    Awesome! Great views the entire way. Finished in 4.5 hours. Only ran into one other person the entire day,m on a weekend. A little bit of noise from the mine, but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment and the solitude more than made up for it.

    Very scenic trail, especially through the Alpine Tundra and higher elevations. The view at 13K feet is amazing!

    Great trail with medium difficulty. One bypass is a little more challenging. The lake and scenery at the top is incredible. It’s a “must ride” trial if you’re in the area. I’m in a fairly stock JKU Rubicon Recon and only kissed a few rocks on the more challenging by pass.

    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.

    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.

    Great snowshoe hike. Can be windy but very calm the day we went.

    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/.
