I left Colorado Springs the night before and drove to the Radio Towers. The 4WD road is in great shape, but go slow. It was a busy day on Princeton and I'm guessing it's only getting busier. I suggest driving there the night before or getting there extremely early.
View of the road above the radio towers.
Coming around a bend in the road, there is a "bench" of stone as Princeton appears.
As you make the last turn on the road, you can see the slope of the ridge and the steps up to the Trail.
After coming up the slope, the trail becomes mostly talus. Here is where the trail turns up to the ridge. There is a wall of rocks stopping you from taking the old trail.

A busy day on Princeton. I started on the trail at 6:00am and summited by a little after 9:00am. It was a beautiful day with almost no clouds. I stayed on top for about 45 mintues and made it back to the towers by noon.
One concern - there were a ton of people starting their hike as I was finishing. The forecast was good for the day, but you never know.
