    Easy to moderate hike, but very busy trail so took a little longer than anticipated. Beautiful views and even saw a moose on the way up. Beautiful sunny September day, majority of the hike was warm, but it was extremely windy up at Blue Lake which made it very chilly and I was glad I brought a couple thin layers and a ski hat to keep me warm up there.

    Great hike. Considering the crowds in the park this trail had very little traffic. It's a fairly easy hike. There are a few places where the views to the east are good and once you get to the lake the mountain views are excellent.

    Very beautiful hike all along the trail to the lake. The nearby Booth, Pitkin and Deluge Lake hikes are all equally beautiful.

    TUES 8/20/19> Starting hiking at 2:15am. about 20 cars there. First 6 miles is a nice hike (about 3000ft gain). Then the fun begins at the Boulderfield! It is real climbing from there. Slow and steady. Watch each foot placement and hand hold. Take your time and enjoy the rest of the way up!

    Beautiful hike through a lush willow covered valley with a small stream crossing (was able to stay dry by rock hopping across). The terrain is easy to navigate and seasoned hikers won’t fine this to be challenging. The most challenging part of this hike is the altitude and last 50 vertical feet to the summit on rocky terrain. This is a hike you want to do early in the morning in order to beat the crowds and afternoon storms.

    The wildflowers were spectacular for this hike, one of the top wildflower hikes in Boulder County. The mountain scenery views are awesome and Lake Dorothy is a magical place.

    Very windy above treeline. Needed my smartwool layer the entire time. Beautiful views all around. The first mile is probably the most difficult. Once you get over the first hill of switchbacks, its gentle up and down. Stanley mountain doesn't have a sign, but there is a rock pile and pole on top of it to the left of the trail.

    Summited Longs Peak via the Keyhole route on July 20, 2019. Route was in great shape, the trough was snowy in the middle, but easy enough to scramble around to the left side going up. The homestretch was totally clear, except for a few, easy to avoid wet patches. Started hiking at 215AM and got back to the car at 1245 PM!

    Spectacular hike to Pear Lake, 7/13/19. Only a couple snowfields left that we’re right before Pear Lake and we’re easily navigable w/out snowshoes. Lots of moose tracks, but no moose. We did see a really pretty golden colored Fox w/ black feet at Pear Lake. One thing to note, while it’s totally possible to make this hike from the Allenspark TH, their is no parking lot there anymore. Looks like someone has shut it down to the public, so we left from Finch Lake TH in Wild Basin of RMNP instead.

    Challenging for inexperienced hikers, from the very onset of the hike it is uphill and strenuous. Once you hit the meadow there is a bit of a break from the constant uphill climb, however it does pick back up. After you completely pass the meadow you will reach a fairly large area that has been burned by a forest fire. The final stretch to granite falls is completely uphill with very rocky terrain. The falls were beautiful, that was where my hike ended. It took my wife and I about 2.5 hours there, and about 1.5 back. We stopped occasionally along the way there, didn’t stop on the way back.

    Beautiful views and not too difficult of a hike with the grade being not too steep.

    Jun9-19, About 2/3 was snow covered with a mix of walking small steps on top to post holing up to waist due to sun and softness of snow.

    Beautiful views, took my daughter up for her first winter backpacking trip. Snows got deep about the last half mile, probably would have been fine with snow shoes, but we were stuck with boots. Great camp location, quiet, peaceful, and super close to lakes and meadows for day hikes.

    As of April 7, 2019, still completely snow covered (packed snow) and required yak trax. A few areas was just starting to melt (and refreeze). Very easy uphill over about 1.8 miles to get to the Firetower, with great views around, especially to the SW of Mt. Evans and Mt. Evans Wilderness

    We hiked this trail in sunny and warm winter day. It was my second hike in snowshoes after 10 years break. We enjoyed well packed snow with no ice. First section up to the Rogers Pass trail fork could be easily hiked without snowshoes, while upper part provided very interesting experience on some more steep sections, especially on the way down.

    The first half mile has continual traffic noise from nearby I-70. After that it is a very pretty trail.

    I have done this hike in the summer, but just did it in mid-October and you should know that the parking lot at the trailhead is already closed for winter which adds and extra two miles RT to the hike. Also, it just took one snowfall to make the trail very icy about 30-50% of the way. Be prepared for winter hiking conditions!

    I'm a photographer and hike this 6 mile loop every fall, and sometimes in the spring also. Here is an uploaded photo gallery from fall 2017: http://tfmorrow.com/photoalbums/RMNP-WildBasin2017/ I just did this loop again a few days ago, and focused on waterfall photography; it will probably take me a few weeks to get those photos uploaded and linked on my website: http://tfmorrow.com/ This is a beautiful trail loop, especially in September. Hiking pace is rather slow because I'm constantly stopping to take photos; waterfall photos take even more time because a tripod is required.

    This is a great through hike. We started in Frisco and caught the free Summit Stage bus to Copper Mountain. The hike starts there and you hike back to Frisco over Uneva Pass and through some nice high country. Very nice trail. Some fall aspen colors at the beginning and end of the hike. The hike ended up being a total of nearly 14 miles. So it can be a longer day.

    My 61-year-old father and I backpacked up to Crater Lake, staying Friday and Saturday nights. Beautiful scenery, a little crowded, especially on Friday evening. The final mile up to Crater Lake is quite a climb! We, like seemingly everyone else, had an easy time catching fish. After a fish taco lunch, I wiled away Saturday reading and ducking under trees for shelter from the sprinkling rain, while my dad snoozed in the tent. We started out intending to go up to Heart Lake via this route, but had a late start: https://www.gaiagps.com/hike/1425/rogers-pass-lake-via-rogers-pass-trail/.
