As previous reviewers state, get there early. The place fills up rather quickly. This is by no stretch an difficult hike but is uphill most of the way. Coupled with the high elevation, if you are a low lander, prepare to be winded. Oh, and...More

This two hour plus hike has some rough spots and it is mostly uphill. But the views of a waterfall and the end point by a tarn make this one of the most popular summer wildflower hikes.

We had a great time on this hike, the views were beautiful and the scenery was very nice. We saw a lot of wild life. Definitely would do it again!

The views from this trail were spectacular. The people I met along the trail were friendly and encouraged me to continue to the top when I was about tog give up. About 4 miles south of town. The roads were narrow and ice covered.

A medium challenging hike, expecially if you are affected by altitude. But what an amazing hike, stunning scenery, waterfalls in multiple locations and if you make it to the top there is a lovely lake.

If you are staying a few days, better to wait for altitude adjustment. Very strenuous yet children (ages 7, did most & 10, did all) were able to do most of the trek 1st full day. Views are spectacular. Even saw mountain goats this time.

It is probably closed in March. When we were there last year the trail didn’t open until June.

The way we went we could see it from the drive in the car. You can see it much better if you get out and walk around and explore, then stop when it gets to be too much. I am almost 62 years old in average shape and I climbed... More
