“Tough hike but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

3000' elevation gain in 3 miles makes for some sore quads, but the hike was very pretty and the views up top were beautiful and the mountain goats on the way down made our day. Weather was warm n sunny but very windy and 25 degrees cooler up top so glad we had sweatshirts n gloves with us. Probably not for the out of shape, but a nice hike.

“Easiest 14er”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

If you want to bag a 14er, this is the mountain for you. Hike up is gradual incline. Then when you near the summit the fun begins, then it is harder, narrow and HIGH. There is a false summit. Start as early as you can to avoid frequent storms. We are seniors and found this hike doable for us. Be sure to stay at altitude long enough to acclimate to altitude.
