Mount Flora Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The relatively gentle “climb” of 13,132-foot Mount Flora along the Mount Flora Trail section of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail passes through the old Berthoud Pass Ski Area then into the “Land Above the Trees.” The trail wanders in and out of the James Peak Wilderness. The miniature world of the alpine tundra will dazzle you with a carpet of tiny, colorful wild?owers surviving in a harsh place. The 360-degree views from Mount Flora’s summit range from the expansive ?atness of the eastern plains, to valleys with beautiful alpine lakes, to peaks as far as you can see."

not too bad of a trail. if you like wide open views, this trail is all that! only at the start of the trail are there trees, but once you get onto the single track part, the trees are sparse. most of the trail is above treeline. vegetation is not the most interesting, but there are great views of the continental divide. it was a bit windy towards the top. the trail is maintained very well, only a few sections that were rocky.
