Not worth it in December, still have to pay $10 to get in and the trails and discussing with goose poop. Go somewhere else and skip this crap trail.

The trail was great yesterday! Partly snow covered but not difficult to manage at all. Views are killer. Wasn’t too busy either.

Beautiful and dynamic sights.

Today the view was spectacular. The trail to the summit was 1/2 dry and 1/2 covered with a light dusting of dry snow that was crunchy but not sloppy or icy at all. The snow was less than 1/2” deep.

Back part is very icey. You will fall unless you have proper foot gear. Some ice in the middle too. Still some good runnable areas. Pretty views. Decent climb.

Icy in spots but clear path overall; wore traction going down. Beautiful trail

Great moderate hike. Not much snow today. took about 2 hours including a break at the top and I had a baby on my back. A great view once you get to the top and some nice aspens along the way....somebody even left a pre-rolled out there.

Only saw a few people in the distance on this one. not much traffic on Friday at 1pm.

*bonus*

Excellent hike that you would never know is back here just driving by! Lots to see and explore. Weather was bright and sunny, a touch cold in the shade and up on the rim when the wind picked up, but not uncomfortably cold if you're dressed well in layers. Saw a lot of turkey tracks, a small cat track and some deer eating. The beautiful views here make for some really great pictures. There was a bit of ice under the snow lining the trail coming down from the rim, but if you have a sturdy boot and tread carefully, you'll be fine. Overall thoroughly enjoyed this hike and will be back to explore further.

It was a warm day (60!) but most of Plymouth Creek between Meadowlark and and the upper loop was icy and muddy. If you bring your dog, be prepared to give a bath! Meadowlark was dry and clear, but no views - just trees.

First half of the trail is super icy but once the sun hits you up top it’s beautiful and easy.

Lots of ice on Apex and Enchanted Forest Trail, so take your spikes!!!

Loved this trail for the bighorn sheep!

Short and steep, but great views at the top! Winds were a little crazy today, so didn’t spend too much time up top. Some icy spots on the trail that spikes may have been useful for, but managed just fine.

Pretty trail but a bit crowded and narrow. Lots of bikers so pay attention.

This is a great hike to do in the winter. The trail is easy to follow even with fresh snow and it may be the only time of year you don't have to fight for a parking spot. Nice steady climb to Evergreen Mountain through very thick forest. Some nice views from the top of Evergreen. Currently a lot of snow and some icy spots. Although we did not break out the Yak Trax they would have come in handy. This is a nice hike close to Denver,l Just keep in mind it gets very crowded when the weather is nice.

Did this hike at the end of September. Loved the waterfalls! The views on both sides of the trail were stunning. On the North side we could see white mountain goats grazing along the ridge. So many views on this trail.

Love this trail! It has the perfect balance of climbing and down hill running.

Wonderful hike to the top with my 8and 4 year old children 6/4/16. Great views of the water falls!!

A fun hike with Kalina Miller today on this easy to find trail with some excellent views. The inclines are not so steep really and there are some nice level sections and a few short downhills. Enjoy the scenery and take lots of pics.

Such a fun little trail! Small bit of scrambling to the rocks at the top. Spikes were useful but probably not required today. Lovely views. Port-o-let at the trailhead. (I always find it useful know!)

This trail was an awesome, snowy workout. I could potentially rate it a 5 after another visit, but with the sky dumping buckets of snow there was just no view, so I couldn’t get the whole picture. The snow sure made for its own beautiful spectacle, though, 6-8+ inches on the ground and snowing during the whole hike. We worked counterclockwise, and parts of the ascent were a bit slippery and tricky in the snow. The decent was very gradual and easy breezy, quite picturesque. We saw maybe 15 people during the 2 hours, 45 minutes it took us, which is unusual for this normally very popular spot. All in all, the views may have been nonexistent in the snowstorm, but it’s definitely worth it for a great workout and general good time.

I did this hike yesterday (11/11) and the trail was snow covered. It was very pretty with all the snow. We didn’t do the entire trail but enjoyed the portion we did do. I did it fine with nice snow boots but it was a little slippery at times. My friend had crampons on her shoes and they seemed to work well. Snow shoes would have been overkill

It's a short one, but great for a morning away. Had the trail to myself and didn't see anyone til I got back to the parking lot. No snow yet, but the incline is real! Views are amazing at the top (minus the mansions built into the mountainsides).

Ugh, I am waffling between 3 and 4 stars. I would give 3.5 if I could. Here are the details...

PROS: Clean, great pathways (although gets narrow on way back), TONS of bathrooms (yes!) pit toilets, so they are open, pretty quiet, even though you do walk near a road, long distance.

CONS: Some parts of the path were NOT marked well...you must go down a path and see if you are right and find another sign. OR just look on the all trails app (you will still have signal, which is nice)
The path is sort of boring (at least in November, not sure about spring/summer!) and the best part was ascending up the hill to see Red Rocks and the Denver skyline.
THE START OF THE PATH WAS NOT CLEAR! You park and go across the street to the start of the path, not directly where you park! We thought we were right and we were not starting right...ugh, had to start a few times.
$10 entrance fee (although, apparently there are ways around it)

PRO/CON: No shade (depends on time of year!! Could be pro OR con!)


SUMMARY: All in all, a "good" hike, but not one I will do again, especially with the $10 entrance fee!
If you live in the area and have a yearly pass, this would be great for you. This is fairly flat, with just a few incline spots.

The bighorn sheep are totally worth the hike. I couldn’t believe how close we got to them. I could have reached over and petted one had I not been so petrified that one would ram me!!

Love this trail. Forest provides great shade in the summer. Not too crowded but you do need to watch out for bikes (and vice versa) as visibility isn’t great in some areas.

There is very minimal snow on the sides of the trail and some of the standing water is starting to ice over, but no issues for walking through the trails. This hike met my craving for getting out and about, but the trails are definitely on the east side. It’s more like a walk that a hike that gets your heart pumping. Similar to other reviews, it is easy to take another unintended path and end up back at your car sooner than expected. I did enjoy the views of the mountains and overlooking evergreen high school. Overall the hike was enjoyable, but I probably wouldn’t do it again.
