WOW! What a view. This hike is definitely worth the effort. Besides the obvious view at the top, the rock slide is also a sight. I read other reviews that said the trail is difficult to find around this area but we didn't seem to...More

Easy access from rt 7 outside Estes Park. Roadside parking can fill up so start as early as you can. Great hike. Approx 7.6 miles from where we parked, about 1300 ft of gain. You cross through forest, scar of a big avalanche/wash-out, and through...More

This is a fairly rugged trail with some steep sections and lots of rocks. Make sure to take plenty of water, especially if leaving later in the day (in summer). Well marked and pretty well maintained as well as popular, should not be trouble to...More

Awesome views of longs peak and the mountain range. This trail is south of Estes park. There is not much parking so go early. The trail is quite strenuous especially around where the land slide took place. The new trail is very well marked.

This is a moderate difficulty hike. The trailhead offers decent parking if you arrive early (I was there at 0600). In the trees, rocky with lots of switchbacks. Generally easy to follow. Exception can be after initially crossing the landslide piece, but take your time....More

I did this hike one time just so I could go on a longer hike with the Y and will not ever do it again. Too many switch backs and rocks!! I like hikes that are lush and have lots of water. This hike is...More
