trail locations for Littleton, Colorado

Location is nice, close to Denver, and the red rock formations are beautiful. This hike has a false summit that could be a great turn around location if you're feeling done. I've hiked here in summer and winter -- details and recommendations found here: https://goo.gl/QCFwh9

Nice good workout. Maintained well

No trail once you get to the part where you get off the road

It's like a dog party! Easy path to run or walk around.

Great Beautiful hike!!

Most of the trail is paved and I thought you needed a guest pass/membership to go back here. Anyway the plants are beautiful. It's a level walk.

I did this hike today and only did the first loop which was 2.5 miles. Some places were steep and rocky but it was a fun hike. I'll definitely go back. Also there is a parking lot and it's easy to find.

I've gone here a few times and have seen a lot of wildlife including coyotes and a rattlesnake! The rocks are gorgeous and the trail is dirt. It's wide in some places and narrow in others. There's a parking lot and it's easy to find.

There are many different ways to go, so having this/a map is a good idea. Elevation is not too bad, if you want to make this hike 3-15 miles long, it's for everyone. A bit hard for mountain biking for my liking, might have to walk the bike a bit, yet I'm a beginner. Saw 2 rangers so keep your dog on a leash. Nice views of the city and beyond. Barely any shade, would recommend in spring or fall. No water access. Bathrooms at trail head.

Great fall hike close to Denver

A nice wide, well maintained trail that we had no issues taking a baby jogger stroller on. Beautiful rock formations. Much is not shaded so I recommend going early in the day or go on a cool day and remember a hat and sunscreen so you can really enjoy it to the fullest.

Really beautiful

A nice close front range hike

Great casual hike with moderate challenge. Beautiful way to spend a Colorado afternoon.
