Directions from Broadway: Traveling north passed the University turn left on to Mapleton Avenue. The trailhead lies approximately seven blocks west of Broadway.
it was very steep but worth the views
Very rocky with the trail hard to find at some points. Would recommend taking a left to start the loop.
Classic Boulder hike = very crowded. But it's a classic for a reason! It's steep & definitely gets your heart rate up but it's totally worth it. You get great views of Boulder & neighboring towns from the top. I'd just avoid weekday nights & weekends, in general, if you don't want to be around too many other people.
