I hiked this trail several years ago in summer and enjoyed the dry heat of Colorado opposed to the humidity in New England. The hike offered lovely views, a manageable terrain and a cool waterfall. We were with friends and young kids so this is a definitely a family-friendly trek.

Great hike! Difficult!

The hike was good and the trail was not busy. Got to the falls and was disappointed that the water was all gone. Still very pretty though.

Fun easy trail, nice views on top

Loved the trail and the view. I hiked it but I think a mountain bike is more the idea on this one.

Nice trail to the falls!!

Great hike on a beautiful day. 5.25 miles round trip. We went up the south ridge multipurpose trail to the top and down the hiking only trail. I think the south ridge trail is a little more steady and slightly shorter. If doing the loop again I'd reverse by taking the hiking only trail up and south ridge down. Should be easier on joints that way.

Was a Saturday morning hike and we met lots of people on the trail. Top 100 feet is a bit of a scramble up the rock. Steep on both sides so someone that is scared of heights might not do so well.

I did horsetooth falls, it was really scenic and grand.

Watch for snakes! Beautiful hike

1st time, an adventure for us, not moderate unless you are accustomed to hiking at such inclines and elevation. Stay hydrated. Lots of steep inclines, loose rock/gravel to be aware of so you don't slip and fall or twist and ankle, hiking boots are appropriate for this hike. Worth it when you get to the top!

Nice, well marked trail. Bring water for your dog as well as self, none along trail except at Livestock water.

Good shoulder season hike. It gets hot in the summer and there are better hikes further west.
