This is a beautiful hike which connects three summits. There's a lot of elevation gain so it's not an easy hike. You can also do each summit individually if doing the whole loop at once is beyond your skill level. If you're visiting Colorado you may also need some time to get used to the high altitude. This hike is beautiful in the summer but I prefer it in winter for the snowy landscapes.

Beautiful hike and a nice long day. Completed hike in about 8 hours, with about 30 of rest divided among the peak summits. It did get hot during the later part of the hike, and I would not do this one in the middle of summer. It's a great hike in the spring though, the wildflowers were abundant and beautiful!
