We arrived at the trailhead at 9am(Buck Creek parking lot, walked left up HWY 410 for a short way and spotted trail across the HWY.) We were the first ones and the only ones on the trail the whole way up and down.
Could the lack of water falls, alpine lakes, plentiful wild flowers keep the crowds away. If so, how nice.
The trail is in great condition. No blow-downs, no mud, no water,no bugs, very few rocks or roots to trip over. Just an easy grade up, with some switch backs.
A nice, uncomplicated walk in the woods with a view at the top. I am sure it is even better on a perfectly clear day, but the sun made an appearance and there was some clearing.
This trail is not far from Snoquera falls and it looks like a loop hike can be made connecting these two trails if a waterfall is a must. I will have to save that for another day when I have more time.
