Overview

This is a difficult loop trail in Rocky Mountain National Park.

This trail goes by Tonahutu, Renegade, Timberline, and Cascade Falls.

Wonderful trail with many scenic views. You are likely to see many different types of wildlife such as moose, elk, bighorn sheep, and many more! The campsites are great, a few even have pit toilets available. There is plenty of water except above the treeline, so camel up before making the 7 mile stretch across the top of the montain.
