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

Really nice trail. Well maintained and popular. Lots of cool formations. Favorite part was being on top of the ridge. Saw some snakes.

Beautiful but busy, go early

Amazing

There is very minimal snow on the sides of the trail and some of the standing water is starting to ice over, but no issues for walking through the trails. This hike met my craving for getting out and about, but the trails are definitely on the east side. It’s more like a walk that a hike that gets your heart pumping. Similar to other reviews, it is easy to take another unintended path and end up back at your car sooner than expected. I did enjoy the views of the mountains and overlooking evergreen high school. Overall the hike was enjoyable, but I probably wouldn’t do it again.

Nice hike!

Okay, first the most important, YES there is a bathroom at bottom!

I just went today for the first time with two dogs and they did great. There are some snow remnants around and the trail is a bit muddy, but overall, a very enjoyable hike!

There are some great views and great red rocks to see as you go up the trail. The elevation gain was subtle in some areas, but also a butt burner as you head back at end of trail. There was only one section not clearly marked....it is a steep down trail and once you get down the hill, THEN you will see there it is marked for Red Rocks Trail. When at top, there are three other potential ways...one is a dead end and the other looks like it could head off for a bit. Just be careful of this section, but I don't think you would get far anyway.

I feel tired after and happy. There weren't too many people at 9am and 42 degree weather. So if you dislike the crowds, try going in colder weather. It is still enjoyable!

Enjoyed it with kids, about 2,5 hours up/loop/down! Very nice place!

Did this hike 11/2/18 and there was quite a bit of snow on the path when we first started, and it melted to muddy slush by the time we came down. It was pretty though! Would definitely do this trail again in the spring when the path is dry

Initially intended to do the entire loop but accidentally cut across halfway thru and didn’t want to back track (again). Beautiful scenery, and it’s best to get there early. Heavier traffic begins around 9am. Overall, highly recommend!

Really awesome trail that has a waterfall and many connecting trails BUT, as simple and short as it is you can get lost pretty easy so be careful. Saw one snake but not too crazy of wildlife beyond that. CLImBerS will love this place as it has many tie off points for ropes or you can free climb and boulder a bit. Descent amount of people but everyone was pretty chill and it was a good vibe all around

perfect trail, great angle of ascent and wonderful views

Its a little slushy and slippery out there lately, best if you have high boots and yak tracks. As always, a lovely hike!

Trail was great for a nice afternoon stroll. Just enough to get the blood pumping. Not much of a waterfall right now; but hoping to do it in the spring again.

Great groomed trail and wonderful views

Hiked 10.27.18

Majority of trail is free of snow and the snow that exists at the beginning is packed down. Beautiful views along the first mile, road at end is not the most fun, and I highly recommend heading further to Chicago Lakes--they're one of my favorite places in CO.

Nice little hike. I would call this easy rather than moderate. A couple of sections to get your lungs working, but easy otherwise. Lots of people and pets around 11:00, but until then, we virtually had the place to ourselves, even on a Saturday. Not too far from town, so definitely one I'd do again!

My husband and I, along with our dog, Breezy, did this hike this morning. We arrived at the first parking lot at 8 am. We didn't think we could make it up the road to the TH so we decided to just hike it. It was a pretty good workout on the way up and I was really thankful for my spikes. Once above the tree line, I was glad I had lots of layers on. The wind almost blew us over at times. It was gorgeous up there! We went to all 3 lakes and only the highest one was frozen over. Beautiful views and not too much snow. I would love to come back in the summer to do this hike again. My Fitbit clocked 7miles RT including the hike up the road to the TH.

I tend to enjoy hikes a bit more when there is water involved. This is definitely a fun hike and amazing once you get to the falls! I must say I am guilty for packing a nice snack and enjoying it by the water!

Really great hike!

10/16/18 It was windy/cold with sunny skies. Used spikes at first but really not necessary especially when headed back to the car.

Great for sightly more difficult family hikes.

Fun little trail, definitely bring your spikes it is slick! I wore, and regretted wearing, trail runners.

This was a great hike! There are three lakes at the top, the third is a bit further up & is frozen over. The trail is completely snow covered and icy in some patches but passable the whole way. Spikes would be nice if you like to use them, but not necessary. It was a little windy at the third lake and we were occasionally stepping into knee deep snow. Great hike with the doggies. We saw a few other groups of people along the way. Absolutely gorgeous!

Lots of bikers, great view at the top. Very gradual incline and not too steep

Good trail, but had a hard time finding where it looped, so once I got to the top of the reservoir I turned around. Peaceful and beautiful views. Handful of people coming down from the Chicago lakes trail, but not overly crowded. Will probably do this again when I try the Chicago lakes trail. A bit slippery in spots with the colder weather coming, so have good shoes.

We did this in about a foot of snow yesterday. Was pretty tough but we were able to complete it in a few hours with our dog. View was incredible!

Did this hike yesterday in the middle of a snow shower, and it was really nice! Like others, we missed the turnoff for the falls, but found it after finding the sign on our way back down. Apparently, we hiked nearly 1/2 a mile past it. My phone was acting up, so I wasn't able to add a waypoint to the map.

That being said, this is a really nice hike. It would be great for out-of-towners, since the elevation gain is very managable. I don't know if it was the weather, or that it was Wednesday, but we ran into more bags of dog poop than people. Seriously folks, clean up after yourselves!

We were looking for a lake hike not far from our house and this looked like a good candidate. The Guanella pass road was still open so we took it, and then drove the Naylor Lake Road up to the upper parking lot, shaving about a mile off of the total distance of the trail. I'd highly recommend AWD or 4WD. We did it in our Jeep in 2WD but that road can get slick really quick. As we were driving through the Guanella pass road we realized that there was a light coating of snow at the top, and assumed that there would be a little snow up where we were headed, glad we packed warm. The hike was fairly easy, with a skim coat of ice on some of the areas where water came off the mountain and pooled in the low spots. We were glad that we had our trekking poles if only for a couple extra points of contact. About 2/3rds of the trail is above treeline and is exposed to the elements. The wind started to kick up fiercely as we made it to Silver Dollar lake and continued to Murray Reservoir. The views were obstructed somewhat from the low ceiling, but it was still worth the hike.

I'll have to come back sometime in the spring to check and see if there are any nice looking trout in those lakes!

Great trail with beautiful scenery. Flat areas along with ascending trails throughout. Lots of mountain bikers. I really enjoyed it. Beautiful colors in the fall.
