One of my favorites especially in the fall. Beautiful grove of aspens toward the top.

Took the whole family: 10 year old, 4 year old and 11 mo old in front pack. We parked off 41 and hiked all the way down into the falls. great trail!

Nice trail. Wide trail, good one to take the kids. Go early, very sunny, no shade. First mile or so is a gentle up hill. Beautiful rock formations! Close to Denver. Coyote trail is not clearly marked on the return, bring a map along.

This is a moderate trail with some beautiful spots. If you see signs for Windy Peak, keep in mind that’s a side trip that is off of the Mountain Lion trail. The trail markers end once you decide to take the Windy Peak detour, so it’s easy to get turned around.

We didn’t encounter any wildlife on the trail, although we started later in the morning around 9. It’s a great workout, but there’s no “wow” view that makes it feel like it was worth the trek.

Amazing trail. Somewhat difficult in spots but the views are worth it!

I really enjoyed this hike despite how heavily trafficked it was. Has about everything I would want in a hike.

Great trail and perfect weather! Easy until about half way through then it got a bit steeper but definitely not difficult. We went counter clockwise. Lots of water passing for pups to relax and drink from.

The trails are well marked and beautiful scenery. This is one of my favorite trails to go on. However, I would suggest to get there early as the parking lot gets full & it’s a very popular hike.

*keep in mind this is a state park so you will need a pass! $7 for a day pass at the visitor center 3 miles down the road!*
Started off counter clockwise as I wanted more shade on the incline. It was a nice hike with plenty of shade. Took about 3 hours to complete the loop which includes a stop for snacks. No mountain lion siting but did run into a couple snakes! Enjoy!

Good area to hike with several different trail options. Good variety with forested areas and meadow areas with good views.

Headed out about 5 pm on a Sunday. Saw a few hikers but mostly on our own. My 2nd hike since moving here and really enjoyed it. Was a little leery of the moderate label, but it wasn’t too much - although steady incline throughout and definitely a workout for me. We hiked to Greenfield Meadow and back. Would’ve been perfect if the stream had water, but still a nice peaceful hike. Will do this one again.

Great trail with your kids! Nice and well maintained. Our 5 and 7.5 year old did not have any issues and want to come back.

Love this trail. The rock formations are beautiful.

The wildflowers and aspens along the trail were beautiful! Remember you need a state park pass for this one.

Awesome trail, but looking a bit disheveled after the Railroad fire roared through the area & took out bridges, restrooms & signs

Nice hike close town. Easy trails with great views. Ruins are pretty cool. Good sun and some shade along the way. Several trails you can add on or not to make the trail shorter or longer to your liking

good challenge for 60+ crowd. mountain lion seen high on cliffs abt 10.45am. lots of flower and fauna variety in bloom. late june. got startled by a biker from behind. people left doggie poo bags..we saw 2 just dropped at trailside. #leavenotrace

I backpacked into Frazier Meadows for a short overnight in late June. The wildflowers were gorgeous- irises and columbines everywhere. The elevation was constant but worth the efforts. Staying overnight I didn’t see anyone else but could hear one other backpacker somewhere near by. I’d for sure do this as a day hike again!

Beautiful trail. My husband and I started at the trailhead around 10:30am and got back to the car around 3:30. Took about twenty minutes for lunch and stopped a few times to enjoy the surroundings. We went counterclockwise and it worked out great as far as views and once you hit the steep inclines, you’re in the shade. The trail starts deceptively easy and then hits some steep climbs, particularly as you make your way out of the forest. You end on a nice decline, beware of some lose rock in some areas. It gets the heart rate up for sure and the serenity of the park makes the work worth it!!! We hiked on a Wednesday and the park was this side of empty, which for us locals is a nice change!!

I started around 6:30 AM and went clockwise. There are absolutely gorgeous views the whole way around, especially if you go to Windy Peaks. Parts of the trail can be a little steep in places so watch your step. I did not run in to anyone on the trail until I was almost back at the trailhead around 10:30.

Decent little hike but a comment that says, "not many hills" is inaccurate. It's almost all uphill from Cedar Valley Dr., some of it fairly steep. Of course, I was pretty tired from having hiked Half Dome the day before, but I imagine that people who are not somewhat regular hikers will struggle on this. It was hot, too, so bring at least 2 litres of water per person.

I didn't see any poison oak, but a lot of the types of plants that are frequently mistaken for poison oak. :-)

Great wildflower hike and tons of aspens!

Really enjoyed this hike. It was cool and foggy, but it was still lovely. Pretty easy hike if you’re in shape. The ruins are fascinating.

Easy hike up Mount Muhly and recommend for everyone!

Great hike, my wife and I both enjoyed it. We started off on Cedar Valley Dr. Point and hiked all the way up to the water fall.

Wide trail from the parking lot- good for all ages. Rolling path. Nice views from the castle. Interesting info signs. Trails are well marked.
Was there by 8:30 and top lot was full. Saw a couple deer.

Fun easy dog friendly hike.

Awesome waterfalls and swimming holes! Challenging hike if u push we lolligagged and took time to swim and smell the foliage!

I went counterclockwise. Started later than I'd like at 1030 and it got really hot really fast. The last two miles or so of the loop are fairly exposed. I bring this up because the trail was very hot on my dogs paws. Had I know better, I'd have hiked clockwise allowing for more shade and plenty of water crossing for my dog. Also, my Suunto GPS measured the hike at 7.1 miles.
