Good hike! Some views on the hike up. The dogs loved the hike too! Bring yak tracks further into the winter.

I went from Elk to Oxen to Eagle's View, and returned via Ravens Roost. I think the round trip was closer to 5 miles than 4.4 (I calculated it to be 4.9 miles.) I agree with the review stating trail was easy enough, because it is well marked, wide enough and has a decent surface of gravel, dirt, pine needles ( a little bit of snow frosting the trees and path in some places very pretty).
I also agree it's challenging enough because it consistently inclines (steeper in some places than others), but the effort is worth it when you get to the top of Eagle's View - The mountain panorama is gorgeous.

Great fairly easy hike. I went from Elk to Oxen to this trail then took ravens roost to elk again on the way out. Nice views at the top, only saw one other person in the last mile back to the car.

Trail was appropriately rated, not too tough but challenging enough to get you breathing heavy. Great panoramic view makes for a great spot for photography, few good benches along trail and bbq spot near parking lot. Not too busy on a weekday and very convenient to do.

good hike. simple and pretty

it was a good hike. nice and pretty, pretty simple.

Nice warmup for Elbert next weekend. Only two people on the trail.

Nice wooded hike but you can hear the traffic from the highway on the entire walk.

great trail! nice easy ride, 4 miles go's to quick, so i rode it 2 more times.

Very enjoyable hike today. My nephew from Florida was with us he also enjoyed. Probably would've been nice two weeks ago with all the colors.

There are numerous hikes here so you have options depending on what you want to see and what you're up for. $7 entrance fee, they provide a map, we saw numerous staff offering assistance and NO DOG POOP/BAGS along the trail!

We hiked up to a few scenic viewpoints then to the Old Mill then down the trail to the Old Mill. Strenuous and further than we'd planned but pretty. Lots of mountain bikers and a few horses but everyone was courteous and shared the trail.

Pretty easy hike but a lot of dog poop on the trail. Why can't people pick up after their pooch?

Really pretty trial and eagle view at the top was totally worth it. It was moderately strenuous. Love the town of Conifer too!
