One of the prettiest hikes I've been on around Red Feather Lakes. Definitely agree that it was more moderate than easy, but my 9 and 12 year old did fine. We turned around at the 2.5mi mark, so a total of 5 miles. Took us three hours. Absolutely recommend!

My girlfriend and I loved it! If you’re looking for water falls there were none this time of year (August) took is 6.9 Miles to do the whole thing

very nice easy trail. Not a lot of shade but great views of the lake.

We thought we were doing the easier Kreutzer trail as there are two entrance points in the picnic area that you can get on the trail. It was a bit difficult for my 8 and 10 yr olds. Lots of burned and beetle kill trees. We will come back for the easier trail and the kids can build up their strength for the harder one.

absolutely beautiful and full of amazing scenery♡

Great hike near town. Very scenic. I went for the sunrise (see pic). Yes it's Rocky, so easy to moderate.

I started early at 5:45 am and didn't see anyone on the trail until around 9 am.

The sunrise facing east out the north end inlet was spectacular.

wonderful trail!

Did this hike on Saturday morning (8/4/18) with the intent to capture a sunrise. The trail and sun did not disappoint (see pics). The hike itself is easy, but the rocky trail could make it more of a moderate hike for some.

If going for a Sunrise I recommend dropping into the north end inlet and using the exposed rock cliff and shoreline as a natural contrasting boundary to focus and frame the sun.

Then enjoy the 6 mile round trip out & back hike with the "sun dancing" along your side.

Only negative is paying state park fees for the hike. But can't really complain as it helps maintain the parks.

Beautiful hike! The view is amazing

Beautiful but very challenging! Did this hike on Saturday. Got to the trailhead at 9am. Took the Greyrock Trail to the summit then did that to the top, backtracked and then took the Greyrock Meadow trail back down. Definitely a difficult trail—lots of vertical climbing and the rocks at the summit were tough! Plenty of loose rocks too. I was glad I wore my good boots. The views were gorgeous and despite the warnings I didn’t encounter a single rattlesnake. Completed the entire thing in 4 hours.

Absolutely fantastic. Wonderful hike with rewarding scenes and serenity from top of the tooth. Lots of people in the parking lot, nobody on top. Everyone scattering could have been due to periods of heavy rain and maaaybe some lightning. Stayed away from summit until storm cleared. Spectacular!

Mileage on the All Trails app is inaccurate, it is closer to 5.2 miles. Counterclockwise, the descent is challenging and slippery and steep. If we do it again we will go clockwise so we can have a calmer and more enjoyable descent. $6 to park. Bring lots of water, sunscreen, a hat and rain gear. Leave the dog home so you don’t annoy other people on the descent.

Did this trail about a week ago with a large group and absolutely loved it. Trail isn't too difficult until the very end going up the actual rock which requires a very small amount of climbing.

We did encounter a medium sized rattlesnake on the trail as well, so be on the lookout. The area is full of toads and deer as well.

The top of horsetooth was truly breathtaking. It offers a nearly 360 degree view of everything and the sunset was gorgeous. Definitely worth it for an evening hike, just bring a headlamp for the return trip. For some people there was no cell service, so if you're an out of towner like me, make sure you have a ride arranged prior to hiking, or at least someone who can hotspot you. Would love to go back for a sunrise hike!

It was beautiful, it didn’t take long to do. I wouldn’t get excited if you planned on seeing a waterfall, it’s more like the leaky hose someone mentioned before... but views are worth it.

Round mountain/Sheep Mountain is probably the most underwhelming summit I’ve ever done. The trail is very steep and long for the majority of the hike. In total it’s close to 10 miles. This is a good hike if you’re looking to train for longer harder hikes or just want a killer workout. There are a few nice views along the way but nothing too exciting. Somewhere along this trail is an unmaintained trail to Stone Mountain. Apparently Stone mtn has great 360 views but I have yet to do this. Might be worth it though if your looking for something more spectacular. You can find directions online. Haven’t seen anything on AllTrails yet.

Amazing trail to take your dogs on and get started with hiking, very easy hike with a great view of Dowdy lake at the end!

This is the Round Mountain Adventure Summit however you're climbing to Sheep Mountain so there is a name confusion there. Probably the hardest hike ever been on.... went through 2 liters of water and took us a good 6 hrs to complete (disclaimer- we just got in from Houston the day before). This is definitely 10 miles total once you counter in the entrance trail plus the 4.75 miles to the top. We were so tired once we finally made it we never looked to see if there was a log book that someone had mentioned previously and the views at top are at best less than decent... maybe we didn't walk far enough but I was trying to make sure I had the energy to make it down. 4 hrs up and 2 to make it down (clouds came so we picked up the pace on the descent). I will say it was a beautiful hike going up and down which makes it totally worth it!! Take plenty of water, and a horn for bears as they frequent the area. The journey is all that matters and after almost 10 miles and close to 3k ft elevation gain, you'll feel a little badassy!

Great trails leading to Horsetooth mountain peak and great views! The waterfall this time of year isn’t full but a great hike round trip was 6.5 miles

Great trails and amazing views. Doesn't take too long if you keep a good pace.

Lots of climbing. Scenic, but the peak is a real let down..it is literally a large cairn..surrounded by trees. Nice challenge, but the best views will be seen long before you reach the top. I also tracked mine closer to nine miles with close to 3000 feet of elevation gain.

the scenery was very pretty, but we had actually gone to see the waterfall. unfortunately it look like somebody was running a water hose over a rock.

Definitely medium difficulty due to slope and rocks. The distance is accurate, but assumes hiking the Summit Trail only. The Nature and Summit trails split about 500 feet above the parking lot.

Started out at 7:15 a.m. with only two other cars in the lot. Saw only a few people the entire time. Fairly nice semi-obstructed views eastward after about the first or second mile. The trail runs along a contour line for the first mile or so, with a steep downhill drop (not for the faint of heart). The summit is a little underwhelming, with limited views.

Lots of road noise for the first mile, and someone decided to put a materials yard/quarry just downhill from the first set of switchbacks, which makes a lot of noise for the first mile or two. There's a public park being built across Highway 34, so expect some potential construction delays getting to the trailhead.

Great cardio workout. Steep incline. the primitive trail on the way down was a bit scary. Look for the rock markers to know you are going to right way. I had my dogs with me but had I known the way down was primitive trail I would have gone down the way I came up. That trail was very well done. No one else was out on the trail when we went. Lots of great views. Not much shade.
