We loved this hike and highly recommend it. Beautiful sights!! Know your limits and turn around once the drop offs get too much to handle unless you have proper repelling/climbing gear.

Very cool trail that takes down into the canyon along the Rio Grande. The rock faces are amazing when you get down to the river and into the canyon. Nice hike!

Very nice trail. It is well maintained and beautifully constructed. The views at the top are magnificent!

Great views. Lovely wildflowers. Plenty of spots to stop for rest on the steeper parts. We were at Panorama Point for sunset (driving up) earlier this week and heard a mountain lion snarling!
Keep your dogs on a leash for sure! Also, if you’re going to bag the dog poo, take the bag with you! Leaving the bagged poo defeats the purpose of cleaning up after your pet!

Amazing! I agree to go clockwise like everyone else said. It was a pretty steep incline, but after that it was not bad at all. The views were absolutely stunning.

Good for a local front range trail.. some hard packed snow near panorama.

Nice trails with lakes and sitting areas. Also area for horse trailers and separate horse trail. Great for trail ride and stop at lake for lunch and port a potty break.

Gorgeous trail with a variety of different scenery along the way. Breathtaking landscapes, easy to follow, some decent hills to hike.

Great trail. Short and an easy loop, but the inclines are nice and the few rock ledges are great for taking a rest and looking over the gorge. I take pups there AFTER we’ve gone for relatively long hike to cool off.

It had some nice views. We went at the end of October and it was pretty cold so bring jackets. Some snow was off the trail but not on the trail. Not very difficult hike.

Clean, beautiful trail. Perfect in the fall.

Great for going on a walk or run! Has views of downtown and the mountains.

Every time I come to Houston, I have to get a long run in here. Great atmosphere with lots of trees and views of the water. It is a favorite for joggers especially at night, given the hot Houston days. Night runs are safer on the western and central portions of the trail.

Fun trail and beautiful views

Recommend going after some rain! Falls were impressive after 3 days of rain. Large parking area and bathrooms at trail head.

Well marked trail to two great waterfalls. We went after a heavy rain and they were flowing! Expect to get your shoes a bit wet if its been raining crossing the stream. Dog friendly and they loved it! Partially paved to Blue Hen falls which is only about .25 miles from parking.

Of all of Cuyahoga Valley, this is one of my favorites ... the blue hen falls is a 5 minute walk from the parking lot and is not difficult ; to get to buttermilk is a more strenuous hike as its more of a natural path.

Quick and easy hike with great scenery.

If you’re looking for a peaceful hike through a forest with some stunning views of peaks but don’t want to give up a lazy Saturday, this hike is perfect. Not too far from Denver and a good workout!

We parked near the entrance to the amphitheater and came down the stairs on the right hand side and out to the trailhead. The sandstone rocks are incredible and are definitely the best part of the trek. The hike itself is fairly easy and the trail is pretty wide most of the way. If you’re visiting the amphitheater, go ahead and do this one.

Nice easy trail

I agree with going clockwise so then you get the panoramic stopping point to have a snack close to the end.

wow! just stunning! this trail itself doesn't run through the amphitheatre but if you veer off this trail, the amphitheatre is a short walk away. I am sort of a geological nerd so these rock formations had my jaw on the floor. such a wild and beautiful place! even in October, make sure you have plenty of water.

Great views!!! Worth it even if it's drizzling and muddy.

Nice early morning hike before the sun got too hike. Lots of parking and easy trails.

We hadn’t expected the snow to not have melted (silly Kansan mistake) but the trail was great. We started at the trailhead and walked to panorama point had a snack and walked back. Well marked trail, beautiful views. Took us probably 2.5 hours but we stopped for 20-30 min at panorama point.

Really nice hike. It was a little slick in parts due to snow on the ground...it was so nice in Denver I forgot about the recent snow! The scenery is lovely all along the trial.

Great hike! Easily one of our top favorites in CVNP. A must see!!

Tons of fun and amazing views! I had to wade through the river at the very beginning to get to the incline, and then the canyon itself was so beautiful.
