mention of Winter Park and the ski resort. We completed this round trip in about 6 hours. The last mile along the ridge felt like a slog, and the first couple hours hiking up the road was a bummer, but the bits through the trees and the incredible views from the top made it worth it. We summited around 10:30 am and began our descent shortly thereafter, and the clouds were rolling in quickly. Be careful with weather in that exposed high alpine terrain!

great views, lots of places to stop and relax. one of my favorites!

Took my husband in his first backpack trip. Was well worth it as the flowers are in full bloom. Trail is well maintained. Rocky and lots of tree roots but the beauty makes up for it. We had perfect weather and were able to sleep under the stars.

Still my favorite hike in The Front Range even though it’s gotten more crowded over the past year. Did the hike on 7:14 and beautiful wildflowers all around the lakes! (There are three easily accessible! Don’t miss the first to the left behind the trees)

Started from Bonfiils Stanton outdoor center parking lot(added .3 miles ) to a beautiful hike! We saw moose! Gets a little tricky crossing the creek in areas! Fallen trees presented no problems. Not many hikers.

The first several miles run along a stream with lots of great waterfalls and plenty of shade. The first lake below Heart Lake has a great field of wild flowers and the views are amazing. Heart Lake is just as pretty, and well worth the hike. I would suggest going all the way to the Pass, as the views from the top are absolutely amazing. If you go to the right along the ridge, you can see Crater lake and both glacial lakes from above. There weren't as many people above Robert's Pass as below, but it never felt crowded.

Good hike, with a nice waterfall at the end. Plenty of traffic. You have to cross the stream a few times, some fallen trees, but they were being cleaned up and not that big of a deal. Plenty of mud, so I would recommend boots over tennis shoes.

This trail has the best smells and the best views. So many water falls and babbling brooks!!Definitely bring bug spray and ready your legs for a rocky terrain. The views at Heart lake are definitely worth it!

We did this hike today, 7/8/18, which was a Sunday. We got to the trailhead around 9:30am and the parking lot was pretty crowded, but there were still plenty of spots. The first mile is pretty steep. The Broome Hut (at about 1.1mi) has a bathroom. There were certainly steep spots for the rest of the hike, but the first mile was definitely the most consistently steep. We went all the way up to the summit and the 360 degree views were absolutely gorgeous. I would recommend trying to leave the summit by noon so you don’t get caught in bad weather. We started heading back down probably around 11:30-11:45, and it was getting pretty cloudy and you could see rain in the distance. We got drizzled on a bit later once we were back below tree line, but it wasn’t bad. I highly recommend this hike! The wildflowers are blooming right now too.

Beautiful trail, not too many folks out there with me when I arrived on a saturday afternoon. Its a steep climb to Broome hut, but the view is great. If you are able to, i highly recommend continuing onward - there's a beautiful field w a mountain-fed stream that meanders thru it. I wasn't able to make it to the summit due to weather coming in, but I'll definitely be back!

What a great trail! We went up on a July Saturday and started up around 845. There was still plenty of parking and there were only scattered hikers going up. I highly recommend going down before or after 12pm bc the sun was right in your face heading down from the Broome hut, so plan better than we did. The waterfall around Broome was super crowded on our descent, but if you keep going up you get into lovely meadows with snowmelt creeks and tons of flowers above treelike. Very doable with kids—albeit slow, but so many picture opportunities you won’t mind stopping a lot!


Truly idyllic hike - several waterfalls, and the wildflowers are exploding right now. There are several good shaded camping sites down by the lower lake (I'm not sure of the name.) Less up at heart lake, but it also seemed less crowded up there. And the views within the basin are breathtaking! Highly recommend this hike for a day trip or short backpacking adventure. Only downside was the bugs - there are LOTS of flies and mosquitoes.

A good hike, some fallen trees towards end. But passable, some scrambling but nothing hard. Moderately traveled.

make sure you look up the trailhead on google maps. The entry on here may not be correct. It was relatively easy and ended with a rewarding waterfall. The elevation gain is quite manageable and the fallen trees mentioned in the reviews are being overblown: they were easy to avoid and climb over/around.

I would rate it as easy with some portions more difficult. Many fallen trees across path,about mile from end and did not go any further. Could have gone further but did not want to scramble over the many fallen trees.

Great for kids
