The parking area at the trailhead is large but fills very early because it also serves the Longs Peak trail. Not far from the summit, the trail becomes indistinct but is marked by cairns. The final approach to the summit requires a short steep rock climb. Use caution here, although there are plenty of handholds and footholds. Great views in all directions including Longs Peak, Twin Sisters, the Mummy Range, Estes Park and the peaks that make up the Continental Divide.
