I started from the north parking lot and went through the inside/middle area to get some quick shots of the formations, then went to the outside trail (non-paved one) to complete the loop. I included the Rocks and Vistas Garden Loop + Garden of the Gods Loop + Siamese Twins Loop within my hike. There wasn't many people on a Tuesday morning due to the high winds and snow so it was fairly empty. A great trail overall but definitely more of a touristy/nature style walk/hike instead of an actual hike. Also, on the outer loop where horses are used there is a lot of poop on the trails.

Love the Incline. Does anyone know if Barr trail is clear or if it has snow and ice? (I know it snowed yesterday, but am hoping it’ll melt off this afternoon. I don’t want to slide down Barr trail on the way back!)

had a great time with my lady on the trail definitely will go back!

great trail plenty of spots to rest awesome workout

We wanted a easy hike on a beautiful day and this was a great pick. The parking was an issue but all trails were clearly marked and easy to follow. We were afraid it was gonna be really crowded but it wasn’t too bad.

Beautiful views and definitely a work out! Pack your inhaler!

Great way to warm up the legs for a week of hiking. Beautiful views

My Girlfriend and I completed this monster on 4/20/18! It was definitely a work out and the change in altitude was intense! First time in Colorado and doing a hike! The trail down was breathtaking as well! We Walked and Jogged it!

Lovely hike along the creek. The parking lot is up the mountain after Helen Hunt Falls. Hike through the gate then follow that dirt road until you see a little brown 622 marker on the right. Take that for Seven Bridges. if you keep going up on the main dirt road you'll end up at St.Mary's Falls

Beautiful views. Save some energy for the final summit! We brought our two pups with us. Make sure to keep them close as the descend back down those rocks can be tricky! The red trail markers are a huge help. Look for those once you get to the summit beginning sign. Will definitely do this one again. Absolutely stunning.

Loved this hike! Seems like moderate to alittle more than moderate. I’m not sure if I would call it advanced but still challenging. I started just before sunrise and was able to watch the sunrise over Colorado Springs at the look out points that were about 10 minutes from the trailhead. Beautiful sight. After about 1.5 miles you reach the saddle before the final climb. I looked up and saw the summit of mt. muscoco and thought to myself “am I going up there!” The view from the top is amazing. My favorite trail so far!!

Pretty easy hike along a creek most of the way. Only saw one other person the whole way.

Well for one thing it's longer than 3.3 miles the Incline it self is 1.2 miles and the loop down is one of the most Breathtaking 4 mile hikes down you will ever travel... CONQUERED THIS BEAST 4/16/18

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

Hiked on April 14th, 2018. I'd recommend spikes, but you can get away without them. Definitely don't need snowshoes. Trail is pretty well marked, but make sure to keep an eye out for cairns above treeline.

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.

My first Mountain to hike. Started at 6am and got back to my car 4pm. Beautiful views once above tree line all the way to the top. I took my time enjoying my day alone and was in no rush hung out at the top about an hour. Last August

A very strenuous workout but well worth the view! Use Barr Trail to go down and for amazing scenery.

If anyone finds a GoPro on this trail. I think I may have misplaced it out there. My number is 913-274-5686. It’s a long shot, but I just wanted to post something here just in case. Other than that, beautiful views and nice trek to the top.

Easy trail if you stick to the formation area; it’s all paved. Going to the actual trail is a little more like a real hike instead of a stroll. Trail is still very easy, even if you do the four mile loop. More of a nature walk than a hike; if you are looking for a hike or something remotely challenging look elsewhere. Views are beautiful though!

Amazing workout. You can use the Barr trail to hike down.

I have a question, y'all. I've been day hiking intensely for a while, but my navigation skills aren't exactly stellar. I really want to see Jones Park and I've been looking for it for a while. Looking at my pocket guide map, I thought the best way to do that would be to catch 7 bridges and then turn west on 667 (at the junction of 622a and 667). Each time I've tried, I do something like this: reach the end of trail 622 (which starts as 7 bridges), continue through the impressive stand of aspen trees uphill and to the north (ie to the right if you're coming up the trail). I'm able to reach the place where 666 used to intersect 667 (before that section of 666 was closed for trout preservation). I then go west on 667. Yesterday I got pretty far on 667 before I had to call it a day because it was getting late. Does anyone have any advice for me? What I've seen is beautiful, but I've become very intent on finding the ~mysterious~ Jones park. Would I have better luck just taking 667 from High drive until I come to Jones Park? Any help is appreciated!

Always a good time

I really enjoyed this trail. it was beautiful and a great place to take friends from out of state who aren't too sure about doing a too intense hike. I'll be back!

Definitely a strenuous climb! Take lots of breaks and water because the view and accomplishment at the top is totally worth it!!!

The views were AMAZING!! Well marked trail, no snow or ice or anything. The last mile is challenging and has some loose gravel but it’s worth it... plenty of room on the summit to hang out too

Hiked this today and the view was fantastic. Still slippery in spots and the elevation gain was pretty good for it being a small hike.

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.
