I'd say a bit less than a moderate hike as long as you beat the midday Sun. Great hike with good views of Golden, Lookout Mountain, Green Mountain and North Table Mountain.
Excellent and challenging; the return on the loop required tip toeing along boulders aka superb. Plenty of dogs on leashes, so if a dog can do it...plenty of traffic, great view of hang gliders, a must for city dwellers needing a worthy challenge
I enjoyed this hike because it was easily accessible (it can get crowded on weekends) and I enjoyed the ridge walking. Plenty of cool photo opportunities, but watch your step!
easy quick hike. plenty of parking. trail was pretty crowded
Great! No one was there, which I love and it was beautiful and close! My dog loved it also
great views for sunrise and of golden
Nice easy hike. Good views of Golden through the mountains and it's right outside the city.
Easy, gradual incline. Nice views. Don't do after late morning in summer. Perfect spring hike.

Nice little trek for the dog and I; easy terrain for those "light" days with rewarding views!
Red clay terrain makes air very dry so bring extra water on hot days..
It was great! Not really suitable for some dogs. It was fun going down. It was pretty steep. The only things I didn't like about it were very limited parking space and not too much of shades.
Good hike with beautiful views. A little rocky at parts but path was relatively clear and easy to navigate. Good option to bring your dog although trail can be a bit narrow at points
Beautiful trail that was a bit tougher than I imagined going in.
The trail can be quite narrow and steep at times but it's all worth the view.
Bathrooms at trail head.
There's a really cool point about 3/4 of the way into the loop if you start if from the right side where you can climb a big rock formation. It is windy and refreshing and offers a gorgeous view.
This is a nice, moderately challenging hike. Parking at the trailhead is limited (I would guess ten to twelve spots). If you come late on the weekends, expect to park on the road shoulder and hike a bit to the trailhead. There are restrooms at the trailhead. The trail is fairly narrow and peppered with many spots that have loose rubble. I wouldn't say you need to climb hands and feet, but there are definitely a few spots where you'll want to reach for a rock, or tree limb to balance. The views of the City of Golden in the valley between north and south Table Mountain make the effort worthwhile. There is evidence of recent fire on the south an west side of the summit. This could be difficult for some dogs - be sure to bring water as there are no natural sources once you leave the trailhead.
