This is more of a place to work out than to hike. I do it several times a week and it is a good workout to run up the stairs and down the trail.
It was easy at only 200 steps, every 10th step is marked and the trail down was great. Some loose gravel but the trails have markers so you stay on track and find your way. A great morning or afternoon activity.
200 stairs on incline. Steps are man made, smooth, and even. Either return down stairs or follow trail down. Good practice for Manitou.
It is a great hike for the family. Stairs 200 up the hill and trial back down. It took about 1 hour.
This trail is addicting!!! I great workout.
Feel the burn! A couple laps around Challenge Hill will certainly roast your quads, great workout. Great view of Castle Rock over the other side.
