fun short hike.

Lots of trail options, great sites and wildlife. Beautiful in all seasons. Can be crowded but less so early morning.

Nice adjustable length and difficulty trail. When I went with my dog, we encountered other leashed dogs and good owners. The bike riders were also very aware and respectful.

Next to the highway, really loud.

This hike/walk is in a residential neighborhood and borders a wastewater treatment facility.... Would not go out of my way to partake in again. Maybe nice for the neighborhood folks, but walking alongside the stench of sewage in the beginning of the hike was less than appealing.

Wonderful quick hike with surprising natural features.

Not difficult. Different type of hike, as you are along the cliff face almost the a quarter of the time.

Great trails. You can make it as long or as short as you like. Beautiful mountain vistas close to an urban setting. Will hike this trail often especially due to its close proximity to Castle Rock.

Amazing views of the canyon from above! Well shaded. Easy-moderate trail depending on the loop with a variety of different features: canyon, cliffs, plains, rock overhangs. The sedimentary rock (plus the distraction of the views) can make it a little more likely to twist an ankle so I'd suggest wearing hiking boots over sneakers.

Very scenic and moderately challenging.
