My first hike in Colorado was great , this trail is easy to do, though I would recommend micro spike if you worried about slipping, the snow is pretty packed down hard !

this says loop but I did an out and back?? anyways, it was beautiful! I went early morning and nobody was there. I am new so took a lot of breaks but otherwise an easy hike

Went on 1/15. Not too many people, made my own route to make it longer and went to the top of Mt. Falcon. With the snow it was definitely a decent workout! Snow was packed, no need for spikes or poles.

My friend and I snowshoed this trail yesterday and I was so pretty in the winter! Just outside Denver, it’s a perfect day hike. Views were a little limited due to the cloud coverage, but still so beautiful. The last mile was a little tougher in the snowshoes due to the elevation gain being all at the end (depending on what direction you start), but we made it and loved it! I’d like to try it in the summer months!

Absolutely stunning! The hike is still pretty much dry, any hiking boots were fine. Just a few small patches of snow. This hike has SO many amazing views at each and every turn. Highly recommend for an easy day hike.

I took Parmalee Trail to Tower trail to the top of mount falcon which was about 3 miles to the top.

As said earlier, parking fills up quickly. I got there around 1030 and there were spots but by the time I finished around 1 there was nothing.

Did trail on 1/3/19 after the snow storm on 12/31. It was quite a long walk from the parking lot to really get into canyon. The trail is a road that follows the creek. There is a lot of bikers and runners since it is flat and wide. Looks like you can drive but all park and water trucks driving through. We did see big horn sheep and deer. Not challenging trail for waking.

Hiked 1/5/19: Very beautiful/easy short hike with a few side overlook trails! This is a very busy trail with all ages but surprisingly had the most wildlife I’ve ever seen on a hike! I saw deer, rabbits, birds and TWO BABY BOBCATS! There was quite a few people who witnessed the two babies but the mother was nowhere to be found. A gentleman in the crowd said he would let the ranger know! Also, once park capacity hits it’s one car in one car out. It was at full capacity by noon. $8 park fee! Totally worth it!

Fairly easy loop with good views. Mount Falcon gets very busy, especially on weekends. So parking becomes an issue if you get there during peak times. The earlier the better.

I love this easy hike for short winter days, when you really want to get out but don't want to deal with ski traffic in the high country. The trail was really quiet today except for a few out-of-towners. Folks please remember to pack in and pack out your trash. I noticed a few used Kleenexes and food wrappers tossed along the side of the trail. The scenery and wildlife here is too beautiful to be so careless.

Feel like an easy day? Here ya go!

giving a 3 because the pit toilets at the trail head were gross - almost overflowing, but the real toilets at the other lot made up for it.

Also, very open trail, no real tree coverage. Trail was easy.

completed this trail in September 2018 as a bike ride. Trail is easy to ride, a little more difficult towards the end, but overall, not a bad ride. We saw 3 big horn sheep. Pretty open trail, not a lot of tree coverage, and there are some places you can access the river for water.

There is a pit toilet at the parking lot at the trail head which was clean.

Easy peasy with nice views. Gentle trail running.

Very relaxing trail with beautiful rock formations and vistas. The trail is almost completely exposed so a perfect walk with the dog on a sunny winter day. Don’t expect to be alone as many other hikers and dogs were also on the trail. A half a dozen deer grazed near the trailhead right at sunset, which made for a serene end to the hike.

Pretty views on a clear day...deer were abundant today. Be aware of them running across the trail.

Sunny and 55 on Dec 21st ☺️

The bike ride was awesome!!! The Long Horn Sheep were out and about! Spectacular! Wear gloves if biking! Go between 11am-2pm - Get as much sun as you can!

Great spot and so close! Only did a short loop just under 2 miles. Nice nature house with bathrooms. I heard you can call ahead and reserve a golf cart to take the seniors on a ride around

Super easy and beautiful!

Easy, beautiful views, and close to Denver!

Easy, close to the city.. Limited shade

Loved this trail for the bighorn sheep!

Nice easy trail

Hiked this the day after arriving in Denver. Good warm up hike.

The trail is nice, but be prepared for some slushy, muddy parts. It is very easy and absolutely gorgeous!

The bighorn sheep are totally worth the hike. I couldn’t believe how close we got to them. I could have reached over and petted one had I not been so petrified that one would ram me!!

Nice trail, not too much traffic, and got my out-of-shape heart going!

This trail is convenient from Denver, has amazing views, and most times you’re able to see big horn sheep!!

Nice, easy trail that has amazing views of rock formations. It would be a great trail for snow shoeing this winter.

It was AWESOME to see the big horn sheep
