Great place four a bike ride or hike. Can be difficult but worth the trip. Beautiful scenery. Worth the effort. Stop off in Durango for a great dinner.

I walk up there a lot from my house and enjoy the scenery and people. Mountain bikes. People either beginning or conquering their hike. Most just enjoying nature with their family.

My husband and I come here every year and are still as impressed as the first time we came. The scenery is beautiful and the snow-capped mountains are stunning. We love it here so much.
