This is a great trail except for all of the dog poop along the trail.
I hiked this trail several years ago in summer and enjoyed the dry heat of Colorado opposed to the humidity in New England. The hike offered lovely views, a manageable terrain and a cool waterfall. We were with friends and young kids so this is a definitely a family-friendly trek.
