To Do Map

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.’

Beautiful hike, but difficult for sure (its all inclined). It was so slippery, we had to slide back down almost the whole way. The only reason I give it a 4 star & not 5 is because you cannot hardly tell where the right trail is. We ended up going off trail & freestyling up for a good 20min of steep shrub & gravel. I will do it again when its nicer outside. :)

We couldn’t get to the parking lot because the area was blocked off, so we parked in the residential neighborhood 3 miles below the trailhead and hiked up. Sturtevant falls was beautiful! It’s only about 2 miles from the trailhead. Would be great to visit in spring after it’s rained a little bit. We combined this hike with a visit to Hermit Falls (which was another 1.5 miles or so from the trailhead). Total round trip was about 13 miles. Nice and shady hike at this time of year, but be careful when visiting the falls because the rocks are slippery.

I like it medium hard

Would give this a 3.5 if I could. The view and scenery were just okay and you followed a path that was close to the road, which I am never a fan of. If you’re looking for a workout, this hike is 5 stars. You start off hard and don’t stop as you move along from the poop out to the punk. Serious incline the whole way. Following the other trails down is highly recommended as I feel like it would be too steep to descend. The trail entrance to poop out is a little difficult to find, but is right at the corner of where you turn into the park and the main road.

Very challenging hike....risk vs reward on this hike questionable (especially this time of year). Not well marked, scree, ice....etc. Pick another hike in Colorado....no shortage of awesome/safe hikes.

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.

We took the poop out trail up and mystic canyon down. The first mile is petty intense but doable.

My favorite trail because of all the trees and waterfalls.

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

It was my first summit hike in Colorado. Great views and a good challenge.

Cleghorn is awesome all year round. We have seen the most beautiful sunsets here! You can make the trip as easy or as difficult as you'd like. There are so many trails to take, flexing to be had. We have done "the no point of return trail" and it is freakin' intense. I do not recommend it unless you enjoy pooping your pants. :P
It is best to go week days and make sure to catch the beautiful sunset.

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 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.

This is one of my favorite local hikes just did a video on it on Christmas day!!
check it out!!

Closed due to government shutdown and water contamination. Come on Democrats, it's only pocket change. Love this trail

there is a massive hill u walk down that winds down to a area that leads down to where they have the cutest somewhat underground cabins. the trail is super easy. the areas with the trail with the cabins looks like something you would see out of a movie. it was a small trickle of a waterfall. technically not even a waterfall. it's like only a run of water down the side of the rockwall. prepare yourself for that hill back up. you will def be huffing and puffing..

It’s closed today- super bummed. Drove long way to get here. Been before and it’s awesome

Tried to go here yesterday late morning, gate was closed. We did she some people open, but then close it behind them so we were unsure if we could do the same. The walk from the bottom to the trail entrance would have been a little less than 3 miles, so we opted for another location :( was looking forward to check this place out.

I’ll keep looking on this page to see if for any updates if anyone has an idea why it was like that?? Thanks in advance !

The hike down and up were wonderful! Less trafficked compared to Sturtevant Falls. The one draw back was the amount of gravity found in the area.... Heavily graffitied especially at the boulders where the water falls!

The waterfall was worth visiting! The hike was short, so I managed to combine this and Hermit Falls hike in a day! I went on a Tuesday morning and there was a lot of people.

Nice. Safety. A lots of people.

Great views, awesome trails!
Perfect trail for all enthusiasts. Drove up with my 09 4runner (2.5 inch lift, 32's) and my brothers stock 2013 Jeep Wrangler 4dr. Did the majority of the offshoots besides "the point of no return" trail (need sliders atleast). Had no problem completing the rest of the trail. A good spotter will help alot if you are not comfortable in some sections. Also be aware of not blocking the fire road for vehicles that just want to pass by.

took my friend for her first hike and she was dying walking uphill. great time

It was a nice trail for a workout and enjoying the scenery. My backbone and waist wasn’t good condition. I felt pain even walking. However, hiking in this trail worked on me well. I’ve been there over one month, almost every day for treatment purpose. It’s enough steep for setting body pose. Anyway be healthy ~ and be happy everyone.

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.
