I hiked this trail a few days ago. it was very scenic and easier then I thought. A very good trail for beginners.

Absolutely beautiful trail. The views from the top are breathtaking. Very easy hike to show out of towners the best Colorado has to offer !

Tourist spot, not a good place for a secluded nature hike. But it's very short and there are plenty of ponderosa pines to smell. Plus, the views at the top are pretty nice.

This trail is blocked by fences with posted "Danger - no trespassing" signs

Nice, short trail with great views. Only reason I'm not giving it a 5 is because of the irresponsible dog owners leaving gifts along the path.

short hike, lots of stairs but a beautiful view. I suggest not going on weekend when it's crowded. actually it's better to go to Cheyenne Cañon on weekdays rather than weekends. gorgeous place to visit.

I went with my kids and with friends and their dogs and it was great. Very easy to keep track of the kids and the dogs.

Great hike with beautiful views! Relatively short and very easy to access right off the road.

First time hiking and it was amazing! I’m from NY and I must say I love the mountains

The rating on this trail has been adjusted to easy. When comparing the rating of other moderates in the area, a .7 nicely built tourist trail doesnt compare to the 8+ mile round trip trails up mountains with cliff edge rocky paths. I am not putting down this BEAUTIFUL 5 star trail, however, I just wanted to adjust the difficulty level to keep it consistent with the Colorado Springs area.

Easy hike with a lot of stairs. Good for kids, but you may need to carry them some if they’re young. Great views from multiple points along the hike.

This was a pretty easy hike! If you go in the winter or early spring, take spikes if you have them. We went two weeks ago and it was still iced over in spots. We did fine without but I’ll take them next time! Easy trail with gorgeous views!

I give this a 5 because it is close to my house in Fountain. There are parts you can walk dogs just not by the nature center. Nice flat trail easy to walk on. You can view ducks and geese in the waters.

Short, easy trail with awesome views! Wish I would’ve had clamps for the beginning part but it wasn’t necessary. Love this trail!

It was a very pretty and short hike. Lots of places to take pretty photos

A nice place to go for a walk.. not a long walk.. but a good walk up the steps and down them.

I have hiked and birded at this park for years and it is always pleasant. Most of the flood damage from a few years ago has been repaired, but not down at the Hansen Nature area. This is a popular area for the 719rocks folks and there are some geocaches here too. Fishing at Willow Springs Ponds, a nature center, playgrounds and pavillions and now community gardens are in the works. A nice way to spend a few hours in a riparian habitat - a change of pace from the usual Colorado mountain trails.

This was a fun and pretty easy trail with numerous views along the way! I would definitely do this trail again. A little bit of snow and ice but with my spikes on my boots, easy to do and no snow toward the top!

However be careful about leaving any valuables in your car. My husband and I came back to the trailhead and a group of hikers had their car broken into and a purse/wallet stolen. It was a late afternoon on a Friday but still light out.

Easy trail and lots of wildlife out when it’s warm. It’s a great trail to go on if you have kids. My toddler loves it.

lovely trail, not too difficult. There was some snow and ice when I hiked it; trekking poles helped me balance on the icy bits but were not necessary, as my husband did fine without any. Great views at the top, I definitely recommend it.

I love that this is near water. It was peaceful and close by!

Great trail! When you get to the peak of the mountain and still have strength, you’ve got the trail up to Mount Muscoco if you turn left at the fork instead of right. There is also a cave-like opening about half way up the trail to Cutler, it only goes about 4 feet in but it’s still a good place to take a photo.

there's a lookout with a rock wall where they have park benches to enjoy the view. During the winter months you can see people ice climbing up the falls.

lots of stairs but great views of the falls. Easy trail for families

This is a great beginner course but not much for the best scenery considering where in Colorado

A nice hike overlooking the city and the canyon. There was snow on the trail, and an easy hike.

A good warm-up for more experienced hikers, or a good first hike for beginners. During warmer months, and especially weekends, the lower portion (Helen Hunt falls) can get fairly crowded.

Super easy hike. Lots of stairs, we came in January & the water fall was frozen. Looks like this hike would be better for the summer!
