It's a short hike from the trailhead in Hermit Park, which is 3 miles east of Estes Park. You drive up about 2.5 miles, park in a parking lot to the east of the restroom buildings, and hike starting west up the trail, which is marked. It's only a 4 mile round trip, so won't exhaust reasonably fit flatlanders. Dogs are allowed there, too. When you get to the top of the trail there is a fun, short, easy scramble to the summit, where you get great views of Estes Park, the Continental Divide mountains, Lumpy Ridge, and to the east you can look down into Hermit Park. There is a $6 fee to enter Hermit Park, and it is closed in the winter.
