Easy or moderate 5 - 10 miles Map

Hiked 2 miles of the trail. Liked the quarry.

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

Great causal trail :)

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!

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.

We really enjoyed this trail. Also glad we brought the 4 wheel drive vehicle for the road to the trail head. It’s a steady up or down trail, not much flat. Today there was still some ice and snow on the trail. We met only one other person on the trail.

I started the trail heading west. The trail was not marked, however easy to track. It was a great hike up the first few peaks. However to get the real ah-ha moments you need to head about 200 yards off trail. I dropped this trail a star because the last 2 miles of the loop are simply walking a automobile road, not very glamorous. The mile and a half before that road are great mountain biking trails so stay alert on foot!

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

A bit more difficult trail with not much foot traffic. Great mix of scenery and trail conditions. Perfect with our dog!

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.

Great hike, even after a snow. Great views at the top. Took the 5 mile loop, fairly easy with one decent ascent. Saw lots of fresh mountain lion tracks, keep your little people and fur babies close!

Hike these trails at least once a month when I am down near Colorado springs...lots of different loops....

Beautiful hike although we started out to do Seven Bridges but couldn't find the trailhead. Nice uphill and vistas overlooking CS and Front Range. Waterfall was of course frozen and not much to see so end point was a bit disappointing, but hey, it's winter. Should have expected it. Will definitely return in the summer!

Great trail! Love this app, it helped to keep us on the correct trail, following the creek. April, I think you guys went left over the creek, we stayed on the trail to the right of the creek and made it to the falls! 6.8 miles!!

I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. The map at the base and the signage are a little different. Map names each trail while signs name loops that aren't named on the map. Once I figured out what the signs were referencing I found this area to be quite nice. There are so many options from a short 1 mile jaunt to the top of the butte to watch the sunset or an eight mile loop. I did the 5 mile loop which offer some nice views and includes interesting rock formations. I will definitely come back in the summer for the wildflowers.

Popular area. A good climb for some exercise. Nice views at the top. Didn't like walking paved road for just a short jaunt, but otherwise a nice trail. More info and pics here: https://etbtravelphotography.com/2017/12/30/road-trip-denver-to-dallas-and-back/

Great hike. Counter clockwise makes for an good heart rate increasing climb with a gentle 4 mile cool down.

Love this trail and especially the front range climb.

Only people out there today. Found all the ice hiding under the snow but a really nice hike. Looking forward to doing again in the spring.

I was confused about whether the trail itself was 6 miles or whether it was 6 miles round trip from the parking lot (you walk for quite a ways on a dirt road before getting to the actual trail). Now, having done the hike, I can confirm that it's the latter. Hope this helps anyone else who is wondering!

This is a beautiful well maintained trail; however, thieves smashed my 4Runner’s window and stole whatever wasn’t bolted down in my car, along with several other vehicles in the area. The local police did not investigate or follow-up on my complaint.

A great area to explore that is close to Colo Springs. There are many trails that weave in and out of each other and many social trails as well. There is a gentle incline if you follow the trails to the south end of the park that provide some very nice views. the trails are well maintained and wide for the most park. It can get crowded so plan accordingly with regards to parking.

Loved this trail! There was snow on the ground but it made the hike and view much more gorgeous! I didn’t think it was too difficult, my friend and I took the Oak shortcut to Greenland overlook, Spruce Mountain trail and then down the mountain on Eagle Pass trail. We chose this route because it was an easy uphill/downhill, and had great views! I also think this is a great hike to take dogs on, we saw and got to pet a ton.

Great way to see the different areas of the park. Very well marked and maintained.

Nice moderate trail. The view at the end is much better in the summer time I’m sure (the waterfall was frozen solid). Looking forward to doing it again!
