Windy road to the top, sharing road with bicyclers speeding down. There are trails to walk with no elevation gain but with lovely views toward Denver and RMNP. Wonderful scent of pine trees and a nice breeze.

We saw wildlife and enjoyed the views. Gotta be careful as you share narrow roads with lots of curves with bicyclists, do not stop in the middle of a road!

Stunning. True majesty. Went to the ampatheater, which offers fabulous and breathtaking views of the plains and Boulder. Butterflies, birds, raptors, trees, mountains, and peace. Bring water and relax. A quick must do and see. Winding road is fun. Be careful of bikers.
