This is more of a climb, than a hike. Especially when you get up. We saw a black bear on our way up, and several Marmots. Good hike. More for experienced hikers or those in good shape.

Arrived about 8:30 a.m. on Friday June 29. Parking lot was full and we had to park a ways down the highway. Talked to some visitors who arrived before sunrise to attempt to summit the Peak.

Headed up through Black Hawk and rode through the Mountains and headed to Estes Park, Co. to see the trees changing and headed to Loveland Co. What an awesome view to see the entire drive.
