GREAT easy hike!
it was long and vety hott not much shade wear shorts
It uses the same trail as Red Rocks and Morrison Slide Trails with an extra mile of trail halfway. I felt the extra trail wasn't worth it. But everything else was great!
Nice but easy and too near the road and traffic
is a great trail very busy and lots of dogs. much nicer than green mountain because there are way less bikers on the trail. Most of the users are respectful and share the train.
The trail was easy to find from the Lower North Lot. We added the Village Walk trail to our hike and added 1.36 miles total. It was pretty icy and snowy, so even if its warm (it was in the 60s today) I'd recommend bringing traction devices - especially if its snowed the week you're going. (The north sides of the mountains don't get much sunlight so the backside of the Morrison Slide trail is completely snow covered right now). We started at 8:30 am and only saw a handful of people. On our way back there were significantly more people, so try and get there early!
Very crowded on a Saturday, very narrow trail, on the shorter side, views are nothing to write home about. I'd rather drive further into the mountains for something less crowded and more remote.
Short 7am chili hike, 18 degrees. NO one on the trail but me and 2 runners. Will go back to find the cemetery. Did the village walk, ride and Red rocks trail.
Started at Village Walk, then Morrison Slide and looped back. Also connects to Red Rocks Trail. On a cool, fall day, this trail is awesome! It's mostly open and offers great views. Highway noise it's heard for most till you get to the Red Rocks TH. Some rocky places on the Slide, but no boulders. Definitely go again. Oct 2015
Plus side: Well-worthwhile, gorgeous views over the city. Downside: not much shade. Gets pretty toasty on a hot day.
Pretty easy, nicely groomed trail. Seems like wary is better - it was busy on the way out at 8am.
Road seems to be closed by an electric gate. can't get in.
Good one for kids and dog. Flowers along the way.
Easy to Moderate hike, walk through where a town once was, there are a few grave sites left that's about it, nice open meadows, close to Morrison. The trail brushes the Red Rocks area on the south side of the loop.
I completed this round-trip hike (Village Walk-Morrison Slide Trail-Red Rocks Trail) a few days after a heavy snow fall. I packed my Yak-Trax and trekking poles along and had to use them only in the areas where the shadows remained. I would recommend having them both if you plan to go in the winter, especially for the Morrison Slide Trail. Overall, these trails are fairly easy for the average hiker, although the length and the exposure to the ridge rim at the top might limit small children. The views are beautiful and well worth the time spent hiking the switchbacks.
