If going in the winter, be sure to bring spikes! Very slippery but otherwise a great hike. Will definitely do again!
Walked up off-trail the back way. Great views !
We did a loop; went up the Gregory Canyon trail, then took Ranger down. The hike up Gregory Canyon gave us a run for our money; definitely got our workout in. There was scrambling at some places which was fun. Overall good views of Boulder; but pretty busy. We went on a Sunday afternoon; going in the morning would probably be best.
Great hike, mix of difficult and easy parts with some scrambling. Was very quite through most of the trail and not very busy. Great views of Long's peak and the city of Boulder.
Great on cloudy days. But storms come in fast so watch for them. Some water in the creek. Busy on holidays. Wear footwear that doesn't slip because you are frequently walking on rocks.
