BEAUTIFUL. It's marked as strenuous by the park itself, but this site has the rating correct. It's moderate. Fantastic views, great weather, and everything.

Beautiful winter hike! It's rated as strenuous at the park but I would definitely call it moderate if you are in okay shape. Beautiful views with the snow on the red rocks.

Location is nice, close to Denver, and the red rock formations are beautiful. This hike has a false summit that could be a great turn around location if you're feeling done. I've hiked here in summer and winter -- details and recommendations found here: https://goo.gl/QCFwh9
