  • Nice and easy hiking trail.
  • Beautiful trail. The hike is awesome
  • Pretty good hike. Right smack dab in the middle of the eastern side of the park. Not too crazy of views. Fairly easy hike - about 6 miles round trip from the intersection in the park (36 and Fall River road or whatever). And about 1200ft elevation gain. Not my favorite hike though. Just another option when the parking is full.
  • Great moderate hike to the top. Beautiful view from the top that gave a bomb view of the other mountains.
  • Our first hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. Pretty easy incline and amazing views at the top. Most difficult part is scramble at the top. Worth the effort!
