Bergen Peak has a beautiful view. This trail didn't have many scenic views and I hardly saw any fall colors but all in all it was still a nice trail and definitely a good workout. Also, a great place for trail running.

Great easy trail to bring sea level guests who enjoy walking and wildlife.

hiked it with my 8 and 10 yr old and they had no problem and a get time with the family

Nice steep incline to start and great views! Not crazy packed and met nice people along the way! I’ll be back because it’s only 27minutes from where I live in Denver!

Pretty tough hike but worth it! Parking was a little strange because the gate was closed but we parked right outside the gate and walked in. Steep elevation gain throughout the hike. Loose rocks and dirt. Other than that great views at the top. Able to see red rocks amphitheater, downtown Denver, and plenty of surrounding mountains!

I missed a turn and went up a draw on the far SW end and it was way too steep and technical for me to pedal. Had to take the bike for a walk for a while. Better navigation next time!

Great morning hike not to much traffic and great views from up top.

One of my favorite trails. Fast and easy to follow.

And afterwards I go to Cafe 13 in Golden for cinna-minis.

Easy hike cool that it’s close to red rocks can hear a little bit of music if something is going on there

Good hike. Easy to follow the trail. Decent incline. Fogged in this morning - would like to do it again on a clear day.

Nice hike but probably not hard as it’s a steady climb. Good views on the way up and at the top especially as the clouds had rolled it giving you on top of the world feeling.
Nice to lose the traffic noise once on the far side.
Would definitely do again.

This is a well-maintained, nice trail that’s easily accessible from Denver. It’s currently starting to transition into fall colors. We went on a Saturday morning and were pleasantly surprised by how few people we saw, especially on the non-Bergen Peak Trail side of the loop. As others have said, the listing underestimated the length - my AllTrails app clocked us at 10.8 miles round trip from the parking lot.

Really pretty hike. Took about 2 hours with no little stopping. Would do again!

Awesome hike! First hike I’ve taken with my dog and this was a great choice. It was pretty mellow outside of a few rocky spots with the dog. There were a few spots where it was tough to find the trail, thus the 4 star.

Golden Gate Canyon never disappoints. Another awesome solo hike. Did entire Mountain Lion trail / Quarry Site / Tallman Ranch Loop. It was closer to 10 miles than the 7 or so originally listed including a few trail offshoots. The Aspen leaves are all just about to fall off and the yellows are peaking out right now. Once the sun went down it dropped from about 65 degrees to 39 degrees in about 10 minutes.

I went her at the recommendation of my local bike shop and I had a great time. Was just by myself but decided to not look at the trail map and just go where I thought looked more interesting. Ended up staying and going up and down again and again for almost four hours. Next time I will have to bring my climbing shoes though as I found some nice bouldering spots just off the trails. Was fairly crowded and a fairly easy but pleasant downhill ride. The times I was going uphill wasn’t bad and I would say with some of the rocks and logs in the trail could be considered a medium.

Less of a hiking trail, more of a massive road.

Bills! Buffalo beaver :’)

$7 to park at the trail head . Plenty of parking both times we visited .
Well signposted trail with options to switch or explore other trails on the route.

Great trail with lots of shade. The higher section was not to crowded even for a Saturday, there was more people near the bottom on our way back, but that was because it was in the 12 o'clock hour. I would rate this trail as a moderate not difficult. We went counterclockwise, and the climbing sections were nice and steady, but not crazy steep.

Love this place! My husband takes our 5 year old mountain biking while myself and the 1 year old hike up to the tabletop. It’s decently trafficked. I’ve never had some of the issues others have said about not enough room for bikers/hikers, but we also go in the afternoon. It does get toasty, bring plenty of water and a snack. The views are worth the leg burn!

Close to the city. Short distance.

Nice workout with awesome view!

This trail might have some of the best views in Colorado. There's a lot of boulders in and along the trail. This will slow anyone who wishes to run it. I went with a family member who's not much of a hiker and it took three hours to finish. I'll be going back to get a new personal record.

pretty quick hike but pretty steep. if you’re short on time, give it a go. i will say, this is a perfect rattlesnake habitat. tons of shrubs

amazing views of the flatlands and mountains. gorgeous hike for so close to Denver. loved the history!

climbed it 3x. love the elevation gain, great for training. it feels like it's straight up and you get a nice ridge line in the middle and wonderful views at the top.

Beautiful views but the entire time we were hiking we heard very loud gunshots from the adjoining private property which ruined any chance of a peaceful hike.
