Nice easy trail! I hiked the trail with my young daughter and we had no issues. Good views but I wouldn’t exactly call this a moderate trail, more along the easier side.

The trail had spectacular views of Estes and looking at the entrance for the national park. I didn’t like how soft the trail itself was. I sunk down into the sand with every step. It was quite the challenge there and back with good elevation gain. The views made up for the little faults it has.

Fun trail. Nice views and follows creek most of the way up.

Amazing views! First time driving this road. Made the whole trek from Breck to Como. Was a bit worried at first as my SUV is only front wheel drive but it handled the snow (couple of inches) and mud without a problem. Next time I make the trip, I think I’ll start the trip at Como to be able to take in the sunset behind Breck and have dinner and drinks in town when it’s over.

Absolutely beautiful the whole trip through. I LOVED it!

Took puppy after first snow of season. He loved it and it was good trail for a young dog. Easy but lovely.

So happy we did this hike! The weather ended up being way better than we expected. We had to guess our way for most of the hike bc the snow covered the trail. It’s pretty slushy right now so I’d recommend waterproof shoes! We made the scramble up to the top through the crevasse and enjoyed the amazing views!

Absolutely gorgeous hike! A steady ascent led to a rocky area with a fantastic view. This is an easy hike to do with dogs. There are bag stations. The trail isn’t very rocky.

This is a fantastic hike with a ton of water along the way. Beautiful waterfalls and a great lake at the top. My ten-year-old, seven-year-old, and dog are able to do this pretty well, but we live at 6000 feet. This is not the easiest hike with a lot of rocks and some steep climbs, but it is very worth it. We went on a Thursday and arrived at about 8 and parking was easy. By the time we got down about three and a half hours later the parking was a nightmare.

Trailhead at Sawmill museum off Boreas Rd. Easy trail with about 300 elevation through forests. 2.4 mi out/back.

Amazing 360 view on top of the rock. Make certain you scale the crevasse between the rock to get to the very top. Truly breathtaking views.

Moderate hike climbing 1k feet over 2 miles with a steep stretch the last .25 mile of the trail. Good for everyone jut go prepared with water, protein and maybe a good walking stick.

2 hours in and 1 hour out and that was with lots of stops along the way.

Amazing hike.

I was here last year and some improvements to the trail have been made. However, it can still be difficult to stay on near the top because it is almost solid rock. I started at 8:30 this morning and had the lake to myself along with a mountain goat. Please be aware that although the lake is only 1.4 miles from the trailhead it is steep. Also, there is a .7 mile walk from the parking lot to the trailhead.

Trail had a large amount of traffic on a Tuesday afternoon and some liter, other than that pretty good.
Great scenery, but no vistas. Trail follows Creek most of the way. Just okay viewing of fall foliage.
Lots of dogs off leashes which I don't mind. Trail is really in between easy and moderate.
Given the 70 minute one way drive, I would only come back if I had dogs with me.

Nice trail. Great views of Estes Park and RMNP. Some steep parts but nothing really more than steep steps. Hermit Park is a very nice area and the trail is well marked and well maintained. check on the fee before you go in.

Such a beautiful hike! It’s maybe on the more difficult side of moderate, but nothing too crazy. For the best experience, carry on past the waterfall to the lake at 11,900 ft! So serene, and we got to see our first mountain goat!

Wonderful trail. challenging in spots, beautiful and stunning. great moderate trail for hiking and birding

Breathtaking from the beginning!
Yes amazing as good as it gets!
Be sure to walk around the other side of the gold miner’s cabin you will see on the left on the way up the trail....tracks laid at a mine entrance. Takes your mind back to the days...

A new bridge was finished on this trail August 2018 by the United States Air Force Academy Class of 2019 Mechanical and Civil Engineering classes in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Wildlife. The plaque on one side is in honor of this major engineering achievement along the Mculliugh Gulch Trail near Breckenridge CO South on HY 9 almost to the beginning of Hoosier Pass.
The plaque on the other side honors Eric Dube a local physical therapust...outdoor enthusiast originally from near Boston who died suddenly from heart failure in November 2017. Eric was only 30 years old!

Very nice trail. Was looking for a loop in an area featuring a lot of out and back trails. Almost half this loop is along a forest service road - an unfortunate reality. After a bit, we bailed and doubled back along the original trail. Nice hike. Not a good loop trail.

Rock formations and soil color were beautiful. Not much shade.

Starts with a walk on a forest service road. Don’t despair - there is a real trail. It is beautiful. Don’t stop at the first sight of the falls. The trail keeps going to the top and then a bit further is the small lake that feeds the falls. Terrific views. Worth every bit of effort.

lots of different settings - river with mini waterfalls, open canyons and forested pine trees and Aspen's. hiked on tuesday 9/25 and not too crowded. walked from just under the highway overpass and it was just under 7.5 miles. did it in 2 hrs 40 minutes. turn around when you get to the cross

Great hike with beautiful views. We went around 9am on a Saturday and there were minimal people on the trail.

Beautiful views but I would definitely say this trail is more than moderate but not quite difficult . It’s easy to go off the trail with the different terrain but if you use the app you should be fine. I made it to the second lake which is definitely worth it. Extremely windy today and semi cold.

Gf & I are 26. We went with another couple after a week of moving here. Awesome trail, not to strenuous. Made it to the top in just under an hour after taking a couple 30-60sec rests. View at the top was amazing. Worth the hike 100% would go back and recommend to others.

Beautiful views at the top make this worth it. The hike itself is pretty and a decent quick workout, but there are prettier hikes in the park if you have limited time. I did this one with my dog since dogs aren’t allowed to hike in the park. It is a dry trail with no water sources for the pups, fyi. Wasn’t very crowded during the week. No bugs that I saw.

The ride up was spectacular!

This was a nice trail, easy to walk to from our condo.

I would say this trail is between easy and moderate. Going into the trail it is all downhill so coming back is pretty much all uphill. Lots of shade, nice views. Also no crowds and I got there around 9:30 am! If you have a vehicle with some ground clearance (small SUV and larger) you should be fine getting up the road.

Wanted to see some Aspens. There were none.

Beautiful hike! It is actually an easy hike with great surroundings. Easy to get to and good for kids if they are up to a 6 miles walk.
