Niwot Cutoff, Usfs Trail 907.1 Professional Reviews and Guides
"More than a shortcut to Long Lake when parking at higher trailheads is full, the Niwot Cutoff is a peaceful route through magnificent subalpine forest to even more magnificent subalpine meadow flowers."
--Kent Dannen, Best Hikes Colorado's Indian Peaks Wilderness (Falcon Guides).
"This hike travels up to and across Niwot Ridge. Beautiful vistas, wildflowers, and alpine tundra are the main attractions of this wonderful day hike. Trail conditions: The lower portion of the trail is well-maintained; rocky and steep across the tundra."
--Bob D'Antonio, Hiking Colorado's Indian Peaks Wilderness (Falcon Guides).
