It's a short hike-perfect for the early morning. Getting to the top might feel a little tough, but the view is definitely worth it!

Love this trail, I come here after work several nights a week, great work out but short enough and close enough to town to get back before it's too late. I wouldn't recommend bringing kids or dogs here as you are almost guaranteed to see rattlesnakes, usually right on the trail. Be careful and watch where you walk.

Suuuuper cool Mesozoic rocks and formations out there for all you geology nerds. I saw lots of prairie dogs, some meadowlarks, spotted towees, rabbits, and heard several more creatures. A rattlesnake ended up crossing my path on the way back down, so watch out for those guys! Not a great barefoot hike though, lots of large gravel on the trail. All in all, beautiful hike! ⛰

You will pretty much always see Mule Deer here after 4pm. one of my first places I hiked when I move to CO. Helps me remember how far I have come. love this place.

Lots of wildlife and flowers. Saw rabbits, prairie dogs, western hognose snake (twice--nonvenomous) and more. First 1/1.5 miles is easy on a wide, well maintained 4x4 road out to a cabin/bathroom. After that it gets more moderate until you reach the top of the ridge. Surprisingly uncrowded for a Sunday afternoon with beautiful weather. No coverage from the sun, except the cabin.

It was awesome! Not too difficult but challenging enough to get a good work out. The scenery and wildlife were definitely a plus.
