Linked it to prospector to gateway pass ... Gorgeous!

An easy hike to do with kids and end at the park. The views of the fountain are gorgeous but so are the views of the surrounding mountains. Nice seeing snow on some of the higher peaks right from the trail over the winter! This hike is one of my favorite to do with out of town visitors...

I think this trail should be rated moderate due to very numerous up and down portions,some of which Have loose rock Very little shade. Take water. It is a beautiful trail and there are some great quartz outcroppings

Better hike than expected. Combo of trail and concrete. Beautiful views of the town and fountain. Good quick workout. Recommend!

Just an incredible hike. So much to see and appreciate. Solid workout. Encountered a huge rattlesnake that was more afraid of us than we were of it. Highly recommend this trail. Can't wait to take it in with my mountain bike.

This is a fun family walk. It's all concrete but you can wander off it to the grass and gravel. Lots to watch, Ducks, birds, turtles, frisbee golfers, massive fountain at the top of every hour 9AM to 9PM with tons of people from all over the world present.

This hike has gorgeous views all around. The trail has many variations in the terrain as well. There are several steep climbs, some loose rocks and rocky slopes. My hiking poles came in handy for sure. Newer to the hiking scene since January of this year. My own personal opinion is this trail is moderate due to the steep hills. You must park outside the gated community and walk about a half mile thru the subdivision before getting to the trail head. There is a $2 honor system pay envelopes once you reach the trail head. Have plenty of water!!

easy,flat walk. very pretty. awesome to see the fountain going

Great alternative hike to the paved path around the lake.

Great trail with some serious steep incline hiking the last mile. Take plenty of water and take your time. The effort is worth the view!

I went on 1 Feb 17 and I saw three people total on the trail. Great trail to challenge yourself on!
