HikingGreat!

Haven’t been up this trail in maybe 20 years, recent partial climb showed some changes, some very steep cliff side hiking with big drop -offs to the creek, don’t remember that from back then. Will go back better equipped/ attired next hike...seems the little trail done growed up!!

Fairly difficult trail, especially in scree. Beautiful day, however.

HikingGreat!Off trailPrivate propertyRocky

A fun and challenging hike for USAF members & family! Great views of CO Springs, especially in the evening time. Plenty of bootpath approach trails, that lead to some epic crag! Stanley Reservoir is dried up, so don’t expect any waterfront views. We made the mistake of going to Northfield Reservoir, which is blocked off by a private property sign/gate. The owners of the land have camera traps setup at the gate and will be less than friendly to greet you if you pass said gate onto the service road. AllTrails, if you’re reading this review, I’d recommend taking the portion of my recording from Stanley Reservoir to Northfield Reservoir off the maps, as our group was one of 4 groups that day that were met by the land owners on the private service road.

Enjoy the view as you hike. Not much to see at the end of the trail.

Seems like they are only allowing folks with Military IDs to access the bar these days due to COVID. Don’t know of any other screws than the Air Force Academy.

The real trailhead is about a mile after all hikes says where the start is. I parked at the medical group and walked the dirt road to the trailhead. Great hike with a little bit of everything, rocks, forest, stream valley etc. Great views and I highly recommend this trail. Not crowded at all on a Sunday morning.

Good workout. Beautiful patches of Columbine in the upper sections. The lake is dry, sadly. Still a great hike!

North gate to base is closed on weekends. Use academy dr exit for alternate entrance. At the end of trail to Stanley reservoir is dry. Great hike otherwise.
