This trail was an awesome, snowy workout. I could potentially rate it a 5 after another visit, but with the sky dumping buckets of snow there was just no view, so I couldn’t get the whole picture. The snow sure made for its own beautiful spectacle, though, 6-8+ inches on the ground and snowing during the whole hike. We worked counterclockwise, and parts of the ascent were a bit slippery and tricky in the snow. The decent was very gradual and easy breezy, quite picturesque. We saw maybe 15 people during the 2 hours, 45 minutes it took us, which is unusual for this normally very popular spot. All in all, the views may have been nonexistent in the snowstorm, but it’s definitely worth it for a great workout and general good time.

First hike on a Cheyenne Mountain trail, heavy snow and white out. Ice under the snow in areas . I needed teeth on my boots, the gear I had was to wimpy. Steep in areas, challenging for a short legged person to do. Nice workout. Even with the weather we ran into four other groups. We opted for this trail because the road was too slick for us to go any further up the mountain. They closed the road as we were leaving.

Brutal but well worth the pain. It was awesome.

WHAT A WORKOUT!!! Per the placard: 2768 steps, 2K elevation gain and .88 miles.

I am definitely out of shape and completed this in 53 minutes including a plethora of of water and quick bite breaks; after the 1800 mark I did a break every 200 steps until the 2500 mark.

There was some snow and a bit of ice on the left hand side of the stair (while going up) but nothing that made for trouble with just my vans outdoor shoes.

Great hike!

I hiked this on 11/2/18 starting out at 10:30 and made it to the top in about one hour. I am an avid hiker and have hiked several 14ers here in CO. This hike was definitely an ass kicker even for someone that works out almost daily! Take plenty of water and be prepared for snow and ice this time of year. It’s really slippery and muddy heading down!

very cool,can't wait to make it up pikes peak

Beautiful trail, especially in the snow!

This trail was fantastic but we went the day after it snowed and as the steps narrowed and got higher in between each step, the ice was thicker. It was still amazing but would absolutely think twice about hiking when icy.

It is a great hike. Can't wait to do it again on the next trip out.

Very hard on the way up. Not sure if I’d suggest running down the trail. It’s fairly steep at some points.

Awesome trail, some sketchy parts but that makes it fun. My husky and German Shepherd loved it

Wonderful run with views of Pikes Peak and Colorado Springs. Ran into a couple of mountain bikers and hikers, but not too much traffic.

Great hike! I will be back for the incline and continue to pikes peak and back.

Really great trail! Difficult but not insanely so (no huge boulders to scramble over or overly slippery places), and I loved making it out to the reservoir. Distance on AllTrails seems a little off though, perhaps because the actual trail doesn't go all the way to the reservoir (although the map on this site does). The person I hiked with logged 4.5 miles on their Apple watch starting at Boulder Street and going all the way out to the reservoir and back.

For beauty, challenge, trail head access I give it 5 stars. For speeding, inconsiderate and sometimes dangerous mountain bikers I give it a zero. Especially if you bring your dogs please watch for bikers.

nice and easy, you can bring the dog. Beautiful, easy.

Hiked up and down on Monday 10/22 on a spectacular, clear day. Navigation was mostly self-explanatory, Barr trail camp was a wonderful gem of a stopover, and the range of terrain was spectacular. Upper three were occasionally snow covered, better part of last 2 miles were often icy and left me looking for rocks. If doing again, I’d take micro spikes with me in addition to poles. It’s a really strong, intense our and back is you are up for it. Took me 6:30 on way up, and 4:30 on way down. Hard and glorious day.
I had 3-20oz bottles with me which was plenty of capacity - refueled at Barr camp (2x - you need a filtration system) and summit once. Your last water source before the summit is the creek. H the A-Frame (around 11,800 ft and 2 miles beyond Barr camp, i think). And make sure you age. Every basic essential - this is a high, exposed trail with little support.

Great hike, great workout. View at the top is worth it. Took our group around an hour to get to the top of the stairs and another hour and twenty minutes to hike back down Barr trail.

best starter hike in colorado

Great moderate trail.

Didn’t make it all the way to Barr camp but still great hike and beautiful views all the way up!

Mentally and physically challenging!! Don’t give up, best reward is to get to the top!

Beautiful trail. Steep in places and had to do a little scrambling and hiking, but well worth the effort.

I love Muscoco! I've done it a few times and find the view breathtaking with each visit! If I've learned anything on this trail, it's that a good pair of shoes makes all the difference! Don't be a dumb-dumb like myself and wind up with nasty blisters. I'm a decently in shape 25 year old and found it a little on the challenging side. I only rated it a 4 instead of 5 due to the lack of parking.
