Courtney P. on Alderfer Three Sisters Trail
Definitely an easy hike but there are many trails to explore so you can make your hike as long or short as you want. No stellar views but it's a nice place to get out, experience nature, and disconnect. I saw a lot of wildlife - bring your binoculars! This would be a great place to bring family from out of town/first-time hikers.
I'd consider this hike to be easy. I saw a few small children on the trails, so if they can do it, then you certainly can. The views at the top of the brother were great. This hike was mostly shaded. so I imagine it'd be good for the summertime. A lot of mountain bikers, but all were courteous. Overall, I'd recommend this for a short morning hike.
No snow on the trails yet! (as of 11/13/16)
Pretty hike, easy peaceful, not a lot of traffic early morning. Times the trail is like a dirt road but it's all through the woods and there is one short meadow crossing, definitely easy with some minor inclines to increase the workout. I did the Hidden Fawn Trail to the right and up around to Mountain Muhly Trail and back down to the East Trailhead, 8.1 miles so I was only on Sisters Trail a short time.. Next time will take Sisters Trail around south of Buffalo Park Road.
Pretty hike but not jaw dropping. There were lots of different trails to take to make your hike as long or as short as you'd like. The maps provided at the trail head were great. Trail signs were good and easy to find. The three sisters trail at the north end wasn't as well marked but we found our way. We hiked 4.65 miles in just under 2 hours, with a few stops to climb some boulders and take pictures. We hiked on a week day and it felt like there were only a handful of people in the entire park. Watch out for the horse poop!
A bit less scenic than I was hoping for. The easy rating is definitely accurate, I did a little trail running to get my heart rate up. Cant complain though since I was looking for something more "local" from Denver. There are a bunch of trails that give you the option to lengthen or shorten your hike and maps provided at the trail head that were very helpful with all the trail connectors.
Loved this hike. Started from the east trailhead and did the loop which made it more like 5-6 miles. It was a steady climb but well maintained, and the mostly shaded trail were very pleasant. The many views from the top as you make the circuit around the summit are awesome. There are several places at the top to sit and enjoy a snack and take it all in. Definitely on my list to do again!
