Sunday 12/16 - hardcore ice on Cedar Gulch.

I’ve done this one a few times and it’s a nice hike close to the city. You DEFINITELY need micro spikes now! Lots of thick icy spots!

Great hike, definitely didnt feel like a 6 miler. Easy and fun, plus we saw birds and deer and climbed on the rocks for a while.

Great view at the top!

Chilly day up the trail. A mix of packed snow and sandy snow. Traction not needed.

Great hike! Nice views of Golden and Denver. Some icy patches so be careful but you don’t need snow shoes yet. Some tight and rocky spots, easy hike close but not too close to the city.

The trail was great yesterday! Partly snow covered but not difficult to manage at all. Views are killer. Wasn’t too busy either.

Today the view was spectacular. The trail to the summit was 1/2 dry and 1/2 covered with a light dusting of dry snow that was crunchy but not sloppy or icy at all. The snow was less than 1/2” deep.

Beautiful morning with a nice amount of snow and a little ice. Bring your spikes.

definitely need spikes, thin layer of snow/ice over substantial part of trail, anywhere that is mostly shaded.

Easy hike close to the city.

Trail wasn’t difficult i would consider it more of a tough walk than a hike. I enjoyed the view at the top and the weather was perfect. The train was a mix of dry dirt and slippery snow. This is a good trail to just get outside and walk! I didn’t run into one person and I went around mid day.

Great views at the top of pikes peak. Well marked trail.

Beautiful views, well marked

I’ve hiked this trail multiple times. Was virtually empty today. You do need micro spikes to stay safe on the ice.

Took the the mutt for a relatively quick hike near home (Boulder). Definitely a nice way to spend a sunny November afternoon. My dog's kind of lazy so it was just enough to tire her out. The views of the front range from the top are pretty cool. It's a steep ascent for the first twenty minutes or so but after that it levels out and you're essentially hiking on the top of the mesa.We didn't do the whole loop so it may vary more further up the trail. A good spot if you're looking for something close to home.Lots of bikes.

Beautiful views on this trail! There is lots of ice on it right now but many ways to walk around it.

Hiked on Wednesday afternoon. Stellar hike and beautiful views throughout!

Great trail. Moderate traffic. No bikes when we did it. Easy access. Awesome views.

BE CAREFUL at this point. Mt Falcon trail (Castle Trail) is ok except for maybe 300’ of ice.

Returning on Turkey Trot, or going up Turkey Trot, involves thousands of feet (45 minutes) of hardpacked glass ice, even hard to manage in yak tracks.

Beautiful trail. Tough trail, a lot of uphill and tricky footing in places. Worth the climb for sure. Beautiful views! Be sure you have plenty of water.

did this a few years ago so going off of memory! I remember loving the views at the top but it was more difficult than I thought it would be. it is a crowded trail for good reasons. we hiked it during July and got stuck it two afternoon thunderstorms, looking back it's funny, but I remember being cold/wet then dry/hot! but that's not that unusual for Boulder

This is a great hike to do in the winter. The trail is easy to follow even with fresh snow and it may be the only time of year you don't have to fight for a parking spot. Nice steady climb to Evergreen Mountain through very thick forest. Some nice views from the top of Evergreen. Currently a lot of snow and some icy spots. Although we did not break out the Yak Trax they would have come in handy. This is a nice hike close to Denver,l Just keep in mind it gets very crowded when the weather is nice.

A decent hike with a gradual climb and ascent to a nice view. Some snow on the trail made it slippery in spots, but overall a moderate hike on easy terrain.

Currently packed snow and ice on most of the trails. Microspikes recommended.

Fairly easy trail with some great views of Golden, Coors plant, and Denver. Lots of interesting rock outcroppings and formations. Also lots of great places to take pictures.

When we went (11-15-2018) there was a fair amount of snow and ice on the trail. The trail is obvious and we had no problem navigating the ice and snow with just our hiking boots.

If you're looking for something to hike in winter without dealing with unknown conditions in RMNP, this is a good alternative.

It was a nice and easy hike although covered with fresh snow. This could be a bit boring in the summer because there are only Evergreens around. Ran into few people with bikes, dogs and hikers.

I did this hike yesterday (11/11) and the trail was snow covered. It was very pretty with all the snow. We didn’t do the entire trail but enjoyed the portion we did do. I did it fine with nice snow boots but it was a little slippery at times. My friend had crampons on her shoes and they seemed to work well. Snow shoes would have been overkill
