Really enjoyed this trail, very secluded and a decent drive to get to. 4WD/AWD may be required depending on the weather.

Pros: Great hiking, good elevation gains and drops, great scenery, not crowded, creek at the TH is nice, very dog friendly, tons of wildlife

Cons: Not terribly difficult to find, but not a ton of parking and the road may be rough/muddy/require AWD/4WD, be prepared for wildlife and don't approach it (last time I went up I encountered a bear about 100 yds off).

There was still a fair amount of snow on the trail towards the end but overall I really enjoyed it. There weren't very many high point views but the views of the valley with Mount Evans in the background were great. It was overcast during the entire hike so I can only imagine what it would be like if it was sunny out. Also, I wouldn't classify this as a "Hard" hike but instead a more moderate hike even though there is some distance.

Wonderful trail. Starts off with an incline. Didn't make it past a couple miles due to lack of snow equipment. Can see this being a great snowshoe trail too! Can't wait till the snow melts more and I can do the whole thing

As a guest in Denver I was allowed to visit Bailey and the party I was with suggested this hike on February 13th as it was a gorgeous day, in the 60s for February. The trail had a lot of icy patches but nothing too difficult. The trail is mostly gravel which is great for winter hiking-no muddy spots or standing water areas. The trail had great traction for the most part. About 2mi in there was a water crossing but it was frozen. Because it was getting late we didn't make it to the wilderness box but I plan to return and do the entire loop in the summer. The aspens are beautiful along with the rock cliffs as some of the natural scenery I saw.

Definitely a great hike, but bring water as it is dry right now and I noticed we were at 8100' which tends to create much evaporation. Additionally, not much traffic on it, so a great hike without a lot of people.

Great hike. Made it about 4 miles in before turning around due to snow drifts in the trail around 10k ft.
