Great hike! Beautiful views, peaceful, fun rocks to climb. We did this with me using an infant carrier and with our three year old. He rocked this trail. Definitely would do this again. We went on a Wednesday so not very crowded maybe saw a dozen people.

Very nice walk for any skill level. Pleasant and quiet even though there wefe quite a few other folks out. Gorgeous area.

Love this entire park!

Good view of the distant snow-strewn peaks and a reservoir. Wildflowers are starting to emerge now. Not a lot of scenery to look at unless you're at the very highest point of the trail, but besides that it was an easy trail with decent enough reward at the top. Very few people hiking on a Monday afternoon. Only passed two groups of people.

Once you get to the point on this trail where it turns into a road that heads back to the parking lot (clearly marked with a sign) and there's a building where the reservoir water flows out into a river, I'd also suggest heading up the 'Hummingbird Switchback Trail' that goes up to the Ralph Price Reservoir. It's short and you get a good view of the water, and can even follow a trail all the way around the lake if you want. From there you can take the road that goes around the reservoir a bit and also leads back to the parking lot.

Great exercise and gorgeous views once you get to the “eagles view” lookout. Awesome, well marked path though I would recommend keeping a map on you to navigate— easy to do with the map they provide at the trailhead. Steady, significant incline for first half— great workout! No traction issues and no snow. Easy to get to using directions from alltrails. I highly recommend!

It had been a long time since I had been on this trail, and was sad to see that the surrounding area had been pretty heavily developed. The trail itself is still nice, but the view of mini-mansions was disappointing to say the least. If you are trying to get way from civilization for a few hours, this isn't your trail.

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.

Love this place. It never gets old. Absolutely beautiful. There are several different trails to follow and if you want you could spend hours exploring here.

Wonderful workout! Definitely a steep trek

Nice view at the top! Beware of dog poop

Good trails well maintained.

Yaaaaahhhh! Gorgeous day, friendly people on the trail. Steep at times, short and fun.

This is a great hike. Easy, clearly marked trails. Would be great for kiddos. I took a ton of pictures. I really like to hike by water so this was great for me.

We ended up on this trail a little bit by accident. The parking lots at our first choice trail (Doudy Draw), just east of El Dorado Springs, were completely full. We arrived at the park around 10:30 am and parking was already tough. Remember to go all the way up to (or close to) the Visitor Center to start this hike. It’s very steep for the first mile and was annoyingly crowded, but the views get amazing quickly! We went up about two miles and the second mile was much more pleasant than the first. Definitely be careful on the way down as the gravel is very loose and I totally bit it. No snow, ice, or mud on the trail. It’s a great hike if you are in decent shape and the views are worth it but I wish we went earlier to avoid the crowds.

Great trail when you’re looking to get a quick hike in. Has its steep parts but its totally manageable and the views are very nice!

Beautiful views! Moderate difficulty but definitely worth the hike.

Wonderful hike with my girls, ages 11 & 13.

Beautiful hike through pretty pine trees and gorgeous mountain views. Some muddy spots but nothing bad. Peaceful and pretty! Not too strenuous which made it very enjoyable.

Intensity is towards the higher end of Moderate maybe even Hard for the first half of the loop up Ravens Roost. The incline really kicked my ass. The intensity drops to Easy on the way back. Nice views but I enjoy a more consistent difficulty throughout a hike. Basically no snow or ice. Somewhat busy trail.

niiiice!

It is a nice easy hike. The evergreen summit was fantastic. The trails through the three sisters is good but not great.

Came down from Evergreen. Fantastic hike. Trail in great condition. Awesome views at the top.

The wildflowers are beautiful right now. I would consider Mount Sanitas trail difficult though.

Beautiful hike with amazing views. may be kid friendly but DEFINITELY not stroller friendly so I wouldn't recommend it with a young toddler that can't walk the whole thing (like my two year old.)

Nice hike. Did this last September. Definitely on the easier side of Moderate. Nice and shady for most of the hike. The dam is awesome and a great place for lunch. Some nice views along the way as well.

This is rated moderate, but it’s that if you are a seasoned hiker. Steep steps up and down,very rocky. Awesome views! Good trailhead parking.

Beautiful rugged hike. You start out the first half mile or so on a service road but it’s going along side the St Vrain creek, so the scenery is still beautiful. Also I’d say the last 1.5 miles of the loop are coming back down the service road, but again, still feels plenty secluded. We went on a Wednesday and hardly ran into anyone else and parking was not an issue. Once you take the trail (it’s on the left off the service road) it is pretty steadily inclining for a while. Gorgeous views of Longs Peak at the pinnacle. Would definitely do again!

Loved the scenery on Sleepy Lion Trail! Make sure to turn left onto the trail off the main road. I accidentally made a left turn into Hall Ranch and turned my 5 mile hike into over 10 miles, but a lovely mistake! I saw over 20 deer close-up and a huge mountain peak before returning to Sleepy Lion Trail. Also saw eagles, wildflowers, and a rabbit. Finally hit the dam and took Hummingbird Switchback Trail up to Ralph Price Reservoir. Absolutely beautiful around 430pm! Took the road back to the car and enjoyed walking by the river.
