  • Way up high in the mountains with beautiful sights all around
  • Relatively short walk to the overlook. Beautiful view of the canyon
  • Beautiful views. We went when it was extremely windy. Great area to see marmot and elk. Nice hike, it was only rough due to weather conditions and altitude otherwise it was a paved trail.
  • Visited on a warm day in November. Take warnings about altitude sickness seriously! Yes. It can and probably will affect you. Scenery, especially the alpine area is beautiful. Seen prettier national parks.
  • Breathtaking view! However that may be due the lack of oxygen... All jokes aside, it's absolutely beautiful. I also enjoyed watching the thriving wildlife. Careful if you are sensitive to altitude sickness though. This is at about 12k feet and above tree line.
