This is a great trail and a great 14er experience. The trailhead is easy to find and the trail is easy to follow, so those are not things to worry about, however my hiking partners and I were shocked at how not "simple" the entire day was, as all of the books make it out to be. These were my 12, 13 and 14th 14ers, so I do have experience. live at 9,00 ft. and am in great shape, so handled it fine, but the average person reading words like easy and stroll in the description can be very misled, in fact we passed a few groups with folks not the least bit prepared. By 14er standard they are not trechorous, but since they are 14ers, the word easy can never be used. Also, since you are connecting on 2 saddles, the time spent at a very high altitude is much more than most 14ers that you summit, eat and turn around, this is hiking at over 13,000 ft. for a long time and can exhaust even the most experienced of hiker. This is not meant to discourage anyone from this trail, it is just a bit more reality than the books lead on. Enjoy!
