The first part is pretty easy and it gets more difficult as you climb. The very last part will require some climbing and is pretty difficult. The views are amazing at the top. Stay to the boulder side of the last ascent and look for the orange dots. One of the regular climbers let me know the orange dots show the easiest part to climb.

This was the perfect level of difficulty for my two youngest children (8g & 9b). Helped them with learning their foot placement and decision making for a path up an open canvas of choices. They did great...very proud of them...be sure to hang out and check out Flattop in its entirety.

This trail is very busy on weekends, just a warning. There will be some rocks to navigate. Better to go June/July so ice is melted.
