January 21st, must wear spikes and bring poles! Dress warm! It’s fantastic!

Fun trail, lots of great scenery.

Love to hike this scenic trail year round. Beautiful views and flowers! Favorite of my dogs and some great spots for photos.

Had a great run. The area is beautiful and bigger than you think.

Awesome hike! Snow packed where it’s shady and pretty muddy where there was sun. Spikes definitely would have helped but I was able to do it without them.

Super beautiful views! We ended up needing snowshoes the whole time but the trail was still well-maintained and easy to follow despite the snow. I haven’t done this hike in the summer to compare, but honestly I think the views of snow-covered mountains would beat summer views any time!

Ahhh, this luxurious park seems to have it all! It boasts trails of all levels, off leash dog area, and some fantastic views. I cannot remember which we hiked, as I feel we meandered between a few, but the experience was one to cherish. We hiked with our 7 year old and small dog among the red rock landscape. Coming up over a hill to take in the view of The Garden of the Gods at golden hour was nothing short of magnificent. I will certainly return to this open space to explore the remaining trails we were unable to complete.
(Hiked: March/2018)

Very close to the house and a good place for a quick escape from stress.

Fun, easy ride bike t watch out for loose sand and hikers.

Nice area for a short or long hike.

Challenging first 1.7 (according to Garmin watch) mile up through some ice and snow. Coming back down was gradual downhill and fun to run. Trail has some great views. We were there on a sunny winter Sunday and only came by a few other people.

Returned to do the entire loop. Clocks in at 6.2 miles. Good workout, conquering the almost 1300 ft of elevation gain. Popular on the weekend, but few do the entire loop. Many sections of slippery ice/snow. I wouldn’t have felt comfortable without traction spikes, but saw some going without, although very slowly. The loop doesn’t exit where the parking/trailhead is, you need to turn right down snow-covered road to Gold Camp Rd, go up the hill to find trailhead parking. Long, challenging hike, but worth it as it is beautiful!

Nice hike! Pretty scenery.

Went on a late morning hike here, setting out around 11am. Trail was mostly clear with a few sections of packed, slippery ice where micro spikes came in handy. Beautiful views all around the loop st the top, with plenty of spots to sit, rest, and enjoy the view. All around a pleasant, family-friendly hike, great for all ages and levels.


Nice hike with great views. First half can get snow/icy, so bring traction if you’re not “sure-footed”. Quiet during the week, popular hike on the weekend. Challenging up hill, but not hard. If you’re in decent shape, shouldn’t be a problem. Saw lots of deer. Beautiful view at the summit. Will do this trail again!

Love this trail

Moderate is right. Excellent hike.
Beautiful covered shaded sections. Dec 30 the trails were clear but snow. Sunny skies. Happy Dogs all along trail.

The trail had patches of snow so we were glad we wore proper hiking shoes. This trail is gorgeous! AllTrails rates it moderate but I’d say it’s in between easy and slightly moderate. We will definitely be hiking this trail multiple times next year. There are many lookout points with picnic tables in tucked away places and near the edge and offers amazing views. We plan on coming back when the weather is warmer and having a picnic. There was no ice today because it got up to 50 degrees and it wasn’t windy. 12/30/18

Hiked only part if this trail with my dog-going back to hike full trail! Beautiful views, moderate hike. Saw only two other hikers whole time so it was very quiet and peaceful.

Perfect for a shorter hike. Nice because you can take it further if you have more time (this trail connects to ring the peak). Beautiful all year round! The greens in the summer are fantastic, fall colors are great, and winter is beautiful as well. I would caution if you go in the winter have the right gear, as you may experience snow, ice and muddy trails.

Pretty but also pretty easy to get off trail and get lost. Still worth checking out if you have a couple hours to spare. There are also some nice dog parks

Nice trails with nice views

Open last weekend. Great trail.

One of the best hikes in the Springs. Not easy, but really pretty.

Beautiful and dynamic sights.

Back part is very icey. You will fall unless you have proper foot gear. Some ice in the middle too. Still some good runnable areas. Pretty views. Decent climb.

Mostly an easy trail with about a half mile of moderate hiking. The views are nothing to write home about and a lot of the trail is pretty chopped up from people hiking and riding in the mud.

First half of the trail is super icy but once the sun hits you up top it’s beautiful and easy.
