beautiful trail!

My favorite hike near the Springs! So beautiful at the top.

My favorite hike in North Cheyenne! The view at the top is absolutely stunning and worth the steep climb near the top. Did it today and it's a little icy at spots but definitely doable without yaktraxs/spikes. Highly recommend this hike :)

The rating for this trail is accurate, there are a few spots where it is a little more difficult when there is ice and snow. The views at the top are pretty awesome, you can see the city on the east side of the summit and the mountains on the west side. Parking is good, about 10-12 spots. I know it states dogs need to be leashed but when I did the trail I passed about 10 different hikers with dogs running free.

Lovely views! Came midday and only ran into a few other single hikers. The snow is mostly melted. There are snowy spots but it’s mostly packed down. I wore normal hiking boots and had no problem, didn’t need yaktrax or spikes. A little icier coming down especially at the top, but with careful feet you’ll be fine. As long as it doesn’t snow again, you could do it in tennies with good grip or trail running shoes... both groups I ran into only wore these.

easy fun day hike for our family of six..met lots of nice folks with dogs along the way.

Hiked this in early December. The trail has packed snow in most places (popular trail!). Beautiful, quiet hike to enjoy the winter scenery and the river.

Got this one done this summer while I completed the Mount Herman and Raspberry Mountain Loop via Whilte Ghost Trail

Trail extremely icy. Snow melt and refreeze creating an ice crust.

Lots of ice on Apex and Enchanted Forest Trail, so take your spikes!!!

Pretty trail but a bit crowded and narrow. Lots of bikers so pay attention.

Just amazing! This trail kicked my tail, if it’s during the snow months bring micro spikes. There was a lot of ice making for an adventurous trip back down. The views and scenery breathtaking.

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.

Love this trail. Forest provides great shade in the summer. Not too crowded but you do need to watch out for bikes (and vice versa) as visibility isn’t great in some areas.

Fun trail. Good grade for trail running, but there can be crowds. Was lucky enough to catch a rainbow on my run.

10/29/18 Beautiful trail. There were some icy spots but not too bad. Was able to run most of the trail, but ended up stopping several times to take in the waterfalls.

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

It was awesome! But - keep your AllTrails app open the whole hike up - you can easily get off the trail, like others said, hiking poles would help, loose gravel but totally manageable. I started at 9am on a Sunday and there were a few spots left in the lot - there were some small streams for the pups too!

Gorgeous

absolutely beautiful!

This trail was easy-to-moderate and peaceful. We did it in early October and had a picnic lunch by the second lake. I enjoyed it but I probably wouldn’t do it again.

Everything you need and want in a hike!

Great hike! 85% of the trail was ice covered. Make sure you pack some crampons!

Got to the trailhead today and there were already about a dozen cars in the parking lot. The cleanest restrooms I’ve ever been in at a trailhead are here at Apex. This is a popular mountain biking place. I met several along the way. Overall an enjoyable run.

Muddy hike today, 10.19.18 due to precip last night. Takes awhile to get away from I70 noise. Good workout. Lakes are meh but views at top are nice. Was peaceful and that's what I'm after but probably would not do this again. Too many other better trails in the area.

GO SEE THIS TRAIL AFTER A LIGHT SNOW. It’s Christmas card worthy.

This trail is an excellent day hike. On October 12, my son and I ventured from Copper Mountain toward Wheeler Lakes. The first two-thirds is the steepest portion of the hike with the final third easier on the legs. Our journey included snow, which enhanced the beautiful scenery. I highly recommend this hike.

We went early in the AM and found parking. The trail wasn't rugged and we saw some deer.

This has taken the top spot for my favorite hike in RMNP.. We hiked it on Oct. 9th. The Ranger Station there has been closed for the season for several weeks now. Decent size parking lot but even with the cold, snowy, slushy conditions there were quite a few cars there and people on the trail. We did not need our spikes this time. The scenery is breathtaking under fresh snow. Copeland Falls is .4 miles in. Take the side trail to lower falls and follow it to upper Falls. There, you can connect back to the main trail. About another mile or so is Calypso Cascades. The trail gets a little steeper from here up to Ouzel. When you reach Ouzel, walk to the left side before the bridge down by the big rock and step out to the right to get a better view of the top of the Falls. You can’t see if from the bridge. We read about the trail up to the top of the Falls but weather conditions did not permit us to locate it. We took our time going up and MANY photo stops. Ascended in about 2 hrs 20 min. Hung at Ouzel long enough to eat a bite of lunch (it was really cold) then descended in about 50 min.
Loved every minute of it.
