This trail has a good view of the entire landscape but it’s so plain that it doesn’t challenge me at all. I love it here when I need to walk with my baby boomer relatives or my lazy dog.

January 21st, must wear spikes and bring poles! Dress warm! It’s fantastic!

Fairly flat so not much of a workout but def pretty. Could be good for mom/dad and also Pam - no cliff faces. You see 14er pikes peak for much of it, set against the foreground of red rock formations

This trail was a lot of fun. We went the day after we got some good snow fall so parts of the trail was icy from it being packed down. After bridge 6 it’s a bit steep for sure. I used spikes and had no issues. Beautiful trail!

for being closed there sure were alot of people out there.

this was a super nice trail traction recommended

This is a fun hike to do with the kids. It isn’t easy but our two little ones can still manage MOSTLY on their own. There are a couple places where you may need to spot the kids if they are young like mine (5,6) due to needing three-points of contact at a drop-off. The views are great and there is plenty of room at the summit to enjoy a picnic. The dogs can manage well too. We’ve done this hike twice because we enjoyed it so much.

Excellent hike that had me peeling layers as I gained elevation. Heavy snowfall was nicely compressed by the hundred or so people who must’ve gone before me. Couple of spots were slick and required three points of contact due to ice, rocks, narrow trail, and steep canyon sides. Not too many people out. Great views along nearly the entire trail. Agree that this is on the easy side of ‘moderate.’

Really enjoyed each time we’ve visited

Great hike with excellent views at the top. Somewhat icy the first third of the trail, but I hiked it in tennis shoes and was alright.

A nice little trail that overlooks 7 Falls. The scenery is perfect, overlooking Manitou and Colorado Springs in the distance.

The only thing was that the trail gets very gravelly at the top of one of the slopes. With no guard rail or anything, it could take a little miss-footing to send someone over the edge of the cliff. So be careful of that.

The view at the top was absolutely breathtaking. The best view I’ve seen from North Cheyenne Canon.

Just finished this trail today. After bridge 6 u need spikes on the shoes as it is really icy. We went 1 mile past bridge 7 and it was awesome. My hike today was 4.5 hours, 1,271 ascent and 4.7 miles total. Great day

Great hike. Got a pretty good workout as it’s a good bit of elevation gain. Would recommend traction devices during winter months as it is a bit icy.

Beautiful shirt trail!

Snowshoed up to Heart Lake on Sunday December30th. The trail was broken all the way to the lake and easy to follow. A little wind when we got out of the trees but wasn’t to bad. Love this trail in the winter and the summer!!!

Beautiful hike, but need traction due to ice on first third of the trail. Great views! Wear spikes/traction on boots as most of the trail going up the mountain is covered in packed snow that is very icy and slippery. Easy to find, but parking fills up on nice days/weekends. Busy trail on the weekend, so if you’re looking to get away, choose something more secluded. Even with the icy conditions it is a beautiful trail, great views, and nice little workout. On the easy side of moderate in my opinion.

Frozen fall but still very cool

According to the trail signs it was actually .3 miles one way. The waterfall was iced over and trail very slick. Beautiful views tho

Garden of the Gods was not very impressive after doing a lot of hikes in AZ and Utah

Very nice trail that is well groomed with a few slick spots that don’t get any sun in the winter! Very friendly passerby, with the only downside being people don’t pick up after their dogs...... At least kick it off the trail.

Very enjoyable 2.5 hour hike. Beautiful views from the top. Glad I brought my microspikes for icy parts of the trail along the north face.

This was a very enjoyable hike, this week it has been quite icy in many areas early on but further up it's dry, traction would've been nice but good shoes and the right foot placement is key. Near the top there is a section that our 40lb Sheppard had a hard time but made it to the top. The views are amazing

Very nice hike; a little steep in places which wouldn't be an issue without the ice. Traction devices recommended for descent! Beautiful view at the top with a cute little Christmas tree.

this is a great creek trail that fallows the valley up. we did this hike with show on the ground and several frozen spots in the creek loved it.

We love it. Very beautiful.

First time there and it was beautiful. Flat, paved walk. Great for the family. Lots of people!

beautiful trail!
