Very easy, nice hike. I was there on a Thursday at 11am and hiked the whole thing to the reservoir. Lots of wildlife, and lots of humans. I was joined on my hike by probably 20-25 people. I can't imagine how crowded it would be on a weekend.

Easy and fun!

Very easy. Great for small dogs that get tired easily. Still a lot of snow and lake is frozen with a lot of ice fishing.

Beautiful views from every angle, friendly people on the trail every time we go, great way to get out and be active! Bring your camera and friends too! Dogs love it also.

First time hiking a moderate trail. I arrived about 8:30am on a Saturday when I left around 10:15am the parking lot was full and people where parking along the road.

I am still a new hiker so I had to stop multiple times up the incline and was passed by a few people 10-15 years older than me haha .. but it's a fun challenging hike .. I even saw a few deer..

Love this trail! Fairly easy hike with a great view. We always take visitors from out of state here. They’re always happy with the views!!

Popular trail! Mountain bikes are welcome on the Castle Trail portion. Still muddy in some parts but no traction devices needed. Dynamic views of city/mountainside. Nice for a quick hike or trail run.

Super dog friendly and beautiful trail. Incline is steady in parts and more severe in others but overall it’s not that difficult. Rewards are the view at brothers lookout.

Lots of people but great easy hike with great views. We were able to carry our 10 month old in a soft carrier without any issues.

So, I originally came here to hike but it was all flat, straight trail and decided to trail run and enjoyed the scenic. If you're here to hike, you might get bored since it doesn't have any excitement on trails but if you're a runner, you'd be appreciate the view, wide road to share with bikers and hikers. Ran into lots of mountain goats and it was a bonus. My rating is between 3 to 4, but give 4 stars for a special nature and wildlife experience.

Icy and muddy still in some parts but overall good views!

Beautiful views. Great easy hike!

Great hiking. No ice. Not overly crowded early.

The trail is very well maintained and an easy hike. Nice views and some beautiful rock formations. The only things I didn’t like about it are that the “lake” is really just a small man-made pond, and for most of the trail you can see the road and hear traffic...I prefer a little more secluded feeling. It was fairly busy on a Friday mid-morning also.

I loved this hike! One of my new favorites that isn’t far from town. We went early before everyone arrived and it was so peaceful and beautiful. Highly recommend this loop!

Heavily trafficked, not much wildlife, or scenery other than the rock formations.

This is a short loop with little elevation change. Great for taking dogs or kids, or those new to hiking. There is plenty of parking and decent restrooms. Watch out for ice during the winter season. There are several drainage areas that stay icy for long periods of time. If this hike is moderate, it is barely so.

A simple strait forward walk in the wood.

Nicely maintained Trail and was very mellow. Easy and mostly flat. Would be very hot in the summer with no shade coverage.

Iced in spots this time of year. I could have used spikes through one part. Parking is a premium. Good trail, good view of Denver, lots of hikers to say hi to.

Trees and snow make it super pretty. Easy quick hike close to town.

Highly trafficked out & back or a loop. This is one of my favorite trails so far. Very easy and perfect for my small dog that gets easily tired. Great for beginners.

Very muddy after the snow. But happy for the great weather!!!

Great open views. Dog friendly. Pretty easy hike.

Walked to the trailhead and got so muddy just doing that... we got less than 0.1 into the hike and went back. Girl in front of me said she fell almost 4 times and it wasn’t worth it.

It's a flat road, so no "hiking". Great views and that babbling river. The sheep were waaaay up on the mountain, but we saw them. A passerby told us they come down to the road more often in the Summer.

Great running road for training. I would frequent this more often since I live close, but no dogs and my Sadie is my running partner.

easy and relaxed

Nice and easy trail. The overlook was pretty too. Dog friendly. A bit icy and snowy at parts, but micro spikes aren't necessary.
