So my son was spending the summer in Breckenridge, and we were fortunate to visit him. He found this hike and encouraged us to join him- I was a bit leary, as I haven't really hiked in a while.
The hike is moderate in intensity- about an 800 foot elevation increase and some rockiness- but totally do-able for anyone without joint troubles and in reasonable shape. There are beautiful falls that you can see at different points. My son pushed us to go to the top, where we found a stunning glacial like.
We did this hike in July and I really enjoyed seeing beautiful mountain wildflowers. We also encountered an old mine which evidently a private owner still operates. Pretty cool, though.
This hike was a major part of a perfect vacation day.
