I went from Elk to Oxen to Eagle's View, and returned via Ravens Roost. I think the round trip was closer to 5 miles than 4.4 (I calculated it to be 4.9 miles.) I agree with the review stating trail was easy enough, because it is well marked, wide enough and has a decent surface of gravel, dirt, pine needles ( a little bit of snow frosting the trees and path in some places very pretty).
I also agree it's challenging enough because it consistently inclines (steeper in some places than others), but the effort is worth it when you get to the top of Eagle's View - The mountain panorama is gorgeous.

Great fairly easy hike. I went from Elk to Oxen to this trail then took ravens roost to elk again on the way out. Nice views at the top, only saw one other person in the last mile back to the car.

Trail was appropriately rated, not too tough but challenging enough to get you breathing heavy. Great panoramic view makes for a great spot for photography, few good benches along trail and bbq spot near parking lot. Not too busy on a weekday and very convenient to do.

Nice warmup for Elbert next weekend. Only two people on the trail.

Very enjoyable hike today. My nephew from Florida was with us he also enjoyed. Probably would've been nice two weeks ago with all the colors.

Really pretty trial and eagle view at the top was totally worth it. It was moderately strenuous. Love the town of Conifer too!

Trail was really well maintained, lots of parking, not too many people. Challenging in a fun way. Definitely go to Eagle's view; 180 degree views were stunning at top. Road is easy to navigate and it's easy to find.
