Great Trail!! There is a lot of snow on the trail, but NO ICE. We had no problems hiking in regular hiking boots. There are markers every half mile or so. I was happy to see a sign at the end of the trail that said that we hiked the equivalent of Mt. Yale which is 14,200 feet. Of course the trail is flat , but that makes it an excellent training trail for the higher elevated trails to be conquered over the summer. Eventhough we couldn't fine a 9.2 mile marker, 2 friendly rangers confirmed this distance. Hope to come back someday.

Snowshoe'd up this trail today. Beautiful weather for the 1st of March with lots of snow. We took the trail up but bushwhacked down. The views are great and it's close to Denver. Normally I like to hike a more difficult route in summer but with the snow this was a nice workout. Wonderful views of Mt Evans and the Lost Creek Wilderness. The Divide was covered in clouds as was Denver.

Great hike but steep at places. If you are hiking this in winter, traction devices, ski or water resistant pants and poles are recommended. Look out for the right directions as you will intersect with other trails along the way

Crosier Mountain Trail

Just an awesome place to hike and find solitude and experience with what CO has to offer. There are four trail heads, three are marked and are on the road to Glen Haven. The fourth can be accessed from Rt. 34 and goes up Sullivan Gulch. When you top out at the end of the trail one can go East for a full view of Crosier Mountain. Or head West find your way up on the spur where there are some more awesome views. If one takes any of the trails from the Glen Haven road, there is a spot where you can get some awesome views of Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain Park. Head South when you reach the junction of the trail to the summit. Meander out on the flats and then look to the West.
This has to be one of my favorite places to hike in CO.
