Coming from the Midwest, the steep incline and elevation change was tough to battle, but we did reach the summit. Walking sticks helped a lot, so I recommend. If you hike in the afternoon, make sure you have rain gear. We were told and did experience rain (sleet actually) in the mid afternoon. Watch your steps on the trail, as there are lots of places you could easily twist an ankle. Remember where you crossed at the mud slide area, so you don't get off the trail. The views from the summit are great. It took us 3hrs to reach the summit, but if you're an experienced hiker and used to the CO elevation, you could probably make it in 2hrs or so. Lastly, to save some time and breath, you can drive up past the lower lot and park closer to the trail head. Just make sure you're down the mountain before they close the gates. Good luck.
