Plenty of scenic views and vistas along this 1.8 mile one way/3.6 mike in/out trail. Hiked it due to RMNP being inaccessible during the government shutdown. Trailhead parking on the side of the highway 5.8 miles south of Estes Park was pretty full. Nice gradual climb the first half, then pretty steep climbs the second half after “the turn”. We started at 1:15pm and got to the rock scramble at 3:15 and turned back due to time and pending darkness. Packed snow most of the 2nd half up.

We did this on New Year's Day after fresh snow and the views were absolutely stunning. My favorite Boulder trail that week. Added the Chapman loop to it.

This is my favorite close by hike ❤️

Beautiful views by the reservoir

First time on this trail, not too crowded. I went just before sunset which turned out to be perfect for this hike! Depending which way you take the trail, Good views of the sun setting over the peaks and deer coming out to graze!

Hiked yesterday in bright afternoon sunshine, well maintained and lightly trafficked, a trail runners favorite. The recent snowfall had already receded from the trail and unlike North exposed trails in Sunshine Canyon it was relatively ice free.

Easy hike, not a lot of tree coverage. Rating as a 3 for not having any spectacular views.

Pit toilets at the trail head were clean.

Easy trail that offers very nice views of the mountains to the west. You can go out and back or take the trail down to Chapman Drive (dirt road) and take it back up to the Realization Point parking lot where you started.

This is a very pretty, and easy hike. Snowed all the way down and was just gorgeous. The summit at the top passed the scramble is where the payoff is for sure. Looking forward to doing this hike again in the spring!

Easy hike! Only some patches of ice but I was fine without crampons. Super clean trail & easy trail to follow thats offleash for the pups!

Loved it. Great hike from beginning to end. Some icy patches, glad I had crampons on my bag. Next time, I’ll pack a lunch to enjoy along with the view from the top.

Awesome trail for hiking running or nature walking with your dog. Yesterday was very cold, came back with freezing hands and face. hand warmer and a scarf would it helped. Beautiful views specially when you get to the dam.

12/19/2018 - Snowed the entire hike. First 1/2 mile was light snow, after that snowpack and ice. Wore micro spikes the entire time & didn’t have any slipping problems. Towards the top was powder, but it had been snowing all day

Great place to hike with the dog off leash. Crampons would have been useful today (mid December) at the higher elevation but we were okay without them. Recommend to dog owners.

Great loop close to South Boulder! If your dog has a voice and sight tag they can be off leash too! Loved it!

A great hike, the weather is perfect now, just a little bit of icy patches at top. An excellent way to spend a couple of hours outdoors, Not too strenuous

We hiked with a five and ten year old with light snow on the ground and it was awesome.

The view at the top is great! Very quiet, not many people on the trail. Can get slick in some areas. Views were ok throughout. Top is your moneymaker

I hiked down this from Mt. Sanitas. I will definitely be back to run up!

Gorgeous view on the top. Micro spikes might be necessary since ice and snow are widespread on the ground. This is not a challenging trail and highly recommended.

Climbed Friday 11/30/18 - Incredible views for such a quick and easy hike! I regularly climb high peaks but this time of year I enjoy the smaller mountains when the weather is cold and brutal up high. Just a dusting of snow low on the mountain but increases to several inches higher up. I'd recommend microspikes for extra traction. There's a very short scramble on the summit block where you have to make a few class 3 moves on snow covered rock so you'll appreciate the extra traction.

I love this place

Did this one in September great fall colors
Trail wasn’t the most inspiring

Beautiful and secluded. Need spikes for the upper loop part.
