Very short. It's ok.
This was beautiful! The trees are starting to turn colors and we saw a black bear! Very cool hime and great for a family!
Amazing hike, go to red rocks spur trail!
very easy and non crowded hike. not a fan of the city views but the backside has good views.
Simple family/dog friendly trail. Went on Labor Day weekend though so parking was more difficult. Fun little trip though.
Great short hike close to Boulder. Would definitely do this trail again if I'm short on time. Not very busy at all on a Thursday afternoon, which is a nice change for Boulder. The rock formations were beautiful and fun to climb.
Awesome hike and once you make it to the top you get to see the city of Boulder
very short drive from Boulder, the rocks are fun to climb, with a great view of the Flatirons and the city
This is a cool area but don't try to follow this route, part of it is closed and very difficult to walk on due to the loose gravel.
Scenic hike but nothing special. It's local and easy. Decent place to walk your dog, but remember to pick up whatever they may leave behind-- I nearly stepped in a fresh pile of nastiness.
Easy hike close to town. Empty trail but still very pleasant with lots of snow on the ground. Nice views.
Awesome view of the front range if you take anemone trail. Took my family of 5, had a great adventure! (3 kids aged 8 to 11)
Has 5-star quality, but too busy...
The views of Boulder are very nice! A little confusing with all of its side trails and it was a fairly crowded hike. Still a nice one!
Easy & close to town. Great trail for date night!
Great views of the Boulder red rocks! And a fun combination of hiking and rock climbing. Once I was finished with this trail, I spent another hour on the nearby Anemone Trail. Easy to moderate at places. Overall, I really enjoyed it and would go again!
Nice trail. Pretty views. Climbing the red rocks was fun.
Love it. Climgbing up the rocks is great. Used to go to it everyday after school and I live about forty five minutes away.
