Shady in the early morning with more sun as you go. After taking the sharp turn (that we missed the first time) the trail winds through the forest with beautiful foliage. It was peaceful (didn’t see a single ATV) and the perfect difficulty for someone getting over knee problems. Would 100% hike again!

The all trails path is a tiny bike only path and they are flying so definitely don’t follow that. There are signs telling you not to hike on them. However there is a path you can take but it is heavily trafficked by trucks and constant dirt flying everywhere. Love winter park and gorgeous go hang out and bike but wouldn’t recommend for hiking. .

Great hike! Awesome views once you get out of trees. Steep ascent through alpine meadows. Add Ptarmigan Peak for total off 2550 vertical. 4 hours RT with time for lunch at top. Road is pretty good until Byers Peak turnoff, then need high clearance vehicle.

Beautiful hike!! I went on Monday 9/9/19, got to the trailhead around 12:30pm (I checked the weather, no storms forecasted), and there were only three other cars at the trailhead. One couple coming down said they saw a bear near the Broome Hut so I made sure to sing Queen loudly throughout the hike. The hut was so cool, I’d always wanted to encounter one while hiking! I loved that the terrain went from the woods to spotty trees to totally above treeline, my favorite. The incline up to the hut is no joke so be prepared for that. Beautiful creek and views all the way. Highly recommend!

A beautiful hike. It just steadily goes up. The scenery was well worth it. There is a small waterfall at the end of the trail.

Fantastic views for a little work. Arrived at 630, first car at trailhead. Reached summit in 2 hours, down in just over an hour hiking/running. Around 20 cars when I left.

Good Hike very near Winter Park. Not crowded at all on a Sunday. Trailhead has a sign partially hidden by a tree but it says Jim Creek Trail. Everything still green in early September. Most wildflowers were gone at this time of year.

Great trail- proposed on top today to my now fiancé. Caught lucky weather. We had to hike 3.6 miles to get to trail head using the gps coordinates on this map on Apple for some reason

The most perfect hike. Caught the last of the wildflowers today. The trail is dry and clear, and once you get above tree line, there are great cairns that mark the trail all the way to the top. Beautiful stream. A nice incline. Views for days. It was perfect.

Wonderful trail but the the trail isn’t paved towards the end, I recommend downloading a map prior

We didn’t end up hiking this trail - stopped at the Devil’s Thumb Lodge for the bathroom and found out that there’s a $10/person hiking fee. Also it’s best to drive past the lodge and park near the stable to find the trailhead.

Ran this trail. Great run with a good climb going out but breaks with flat sections. Lots of wildflowers and last mile is in the trees.

This was wayyyyy too difficult to be labeled "easy" if on a mountain bike. Both myself and my husband fell in the slippery sand when navigating the rocks, trees, stumps and tight turns. Mine was a 10 bandage event, his less bloody. How was the rating given? I'm getting more wary of AllTrails rating systems.

Great hike. Easy to miss the cutoff across the face, but bushwhacking works okay. If you hit the meadow you have gone too far. Lots of good mushrooms

Pleasant hike above tree line. Rough road getting there, honestly amazed our 15 passenger van made it. Hard breathing for low landers, but trail a good mix of short ups, level and gradual downs. Got chased to car by 2p thunderstorm. Enjoyable hike at high elevation, wildflowers, snow fields and pikas.

Beautiful and rewarding Hike. The parking area is approximately 3 miles from the trailhead. You can hike or bike the first 3 miles as the trail is an old dirt road that is slowly being reclaimed into nature along the river. The bike will be rocky in parts, and you may need to dismount to cross a stream depending on how the water flows. There is a bike rack at the trail head. Our Garmin showed 11.8 riles round trip from parking area to St Lousi Peak. After the first 3 miles, you will hike fairly steeply up along the river, crossing it a few times, and then at approximately the 1/2 way point, you will hike up and through a meadow full of various mountain flowers. At the back of the meadow, you will come to a split in the trail giving you a few options. The sign is easily missed. You will hike another steep incline above the meadow, which then levels out to an up and down trail until you reach the lake. Early in the season (June) you will run into scattered snow fields. Late in the season (Aug) there will be some snow at higher levels, but many more flowers.

Regularly hike this trail. Except for the mountain bikers in a portion, it is a lovely, quiet hike that takes you to a wonderful view of Byers and Bills peaks.
