Beautiful hike! Steady incline to the summit but not very hard at all. Awesome views. Please pick up your dogs poop! I’ve done this trail multiple times and have always found people just leaving their dogs poop bag along the trail. There is a trash can at the bottom, it isn’t hard to do. If you find a lot of bags littered, consider picking it up and disposing of it yourself. Let’s keep the trail clean!

Went out here today, it was a lot of fun.

Snow was approx 8-12 inches deep on much of the road making it quite a challenge. Several people needed pulled out after getting stuck

Views on this road are amazing, but I did not encounter anything that would make this anywhere near “moderate” without the snow.

Easy trail with a great view!

Great trail, so long as you’re prepared. If you find a 4+ inch fixed blade Gerber knife along the scramble, his name is Brütus; please treat him kindly, sharpen him weekly

Love this trail........and do so does my dog!

This trail was very scenic and beautiful. Easy hike and worth the views!

Definitely difficult to scramble up the side to the trail. Wouldn’t recommend for children or to do alone. But the tunnels are worth the climb. Sliding down is pretty dangerous coming back.

One of our favorites in a sweet little town!

Great trail. it was 8° and snowing when I did this. The amazing views were enough to keep me going.

Highly recommend spikes on shoes this time of year, practically a necessity. Fairly short way up for an incredible pay off

Hiked on Jan. 2 on mostly packed snow about two inches deep. We used spikes but probably would have been fine without them. We had the trail all to ourself except for a few deer.

Beautiful!!!

Very little traffic compared to the main park, offers beautiful views year round. The steps going back up the trail pose a little difficulty for some, but if the trail is taken completely looped around, it's not really an issue. Highly recommend!

Paved path. Easy. Nice views.

Super easy and short. The Rock formation was really beautiful and a great photo opportunity.

Awesome views. Started snowing once we were at the top. However, you should have spikes on your shoes right now. Tons of slick ice. Fell most of the way down. But was worth it.

nice trails, plenty of wildlife, nice river views

Sooooo dope 10/10 with beautiful sights all the way up. Hiked in December of 2018 and the first bit was pretty icy just watch where you’re going!

Great Views on this one! It was very icy/slippery especialy on the decent, so bring appropriate gear if you plan on going in the winter months.

nice little hike. consistent uphill climb but not too difficult. trail has packed snow and ice on the north side. very nice view of Colorado Springs.

Short hike up with a beautiful payoff! The area can get pretty busy with people trying to get their pictures in, especially during the summer but well worth the trip year round

easy fun day hike for our family of six..met lots of nice folks with dogs along the way.

Hiked this in early December. The trail has packed snow in most places (popular trail!). Beautiful, quiet hike to enjoy the winter scenery and the river.

Stunning view from the top, especially with the snow and Christmas lights around the city. Trail was lightly covered in snow, definitely icy in spots from being packed down. Spikes not necessary, yaktrax may have been a little helpful in the icier areas, but also not a necessity. Left the trailhead at 4:30pm, jogged (slowly) about half of the trail back down and got to the car by 5:15 just as it got dark enough for a headlamp. Short and sweet!

Nice sidewalk around a small lake with lots of birds. Nice playground area & swings. Great for pokemon go.

Nice easy trails-great for a morning walk with the dog. Some trails go up a little and there’s great views of mountains and city.

loved it.... easy. great views

This is an easy trail with a big and beautiful payoff! So worth the short hike. The views are breathtaking! Just watch out for of the ground is covered in ice in the winter.
