Beautiful trail and well maintained. Gradual steep climbs and elevation gain but views are amazing up top.

Absolutely loved this hike. Was the perfect Pre-Thanksgiving feast workout. Views were wonderful and trail was easy to navigate.

First of all, I would not classify this as "light" traffic. Crossed paths with people coming and going constantly. Maybe on a weekday but on the weekend there was nowhere to park in the afternoon, had to walk up the pavement from the Helen hunts lot, then another mile or two just to get to the trail head. This is a hugely popular spot, get there super early or wait til early evening. The trail itself I would classify as easy-moderate but I'm a native. My wife from out east was sucking air the whole way up and would probably classify it as super-hard. Probably one of the better hikes so close to the city but be prepared for a steep climb and a pre-hike before getting to the trail head down gold camp road. Leave the kids at home for this one.

Nice trail, esp. with kids. Great for starting out hiking, getting in shape.

This is great for a quick hike. I've even left work on an afternoon in summer and gone up/back in around two hrs. Very convenient access, although parking crowds up on weekends in summer. Be careful on the rocks of the upper part, esp. with kids, it can be slippery on way down.

Love this for a quick/moderate-length hike. Make sure you go to the summit of Buckhorn and see the giant boulder. It's amazing!

Great trail, esp. for a quick hike. You don't have to worry about scree fields like above Seven Bridges/622. Safer for young kids, but watch out for bikers.

Great views! If you do out/back on same path it's continuous grade. If you do the loop described it will be more variability.

Great trail. Beautiful views and calm walk along the creek. Enjoy this trail, had some excellent snowshoeing on it too!

Good! I've done this trail dozens of times, very picturesque. Once you start climbing and get away from dog droppings on the access road it gets much better. Need to be careful on the way back down if it's icy.

Another nice trail in North Cheyenne Canyon Park. I parked at the lot near the Discovery Center, plenty of parking on a Wednesday. I planned to hike the lower and middle sections of this trail and then head back, but I found no sign showing the start of the upper section. I ended up hiking the whole trail in an hour and a half(one-way). That was at a fast pace, so may take longer. With daylight getting scarce, I decide to just walk down the road back to my car, knowing that the last half of the return hike would be totally dark. Near the parking area to of Mt. Cutler I started talking with a nice guy, and he offered to drive me back down to my car. Nice hike, great people.
