Love this trail. Went with my wife and 4 year old daughter last week and hiked all the way to the Seventh Bridge! We are not in any sort of shape and took frequent breaks along the way. Beautiful views and terrain. Lots of streams and birds. Luckily, there were plenty of locals to keep us on track, as the trail is not marked.

Directions: Go all the way up the mountain, then park in the dirt parking area. Should be plenty of cars parked there. Trail will be dirt with a gate in front of it. Walk the trail about a 1/2 mile, take a right when the trail forks, then continue to follow trail 622. (If you go left at the fork, you will end up at St. Mary’s Falls.) The trail does keep going after the Seventh Bridge (I was told you could climb all the way up to Pikes Peak) but we stopped there and began the hike back to the car.

Great trail and view. Most definitely harder then moderate for us. Took us 4 hours to get up and back at a slow pace.

Hiked 2 miles of the trail. Liked the quarry.

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.

Beautiful trail in all respects. Well worn and well travelled trail along the creek to the first falls. No trash! Nice to run trails with no litter and no graffiti :) It is off limits because the property owner (Cave of the Winds) does not want to be responsible if you or I twist an ankle or something similar in our overly litigious world. If you hike or run trails you should take responsibility for yourself and your actions :) Great run but not to be taken lightly in flash flood season. Parked down in town at free lot and ran up. Have fun!

Great trail. If you want to do the loop I suggest going up the rocky switchbacks.

Great causal trail :)

Climbed on March 11th, 2018. Took me about 6 hours to get to the top after stopping periodically for the view and lunch. Climb was fairly easy until around 11,500 ft, then the elevation started to slow me down. Not much snow on the bottom but by the time we reached the top it was 3' in some spots. Close to the top you can only identify the trail by prints in the snow. Views were fantastic and photo ops were abundant. Crowded at the top by people who drove up (Road closes at 3pm for the way up, 4pm on the way down).

It was definitely a lot of a fun, and I'm sure I'll do it again.

Great workout. Started at 6:30 and got to see great view of sunrise. Very few people on the trail that early. Great 60 min morning hike

Hi Danielle. From the parking lot, you go on the path away from the springs. You walk that path as it forms a "u". keep going until you see the abandoned tunnel. after that, youll go a little more and see a trailhead on the right. The sign has St. Mary's falls on it. Have fun!

Extreme workout. Hydrate hydrate hydrate.

Love the incline! Great leg workout!

Love this trail. Its hard, but I love it!

Hi folks, I'm wondering if you can help me out. I'm confused about which dirt road to take. On one end of the parking lot, there are two options--one is called High Road or something, and the other is Lower Gold Camp. I walked a ways on each of these and didn't find the trailhead. I then tried the dirt road on the other end of the parking lot (directly opposite these two roads). I passed the turn for trail 622 on the right, but I had to turn around because it was getting dark. Was I on the right track? The dirt road made a near U-turn around some private homes and then continued upward. If I'd kept going, would I have found the trailhead on the left? Ugh. Thank you in advance for your help.

Frozen falls were beautiful. Be very careful on the icy death traps coming up on the side of Catamount Falls. Very slippery spots throughout the trail, recommending microspikes.

Rough going at first but worth it

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

Its an amazing view.
Everyone is so friendly and encouraging.
Going to try to make this a weekly event for my family.

great trail! not too hard not to easy. clocks in as 5.8 miles

One of my favorite trails. There's a good climb, then a nice stroll through aspen trees. It's definitely a repeater trail.

We loved this trail. Our dog had a blast. This does have some moderate areas and some easy areas along the hike. Worth it!

This is always our first stop when we are in town. Great easy hike.

Always love coming out to Red Rocks. Perfect for the family and dogs.

Great trail!! We would definitely go back. At the top of the trail you get to switchbacks to get to the falls. This part is not marked and there are several offshoots in the area. Be on the lookout for the correct one to get to the falls. Beautiful scenery and nice hike with the dogs.

Beautiful trial along the creek side. The end gets a bit more difficult with rock scrambling but worth it! Trail was pretty iced over but still passable. Very enjoyable with the dogs!

great cardio workout and scenery

It’s actually a .9 mile loop around the park. Nice views making it perfect for a shorter loop run. I use this loop for a quick 5-6 mile loop run.

Awesome hike ! Make sure you check in at Barr Camp to see about the weather on the summit. The first time I attempted the winds were 60mph so the roads and train were closed. Decided it wasn’t safe to keep going. Came back a second time , no regrets.

Very challenging!! Definitely should have worked out more before!! Views are beautiful but the sense of accomplishment at the top is worth the pain!
