Very enjoyable hike. About 6 miles out and back; moderate hike. There were still a few wildflowers in very late August. We got a very early start, hiking through forests but coming into pretty meadows along the way. We were beside a stream most of the way. Apparently you can see moose sometimes but we weren't so lucky. Columbine Lake was very scenic with impressive mountains surrounding the lake.
