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.
