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.

Today was a great day to go hiking there. Beautiful hiking, tough to get up for short time then walked around til the view spot....now that was worth it. Beautiful view southwest part of the mountains. Will return back for sure! We hiked on Eagleview trail with mix of Oxen and Roast. A must hike would be Eagleview in order to see the beautiful view

Well-maintained trail with a steady, steep
ascent. Great mix of sun and shade; lots of wildflowers. Beautiful peak views from the top of Eagle's Nest trail. The picnic areas and bathrooms are very clean, and there is plenty of parking.

Great hike! Eagle View loop had gorgeous views. Took my three kids 7, 11, and 13 and they managed it pretty well! Definitely will do it again!

Moderate out-n-back day hike. Great views of the mountain ranges, wildlife and the North Fork of the South Platte River. Trail is easy to follow and multiple signs keep you confident you're on the right track.

Beautiful hike! Especially if you tie in Eagle View Loop! You come around the corner at the top and get a great view including Pikes Peak in the distance! We decided to make that our view while we took a small break to eat our snacks. Plenty of wildflowers and small animals to see, along with several stream crossings that can refresh your dog if you choose to bring them.

I did this hike beginning from Waterton Canyon. While the first 6 miles is a bit bland along the dirt access road, the canyon is beautiful. Towards the top of the road just before it breaks off through the woods, a large herd of sheep approached me and fed on the nearby grasses.

My favorite part of this hike is around the halfway point where I found myself immersed in a fern forest. It was a bit claustrophobic as it felt like the forest was swallowing me, but it is unlike anything I've witnessed in Colorado. It reminded me of the dense forests of Oregon.

It's one of my favorite local hikes. If you want some pretty views, head up Eagles View Trail. You'll see the views at .5 miles. Then you can continue around and descend down the loop back to the parking lot. It adds about another mile to the hole.

Moderate hike with significant elevation gain right out of the parking lot. Can also be accessed from Waterton Canyon where you connect to the Colorado Trail 6 miles in, passed Strontia Springs Dam. Amazing views of the practically the entire South Platte Area. This section of the trail gets significantly less traffic than the South Platte to Little Scraggy Trailhead, and has better scenery.

hummingbird is quite a steep start, first .8 miles are uphill. very worth it for the view once you get to the top! hiked it on 3/12 no snow on the trail, also not much shade on the first part

Great hike, enjoyed the hills and view. Not very long, but worth it!
