    This hike was great. Lots of high alpine forest, meadow. Beautiful walk through the Aspens. There is a lookout tower at the top, although on our hike the view was obscured by low clouds. It is a fairly strenous hike as the majority of the climb is in the first 3 miles. After that the hiking is easier.

    I hiked this trail recently just at the cusp of autumn's end. A few of the abundant aspens were hanging onto their leaves must most of the trail was paved with gold and brown aspen leaves. The trail is a nice combination of uphill spurts and level terrain with beautiful views. A very uncrowded trail - I only came across one small group of equestrian riders and had a chance to see an elk herd at the edge of a meadow. During the summer and fall before the leaves fall the aspens create a beautiful backdrop of shimmering leaves that fill the air with a soothing sound. In late fall and early winter, the silence provides an excellent meditative hike! This is also a great hike to hear elk bugeling during rutting season in the early fall.
