Nice hike with a great view of Monument, Co. from the top. I've been up there on a clear day and could see Denver.

Trailhead 716 is 5 miles after turning onto Mt Herman Rd. Great vertical hike with stunning views at the top! 2 miles out and back.

Fairly steep incline with loose gravel in the first 1/4 of the hike. Middle portion of hike has gentle, gradual incline before a steeper last 1/4 to the summit. Effort is completely worth the views at the summit. This includes good views of pikes peak, the Air Force academy, and the city of monument below (on a clear day). Made the hike with my wife and 2 year old strapped to the back in a kelty......would do it all over again!!!

I hiked this in the spring as a good getaway from town. Nice hike and get away. Parking is limited.

I have hiked this trail my whole life, as I live very close to the mountain. Even as a kid this trail was exciting, and I would recommend it to any able bodied or strong willed hiker. Not too tough, not remarkably easy, it's a good way to spend a day outdoors. There's great wildlife to see, and perhaps the most impressive is during mid-July through August. At the top, in shady spaces between rocks, ladybugs gather to find mates and breed, and lemme tell ya, there are several thousand. Hope you enjoy!

easy hike for ages 16-25. hard for ages 6-12 due to steep slopes and unstable rock. not recommended for the overwieght and ages +40 unless you do hike a lot. great view, but no different than the view from gold camp road.

Located at trail head #716 on Mt. Herman rd, the trail is pretty well marked until you get near the top (just keep going up). There are great views from the top, and along the way. We were there in March, the trails were clear of ice with just a little snow. There is an aspen grove along the way, wish we could have seen it while they were in bloom. The hike isn't very difficult (unless you're not used to the altitude at all).
