This hike was so enjoyable, with hardly any huffing and puffing. Nothing but spectacular views from top to bottom. To top things, we only saw one other hiker. You can see everything from the top including the Indian peaks wilderness, and I am pretty sure even longs peak to the north. You could still see boulder also. This is a great beginner’s hike. It was breathtaking with all the snow called vistas!

Fun trail! Packed with snow but beautiful nonetheless. For some areas having trekking poles would make it easier.

beautiful trail and perfect weather on 1/14. 6-8 inches of snow on each side of the trail, moderately packed snow on the trail itself. used micro spikes pretty much all the way.

Today we did the Canyon Loop. It had quite a bit of snow but it was well packed so no need for snowshoes. There were some muddy spots. This was an easier hike.

Went on 1/15. Not too many people, made my own route to make it longer and went to the top of Mt. Falcon. With the snow it was definitely a decent workout! Snow was packed, no need for spikes or poles.

Perfect. Yak tracks or microspikes help but not required.

Pretty. Nice incline. Brought my 70lbs greyhound and the up was fine but going down was too steep with big rocks to climb over, so we had to go down Sanitas and take neighborhood roads back to the car. I won't take it again.

Great views! Take yourself to the top! Close to Denver and easy to get to. I’ll be back for more. Not sure how it is with snow as I was there back in late November.

Great views. Did trail clockwise so went up the stairs which felt safer. Trail was snow covered and deep in places. No ice but should wear micro spikes

amazing winter hike. snow was loosely packed, not icy. I hiked in just boots with good grip. get out here when the snow is fresh, it's stunning!

trail is snow covered but not icy! beautiful as can be!

My friend and I snowshoed this trail yesterday and I was so pretty in the winter! Just outside Denver, it’s a perfect day hike. Views were a little limited due to the cloud coverage, but still so beautiful. The last mile was a little tougher in the snowshoes due to the elevation gain being all at the end (depending on what direction you start), but we made it and loved it! I’d like to try it in the summer months!

Went on a fresh snow day. It was stunning great views wildlife and moderate traffic. Under the snow there was packed ice but the drag snow kept the walk stable without having to wear spikes. Snowshoeers were out and about. I’d definitely do it again!

Excellent hike!

Amazing trail! The person who commented three below me is correct- there is no trail labeled "Super Betasso" but the other trails are well marked. Just went today and small spots of ice but nothing serious. We will be back!

The trail wasn’t difficult, I didn’t love it but didn’t hate it. The view at the top isn’t great, it mainly blocked by trees. It was a good way to get outside and enjoy the outdoors!

One of my favorite trails! So beautiful. We did the loop counter clockwise, it seems like it could have been a little easier to do it clockwise though.


Hiked this trail 4 days ago. It was icy with light snow coverage. I used micros which helped a great deal. The frozen waterfall was beautiful!! A great winter hike. I look forward to doing this hike in the spring.

Amazing hike with 360* views - I can’t recommend this hike enough! Loose rocks almost the entire trail, might be a bit difficult for some. Completed 1/8/19.

This is my favorite close by hike ❤️

We started at the Beaver Brook trail which is 3 miles downhill and back up the Chavez which was 2 miles uphill. We went 1/6/19 and there trail had some snow and ice in some areas. The trail is a mix of flat trail, rocks you need to hug or climb over and crossing streams. Just be mindful that the last 2 miles have quite an incline uphill and it’s not easy. I am looking forward to doing it again in summer as it is well shaded and I may be in better shape

Beautiful views by the reservoir

A wonderful hike with amazing views. Hardly anyone was on the trail! Nice, balanced trail!

easy hike. nice description signs.

This is not an actual trail, but a social trail where you have to climb over a fence to get to it. Shouldn't be listed here.

Since it's not a planned and built trail, it can be difficult and dangerous in places where (as these types of trails cause) erosion is damaging the steep parts.

Quite a few people out today - 55° and sunny! Trail had some snow covered sections but did not require spikes. Great views at the top. We went counter-clockwise on the loop and took the Oxen trail back to the parking lot.

Agree with comment below.

Great hike! It was a steady climb most of the way up but no really tough spots. I’d rate the hike as moderate but others I was with had a tougher time and would rate it as hard. There was a little snow on the trail in some areas but spikes are not needed! It took us about 5 hours total, including stopping to rest and take pictures at the top. Would definitely recommend! 1/6/19
