Nice hike, we took the stairs up and it was a good incline up. Great views from the top. Short hike!

Not the most scenic, but nice manageable trail that is manageable for trail running or mountain biking. Also great that it’s a big loop. No cell reception if you’re counting on that.

on Three Mile Creek Trail

14 days ago

A gental rolling trail that crosses the creek in several places. This trail isn't overly crowded. No snowshoes needed. The lower section of the trail is dry or covered with a light power. The upper sections have snow but compacted. I am not sure the mileage is accurate. I recorded over 7.6 miles and didn't make it to the end or valley. I would think this trail would be spectacular in the fall due to the abundance of Aspens.

Hiked this the day after thanksgiving. Lovely canyon, very quiet and peaceful hike. Not many people there except anglers, no snow in late November. A bit windy but very scenic throughout.

The trail pretty much weaves in and out of the Gill trail for about 3 miles. Fairly difficult fishing access the further up you go, as the Gill trail tends to move up and away from the river.

Not the best trail for views, but great otherwise. No snowshoes needed on this outing, though microspikes are highly encouraged. Trail conditions were mixed, some dry stretches, some snowy and some icy. This trail would probably be best in fall when the aspens turn, or as a connector to other higher trails and summits in the area. We ultimately dubbed this "300 Crossings of 3 Mile Creek" as we crossed the creek more times than we could remember! Great day on trail :)

Beautiful! Relaxing, adventurous!

So beautiful! The trail is a little hard to find at one point,..you have to climb over some rocks on your right instead of trying to cross a creek with a hastily placed log. Spikes are good to have!

Awesome hike, i took it up to Logan Peak in the snow and enjoyed the whole hike. It is non-stop beauty. Also, my ski goggles fell off of my backpack about 5 miles in, it is probably a longshot but if anyone finds them please contact me at 5806564957. This trail is a must hike, and is well built

We ran out about a mile to a beautiful viewpoint overlooking Fairplay, the valley, and the distant mountains. The trail offers a lot of reward for minimal effort. There are lots of beautiful aspen groves but beware of the crowds when the leaves are changing.

Snow/ice on the trail about 2.5 miles in. No fall color left but really peaceful trail

We hiked on Sunday, Oct 21st. It was a beautiful day and the river and rock formations were stunning. There are MANY social trails headed to and from the river. We found ourselves searching for the main trail either the lower or Gill Trails. Made for a fun day! I would hesitate calling this an easy hike. But the weather was great and with dry trails it was fun. Might be a little more sketchy with snow covered trails. Few hikers, more anglers.

Amazing hike. Really enjoyed the views and the weather was wonderful.. The hike wasn't as hard as I thought it would be!

Real nice in the autumn. I'd rate this trail easy, it's a lot more flat trail than usual for the area. The dirt road in took me about 20 minutes in a truck. It seemed doable in a car as well, not much clearance needed.

on Cheesman Canyon

Hiked this Trail on October 13, 2018. hiked 3 miles up and 3 miles back, that put us about a quarter of a mile into the Upper Cheesman Canyon Trail. The trail is easy to follow although the crumbled granite gravel trail is washed out in some places and a bit slippery because of how dry it has been this year. As others have said there is a Y in the trail in several places and you can hike by the river or on the higher trail. We did the higher trail. This trail and the Upper Cheesman Canyon trail are together the same trail as the Gill Trail on All Trails. US Forest Service calls it the Gill Trail #610. By parking cars at both the top and bottom you could hike the entire trail about 4.25 miles one way. I found the part we did beautiful and fairly easy. I'm 70 years old, but I hike frequently.

Amazing beautiful Trail! Fantastic rock formations if you go all the way up. We will be back. Camped at
Goose Creek campground, but could have camped on the trail. Got fantastic photos!

64F in October, had to check this place out! Arrived at 9am, I saw about 20 cars parked(3 parts of big parking lots, easily fit 120 cars) but ran into only 2 dog walkers and 2 fishers. Looks like most people were off to biking. 4 stars because I expected little better views. I have a feeling this place is packed in the summer. Have fun, my fellow hikers!

Nice little hike, pretty views!

Hiked the trail near Georgetown on an 8 hour layover on our vacation. It was cloudy and sleety, but it was the best layover we have ever experienced.

This hike was magical today. The Aspen trees are turning so beautifully and you walk through countless forests of them. This was a pretty consistent incline, yet not too difficult. Very tranquil!

This hike was nice. A lot of good shade coverage. Definitely recommended during leaves changing. Once we got to the top of the trail, we laid down in a sea of trees and it was so unbelievably peaceful. The creek towards the beginning also looked like a fantasy. The water is crystal clear blue.

This is my favorite trail! It’s absolutely stunning right now with changing aspens. The trail takes you through forest along a river and over many bridges. The scenery is beautiful and the sound of the river is so calming. In the middle it goes through a field and then goes back into the forest over the river. Towards the end the trail rises in elevation and gets a bit more challenging, but nothing more difficult than medium. It’s a steady incline, but nothing too steep. The trees are beautiful and even in the parts where the Aspens aren’t changing the scenery is wonderful. I cannot recommend this trail enough. It’s perfect if you want forest, river, moderately challenging, and shaded.

From a serious trail runner's perspective, it is too technical to run the majority of the trail minus the first mile - trail studded with huge rocks, trees, roots, sloping. It is a rewarding trail, lined with aspens along the creek. It goes through a forest then proceeds to crisscross along the creek under aspens for the majority of the trail until it gives way until a clearing/bog. We clocked 9 miles total as well, the end of the trail is the cover photo. There is no proper 'end of trail'. If you choose to continue, it does through a forest then stops abruptly.

We did two hikes, one close to Georgetown and another one at the end of the trail. Both were great, but we enjoyed more the second one, walking very close to the river.

Great trail, perfect time of year to see aspen leaves change. Only downside is that there are lots of horse droppings on trail.

Hiked about 2 miles in, 4 out and back. gorgeous day, gorgeous scenery but aspens are all gone. Get there early, got back to the car about 10 am and both sides were full.

Arrived about noon and it was busy but cleared quickly. Aspens gone at tailhead, beautiful at 1.2 miles in. Great hike up to 10,350 ft. Very courteous hikers, only one very nice mountain biker, 2 horses. However, the dog trash left on trail is disgraceful. Why put dog poop in a bag, only to leave on trail...and why not have a trash can there to encourage those who might dispose properly? I brought a dog, and I know what a hassle it can be, but if you are not going to carry it out--don't bag it up. Probably 100 bags, many decaying along trail. Surprised to see this in Colorado.

Nice easy hike, get there early, people who like to take up the entire trail show up in groves at about 9am through the rest of the day.

Cold in the morning but warms up quick, got there just before 7am and it was a zoo when leaving.

Nice, easy hike. Nice leaves but fairly boring otherwise.
