We did the hike in early October. There was a good bit of snow and ice above tree-line but that made it more adventurous. I have done a good bit of backpacking so I would rate this as moderate. It took us about 2 hours...More

This is a relatively busy trail. I started up at 7:15 am and there were a dozen cars already at the trail head. Well marked trail. Steep in places-especially just after you cross the rock slide area. I used a hiking stick, which helped with...More

Steep and challenging, but the view from the top is magnificent. Bring a walking stick and good hiking boots, a little treacherous across the landslide area from a few years back, and then after that it is almost straight up before another switch back.

My buddy and me rode Harleys to Pikes Peak from Aurora. See my other reviews for the full trip itinerary and places to stay and eat. This was an incredible experience. Along the way up there are many areas to stop and take a break...More

WOW! What a view. This hike is definitely worth the effort. Besides the obvious view at the top, the rock slide is also a sight. I read other reviews that said the trail is difficult to find around this area but we didn't seem to...More

Easy access from rt 7 outside Estes Park. Roadside parking can fill up so start as early as you can. Great hike. Approx 7.6 miles from where we parked, about 1300 ft of gain. You cross through forest, scar of a big avalanche/wash-out, and through...More

This is a fairly rugged trail with some steep sections and lots of rocks. Make sure to take plenty of water, especially if leaving later in the day (in summer). Well marked and pretty well maintained as well as popular, should not be trouble to...More

Awesome views of longs peak and the mountain range. This trail is south of Estes park. There is not much parking so go early. The trail is quite strenuous especially around where the land slide took place. The new trail is very well marked.

This is moderately difficult hike with an amazing panoramic view at the top. Well worth the 3.5 mile, 2000 foot vertical trek to the summit. The hike can be described in 3 sections. The first takes you from the trailhead to the landslide, and is...More
