Pretty easy trail, enjoyable at the top. Would be beautiful during Aspen season!

Hiked 12/5. Zero issues getting to the trailhead via Jeep. Light snow is left on the mountain. Easily hiked with spikes. Very cold and windy once at the top section of the trail. First half of the trail was easily marked. I had to verify with my downloaded map during the last half of the trek to the summit as the trail wasn’t as easily distinguished. Beautiful view. Fine in cold weather with a face mask and gloves.

Loved this trail! Late November, very few people on it, and most of the trail is packed snow and some ice. Footing isn't an issue with hiking boots if you're careful. Marked very well despite the snow, and beautiful views of the mountains as well. Plenty of birch trees too. Made for a nice ~ 5.5 mile hike (with the loop).

Still quite a bit of snow and ICE! It was gorgeous today, not a single person there in the morning besides me. Trail is well marked and easy to follow.

Spectacular!

better go before more snow comes, only me and 2 other hikers were on the trail, and they luckily marked the way with their feet. Awesome views all around. Bring snow chains if in a small vehicle, I passed a sedan that slid into a ditch in my Nissan Sentra, i had no issue with chains on my tires. snow is about 6 inches at TH, more at the top, very quiet and a nice getaway

Well marked and great views at the top!

Beautiful marked trail even in all the snow!! Great views of the mountains. I had it at 5.4 miles.

Trail well marked and thank goodness for the carens as we traversed the boulder field at the top. The donuts tasted soooo good when we reached the top... and yes, lots of people st the summit!

Amazing views. Inclines kick your butt a little bit but the views on the top are worth it.

Amazing view at the top, best trail we have done as far as diverse scenery. Will definitely do this one again but will do the Devils Playground turnoff.

Tough but beautiful!!! worth the work!!

Unbelievable rock formations! Easy valley hike until you get to the base of the Crags. But worth every step!

Great hike! Did get steep at some parts but the view at the top is amazing. You must go all the way to the top —you won’t regret it!

Other reviews mention the trail isn’t well-marked, but it’s not terrible. I got a little lost, but I didn’t go far before realizing I needed to retrace my steps. Trail is fairly well-trodden.
Views at the top are absolutely amazing.
From car to car took me four hours, but I am still acclimating and it definitely slowed my pace. Will definitely be doing this one again!

Good description of trail and views. Mid October was very nice. Not too warm. Trail could’ve been marked better.

There may not be a ton of drop dead views or challenging hikes but this place offers miles of easy hiking. You can see Pikes Peak and other mountains (further back on the property) The aspen groves mixed in with the pine are gorgeous. Great for fall foliage pics and in winter this place will be awesome for snow shoeing. Enjoy!

The reward at the end of this hike is so worth it. You get a 360 degree view! Breathtaking! The hike is moderate but if your not use to the altitude there are small spots that can be difficult. Rest take your time, enjoy the quiet and beauty along the way.

Great hike! Loved everything about this one- smaller distance but you still get a nice workout in. As others have stated, the view at the end is amazing. I enjoyed the trail as well- lots of trees and openness. Only saw one other person on the trail today- little bit of snow off to the side.

Another one of my favorite hikes. Used to hike it regularly when living in Colorado Springs.

Crags trail is beautiful especially in the fall. The 360 view on the top was amazing and so worth the hike. It’s a little hard to tell where to stop but make sure you follow the trail up to the top! Great trail. One of my favorites so far!

Beautiful trail! I did it counter clockwise, would recommend doing it clockwise as it got steep at the end and I was out of gas. The leaves were turning their fall colors, just breathtaking. This is a great reminder of why I live here!

Did this trail with the family while carrying the young ones in packs. Wife had a difficult go up the first 1/4-1/2 mile but once it leveled out it was very pretty and would love to finish the pancake rocks portion sometime! Trail was clean, well marked and in good shape. I think moderate is a good classification

Great view in relation to the effort it takes to get there
