    Great hike! The summit was beautiful. Overall not as hard as some of the others in the area, but like most it gets really steep for the last 500 vertical feet.

    Tourists, do not underestimate the steady elevation gain of this hike. Be sure to start down by noon in August. Solo navigation of bouldering to summit takes patient scouting during summit fever rush to spot the next cairn. Do not proceed until you spot the next cairn, but half way up the boulder climb the tiny cairns move to the east face which can only be seen by following the brief (30 ft) dirt trail from the last cairn on the west face. Do not climb unless you are heading for a cairn. As Bunny states, do not start out on the east face.

    Uncrowded. Bur open the gate and park past it if the parking is full. Great snowshoe in the Winter.

    Excellent trail most of the way. However, finding the route on the ridge can be challenging as it is difficult to follow the trails in the rocks. Follow the cairns on the West side. Do not cross to the east side even though some misleading tracks lead in this direction. The distance and time associated this hike are grossly inaccurate. Distance is 15 km and 6 to 8 hours is more reasonable estimate of the time needed. Elevation gain is 1288 m.

    3 beautiful lakes! First 2 lakes are on trail, 3rd is a fairly easy class 2+ off trail route. The trail goes all the way to the far end of the 2nd Savage lake, and it would be easiest to ascend in that area where we descended. There are some cliff bands to work your way around but the lakes and waterfalls are worth the effort! The 3rd lake is just at tree line with sweeping views. Once again, the Holy Cross Wildnerness did not disappoint.

    There are some steep sections as you gain about 2300’ in 4 miles. The wildflowers were abundant and the scenery kept changing from dense foliage to piney to alpine, with a couple of beautiful meadows along the way. At the end, the drop into the lake was very steep. The lake was gorgeous, holding ice in late July, with trees on one side and rocks on the other. It looked like it would be a great place to camp!

    At end of trail, you can camp next to the South Platte River. Great spot for fishing, but can be a bit “crowded” during the day as many groups ride this trail. Good spot for star gazing at night.

    Saw the Bison herd on the way in, about 15 adults and calves. A good variety of wildflowers in bloom, yellows and purples.

    Super easy hike below the reservoir. The creek flow was perfect, fish everywhere, lots of stockers. Not too crowded, quite a few fire rings along the way, and great areas to hang a hammock. The flys were pretty aggressive at times, but fortunately they called it a night before we did. Overall, great hike and a great place to do an overnight.

    Started at 6:45 am at the 4wd trailhead and followed a beautiful recently repaired/constructed trail through aspen forest to the music of chirping birds. Crossed one short (100 ft) snow field at 12,000 ft just below tree line and a much longer one (1000 ft) from 13,600 to 13,800 ft.Took 4 hours to climb, arrived to meet 100 others who were equally joyful to have reached the summit.

    We rode horses on this loop. I would rate it as moderate difficulty. There are some nice vistas and plenty of shade. Lots of huge granite boulders but the trail itself wasn’t too rocky, but I would recommend shoes.

    July 1 2019 - tons of snow up there still. Gorgeous views of Arastra Gulch, Silver Lake Basin, Kendall Mountain, etc. Stopped at the first stream crossing due to thin snow bridge across it. Several downed trees covering the trail on the north side that we had to navigate.

    Easy hike to a beautiful alpine lake. Most of the elevation gain comes at the end of the hike. Our family did this in deep snow over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time! Luckily most of the trail had been broken, but still had some areas of post-holing (GAIA app was helpful as there were multiple trails in the snow). Ate lunch at the snow covered lake.

    Nice dry hike on 04/20/19. The trail had little change in elevation and was easy to walk. Much of the trail is exposed. There were a moderate number of people on the trail on a Saturday. The best views were at Chair Rocks.

    Climb up averages 31-35% incline that does get a bit steeper in sections. About 2/3 of the way up is the Barr Loop exit point that circles back down to the parking area and makes for a nice loop. The descent is much more leisurely at -7% to -15% grades. Total distance is 2.4 miles for the Barr Trail Loop. If you decide to continue to the top you've got another 1000 steps to climb with an average of additional 1 hour to reach the top. Signs stated that descent from the top was approx. 2 hours via trail. Descent on incline not recommended.

    My wife and I hiked Mt. Elbert on July 10th, 2018. Not being from the area, we got an early start at 5:20 AM after camping just down the road. The trail was clear and even in the dawn light headlamps were not needed. After breaking through the treeline, we started to slow as the altitude got to us. The trail is not as well marked in two locations where scrambling is necessary, so it was helpful to have the GPS. Once on the ridge, the trail levels out a little for the final approach to the summit. Overall, it was a great experience, and one of the best hikes I have ever completed.
