drove up the road in a Chevy van rear wheel drive. as long as you have decent clearance you can make it. We camped and hiked up devil's thumb across the ridge and down to kings lake.

Wonderful hike! Beautiful wildflowers, creek and views!

Moderate some shade, not very steep.

Great family hike.

Fun, easy hike for family with pretty views!

Went Iast weekend with the kids. It was so beautiful! We made it to the waterfall at the top. So worth it. Kids said it was the best day ever.

Gorgeous hike to hut. Family and dog friendly. Will go again for sure. Whole family raved about it

Fantastic. Best hike in the rockies

Great hike with views almost the entire time. Nice views back to the other surrounding peaks and along the stream when you break out past the hut. We made it to the summit and followed the trail markers to pile of boulders on the top. We could see the ski resort off in the distance but turned back since we were already pushing our luck with the storms. We started the hike at 11:30 and didn't get any rain or dark clouds. This is obviously pretty lucky for Colorado in July. We didn't see any columbines but we did see a moose!

Well marked trail. Beautiful scenery. Take your time.

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 up there, lots of places to explore.

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!

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

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.

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.

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!

Great!
