Real nice in the autumn. I'd rate this trail easy, it's a lot more flat trail than usual for the area. The dirt road in took me about 20 minutes in a truck. It seemed doable in a car as well, not much clearance needed.

Really unique rock formations. Coyote song is an easy trail, some inclines but nothing crazy. If you take the Lyons Back trail towards columbine trail it gets pretty steep. You can also go off path a lil and climb up to the ridge. Views were awesome, would not recommend the ridge climb to kids or anyone unsure of physical ability. Def go again, quick drive from Denver.

64F in October, had to check this place out! Arrived at 9am, I saw about 20 cars parked(3 parts of big parking lots, easily fit 120 cars) but ran into only 2 dog walkers and 2 fishers. Looks like most people were off to biking. 4 stars because I expected little better views. I have a feeling this place is packed in the summer. Have fun, my fellow hikers!

Great easy trail to bring sea level guests who enjoy walking and wildlife.

Beautiful trails. One of my favorite place in Littleton.

Nice little hike, pretty views!

Nice and fun! Close to Denver! It’s connected to a bunch of other trials too! Pretty easy and relaxed and you seem some bikers.

This was a hidden gem that I should probably write a bad review so no more people decide to visit! Really lovely hike and close by. Every turn was another breath taking view. This will become one of our regular hikes.

This was one of my favorite trails. It’s close to town and has a little of everything from, wide open trails, red rock formations, foothill/mountain view’s, full city views, forest covered trail, trees with leaves changing covered trail, small overgrown trail, and a good workout...it has it all. Like others said, don’t be fooled by the strenuous sign it’s accurately a “moderate” trail. Went on a cooler Saturday so didn’t see too many other hikers but suspect it’s much busier on a better weather day. I lucked into a mostly quiet and peaceful hike though. $7 to get into the park or free with your CO parks pass. Plenty of parking and nice to have indoor plumbing bathrooms at the visitor center trailhead. I will definitely be doing this hike again sometime.

hiked it with my 8 and 10 yr old and they had no problem and a get time with the family

Nice, easy and peaceful trail along the Tompson River. We didn't make it as far in as I would have liked due to time, but I definitely plan on returning

Nice steep incline to start and great views! Not crazy packed and met nice people along the way! I’ll be back because it’s only 27minutes from where I live in Denver!

I arrived today at about 11:00am and the parking lot was nearly full. Today was bring your toddler day. This was my first time here. The first 1.5 miles is downhill if you're going counter-clockwise. Easy terrain. I ran Eagle's View in Conifer prior to coming here so the calves were already burning. I'm glad the elevation wasn't too intense.

One of my favorite trails. Fast and easy to follow.

And afterwards I go to Cafe 13 in Golden for cinna-minis.

Easy hike cool that it’s close to red rocks can hear a little bit of music if something is going on there

Good hike. Easy to follow the trail. Decent incline. Fogged in this morning - would like to do it again on a clear day.

Had to cut this hike short due to bears. There’s a sign at the trailhead about recent bear activity but there were a number of people on the trail so I started the hike. After passing several people warning of the bear spotted that morning, I looped over to meadowlark trail and called it a day. May want to wait on this hike for a while. (Bear was spotted morning of 9/26)

Really pretty hike. Took about 2 hours with no little stopping. Would do again!

Awesome hike! First hike I’ve taken with my dog and this was a great choice. It was pretty mellow outside of a few rocky spots with the dog. There were a few spots where it was tough to find the trail, thus the 4 star.

Although it’s a climb, the wide path and relatively even surface make this a pleasant walk.

Less of a hiking trail, more of a massive road.

Nice and relatively easy, with great views and dog accessible.

Close to the city. Short distance.

beautiful trail. i came accross a mother dear and her fawn, heard the mice/critters in the bushes most of the way up and even heard elk in the distance at the top. wonderful trail. this park really enforces the leave no trace guidelines and it shows.
also, the signs say it is strenuous, but if you are comfortable with hiking its fine, if you hike often its a breeze. i didn't see any snakes.

This trail might have some of the best views in Colorado. There's a lot of boulders in and along the trail. This will slow anyone who wishes to run it. I went with a family member who's not much of a hiker and it took three hours to finish. I'll be going back to get a new personal record.

amazing views of the flatlands and mountains. gorgeous hike for so close to Denver. loved the history!

Quick hike

Love this one for a quick early morning or evening hike. Trail/road is nice enough to run on.

Great little beginner-intermediate trail running or hiking. The views from the top are pretty good for being so close to the city and the red rock formations are really cool too. Definitely a busy-ish trail — I ran into about 20 people on a Monday afternoon. Overall a nice little hike for after work or if you’re trying to stay within an hour of Denver. Note that the park opens at 8am and closes at 7pm. Four stars from me because you have to pay $7 to get into the park.
