I did this trail as part of a group of the Colorado Mountain Club. The trail is well maintained and mostly soft ground with a few rocks here an there. It is also well marked and mostly under tree cover so there is little exposure and no chance of getting lost. It is also long and it has a substantial elevation gain but the ascent is gradual (and thus long). When you reach the exposed area towards the summit then you have to veer of the trail and walk on the tundra to actually reach the peak. There are a few markings and a faint trail at places and there is a sign as well a signature box at the top. Reaching the top requires a bit of a scramble but is not bad. The rock formations at the top as well as the vistas are amazing and worth the effort. It was a bit foggy and frosty at the top but we could still see well. It took about 4 h to get to the top and about 3 h to come back down.
