The Dakota Ridge side was ok. It was not as remote as I like with views of freeways and car noise. The trail was rugged but not a terrible hike. The Red Rocks trail was better with more people but better views. I would probably do an out and back on the Red Rocks trail if I did this hike again.

Dakota ridge part very technical. Red rocks great steady trail running.

Want a work out with enough flat land to catch your breath? This is it!

Awesome hike with great views, perfect length on an awesome weekend

very technical rocks and drops ... some spots ride real close to the edge be cautious of dropoffs and line choice when at high speeds.

This puppy is steep in places but a worthy challenge with surroundings inviting enough to encourage deviation from the marked trails. A quick hike. The trail adjacent to it was heavily trafficked, but a brisk, steep climb. Beware lack of cover means heavy sun exposure near midday. No rattlesnakes observed in early August
