My niece and I hiked the La Junta trail--at 800 vertical feet, the steepest in the park. The climb was challenging, but exhilarating once completed. Rockslides make footing on the initial descent somewhat difficult, but switchbacks along the trail make it manageable for climbers in reasonably good condition. The trail takes you to the banks of two rivers that converge. Rangers advised that the round-trip could take up to 3 hours, but we completed it in about 2-1/4 hours, including time spent at the bottom.
