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!

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
