  • Relatively short walk to the overlook. Beautiful view of the canyon
  • Beautiful views. We went when it was extremely windy. Great area to see marmot and elk. Nice hike, it was only rough due to weather conditions and altitude otherwise it was a paved trail.
  • Visited on a warm day in November. Take warnings about altitude sickness seriously! Yes. It can and probably will affect you. Scenery, especially the alpine area is beautiful. Seen prettier national parks.
  • Great views and wildlife - worth a stop
  • Bring a coat, even in the summer. It's cold up here! There are marmots everywhere! It's amazing.
