Nice little jaunt. Can be super crowded with people and vehicle traffic.

Great trail, slight incline up to the dam. Was hoping to see the big horned sheep but they were nowhere to be found. Will bike this trail again.

Easy and beautiful scenery, plus close to the amphitheater and other lookout points as well

I did the Davis Pond Trail and added a couple side trials to make it around 4 miles. It’s a fun little trail, not drastically difficult if you’ve hiked harder trails, and the mountains act as a nice backdrop.

Seven dollars to park. Well kept. Very peaceful. I saw one person leaving as I was entering, and a couple people as I was leaving. Very quiet. Very peaceful.

I did this in early Spring and it was a bit windy, but nice!

My family and I have always enjoyed the scenery along this quick and easy trail. The crowds and parking can get really out of control though. I would suggest going on a weekday or even later in the day on a weekend.

This was more of a stroll than a hike. Still, the scenery was relaxing and the ponds were pleasant. The interpretive signs along the way would make for a great educational enrichment opportunity with youngsters and nature lovers. I would highly recommend this trail to moms who want to break-in their kids' hiking shoes/boots and begin nurturing a love of the outdoors.

Happy 100th Anniversary Denver Water! Hello CT Segment 1! I'll be back for more when the cooler weather starts setting in! My husband and I took our kids, 7 and 10, 3 miles through the canyon. We saw a REALLY big snake (either a Bull snake or a Rattle snake that just shed it's skin) cross the road in front of us. I would say it was about 3 feet long. We also saw some kind of small lizard and tons of birds. Bring your binoculars! Keep those kids on the trail and eyes peeled for snakes, especially just off the roadsides. This 'walk'/hike was a warm one for sure, but very mellow at the beginning. Would love to make it to the dam sometime.

A great little day hike!

We are beginner bikers and this was a good trail ride for our first time here. We came late afternoon on a Sunday and there were just a handful of people walking the trail and only a few other bikers. Good number of up slopes to work ya out and downslopes for fun. Beautiful scenery and wildlife! Will definitely be back!

Many huge red rocks to see. However, I think the most worthwhile spot is the amphitheater.

Nice trail. Wide trail, good one to take the kids. Go early, very sunny, no shade. First mile or so is a gentle up hill. Beautiful rock formations! Close to Denver. Coyote trail is not clearly marked on the return, bring a map along.

great hike, not many people

nice place

Ditto to Amber's post below. Exceeded my expectations. Something for all abilities.

Nice, quick hike just 30ish mins outside of Denver! Go in the morning to avoid crowds. We got to the trailhead around 10:30 and barely saw anyone on the way up. Lots of traffic on the way down (after 11:30) Lovey spot at the top to relax (if there aren’t a lot of people). Easy hike most of the way, a little more challenging as you get on the Panorama Point Trail going up but quick descent back down. Treed most of the way, sunnier as you get to the top. Good for a summer morning hike.

truly easy, but good scenery

The trails are well marked and beautiful scenery. This is one of my favorite trails to go on. However, I would suggest to get there early as the parking lot gets full & it’s a very popular hike.

Easy for kids and fun for the whole family!

Great trail, parked in at entrance so the uphill portion was first and had an easy downhill second half. Was a beautiful day but beware they have concerts most nights so plan to hike early.

Very nice easy hike.

This trail is flat and way overcrowded.

This was a nice easy trail. Great for all ages and skill levels. Beautiful scenery and close to downtown Denver! There isn’t much shade so wear sunscreen or bring a hat if you’re going during the day. I good place to bring out of town guests and take pictures.

Good area to hike with several different trail options. Good variety with forested areas and meadow areas with good views.

Too busy, no parking, nothing special on hike itself.

Great trail for walking.

Decided to check this place out since it’s so close. We walked, I wouldn’t consider it hiking because it’s a gravel service road up to the dam. After about mile 3, the crowds thin out. Will definitely be back to bike. Views were pretty, saw herds of big horned sheep on the road and on the rocks above. Lots of people fly fishing.

fun as always.
as of today, there is no flowing water after the damn, it's dry

First hike in Colorado in which I thought 'how the hell do I get out of here'. It's my fault. It doesn't claim to have all the glitz and glam of other mountains but I listened to a friend who said it was a great way to spend the afternoon and now I will never listen to them again. Underwhelming views pretty crowded and nothing that made it all feel worth it. I know, I know, I have a bad attitude. I honestly just don't like my job right now so it's reflecting highly in this review which is partially unfair but that's life.

Great short hike! I intended to do the 3 mile Red Rocks Trails but ended up doing this one instead. Mostly did it for the views of the rocks and would be fun for family/friends who are in town and want to see Colorado things. Got there close to 8 and the parking lots were completely full but we found a space. There weren't actually a lot of people on the trail since I think most were there for yoga!
