Headed up through Black Hawk and rode through the Mountains and headed to Estes Park, Co. to see the trees changing and headed to Loveland Co. What an awesome view to see the entire drive.

For the occasional hiker it's worth waiting until mid-July to avoid snow and ice on the last 1.5 mile stretch of the trail. And sharing the trail during peak season with other hikers can reduce the risk of getting off trail. Nonetheless it's important to...More
