Great trail if you're looking for some good outdoor exercise but don't have a lot of time. 1.7 miles to the summit, basically all uphill.

Love this hike! It's one of my favorites when I want to go for a local hike near Fort Collins. Nice easy trail with spectacular views! Would recommend boot traction cleats for this time of year.

Climbing around the rock is fun, the hike has its moments as well. Can get busy on days with nice weather.

Fun hike except we went on a busy day. Would like to hike it again without the busy day. Great hike with beautiful view. 1st part of hike gentle incline up to 1st major viewpoint. Last section of hike little more incline. Last 100yds or so much steeper but view is really great on top.

This was my first "real" hike in the area. Nice scenery along the way with a great view of the reservoir and Fort Collins at the top. Might be somewhat challenging on the way up depending on fitness level but overall a pretty comfortable hike. There's a few different rock formations after the scramble to the top. Go to the right for the best views.

This is one of those basic hikes which should really make someone curious about hiking. The total 3.7 mile round-trip distance can be covered in under 1hr 30min with generous time at the top. The views from the top are decent. An extremely easy 5 min scramble at the end with pretty average trail throughout. Over all this is a very easy hike suitable for evening stroll. The park closes at 9pm so venturing for the hike after 7.00 pm should be slightly unwise given that you won't make it till 9.00.
