    My son and I completed this trail yesterday. Started at 0430 at the trail head in Manitou Springs. This was the hardest trail I’ve done to date especially the last 3 miles but what a great accomplished feeling! In the downside there’s a detour at the summit due to construction on the new visitor center. This is the most BS part of the trip as when you summit you’re literally at the visitor center restricted by a fence. Instead of making a small corridor for the hikers they reroute you down to the highway and you have to walk another .8 of a mile back up to the summit. At that point we were exhausted and feeling a little frustrated toward the lack of consideration for the hikers! There wasn’t any construction activities even going on. Other than that it was an amazing hike and beautiful views at every turn. Thank you Great Spirits!
