Went after a week of rain so the views were pretty and green. The trail is a bit rough due to the dirt bike traffic. Good steady incline for conditioning. I did not go all the way to the top but only up a few miles then back.

The trail is well marked and easy to follow. It's a steady climb and I found it quickly tired me out. I did 3 miles in and turned around. Sat on some rocks and admired Pikes Peak. The trail is very exposed so bring plenty of water!

Hiked to the halfway point and back in an afternoon. The trail is essentially a 6 ft wide or so, ATV roadbed. That said, you can't get lost and the terrain you traverse is scenic and interesting, especially the varied rock formations. Pinion pine are common as the trail begins, but as you ascend these give way to ponderosa, spruce and white pine--all very nice. The trail up is one long ascent, but is not too steep. Certainly handable by the experienced hiker. Would make for a good overnight backpack hike to go the full length and return for a 12.5 mile round trip.

Trail is pretty torn up by ATVs and dirt bikes. Very rocky and uneven, Be sure to wear sturdy hiking boots or you could easily twist an ankle. The views are amazing.

Really was not expecting this trail to be straight up forever! Pack some food, lots of water and don't forget a hiking stick. But was nice scenery.
