Nice trail close to town with rocks and nature. Very enjoyable.

I made it halfway up Timberline Falls, but after seeing 2 gals above me slip and get hurt climbing the wet boulders I decided to stop and enjoy hiking another day. Kudos to those brave climbers. Still a great challenging hike with amazing views! I will enjoy the photos of those that made it to Sky Pond

Great afternoon hike, didn't get ticks and got a sweat up. The valley at the top is great for a picnic but pack light as the hike up can be hard. The dogs had a fun time!

Secluded and peaceful. Great views of rockies on the way.

Beautiful trail. Pretty easy but the farther you go in the more rocky it gets. Went to the end of the laughing horse loop & turned around due to ominous looking weather. I gotta go back and go farther next time.

wonderful trail!

Beautiful but very challenging! Did this hike on Saturday. Got to the trailhead at 9am. Took the Greyrock Trail to the summit then did that to the top, backtracked and then took the Greyrock Meadow trail back down. Definitely a difficult trail—lots of vertical climbing and the rocks at the summit were tough! Plenty of loose rocks too. I was glad I wore my good boots. The views were gorgeous and despite the warnings I didn’t encounter a single rattlesnake. Completed the entire thing in 4 hours.

Great hiking close to town. Beautiful views and some challenging spots that make it enjoyable.

Love but be cautious of rattle snakes !

Great trail, calm the first couple miles and a good workout on the loop. Garmin says about 8 miles round trip. Took me 2 hours, but I went clockwise (easier) on the loop.

Nice run.

Beautiful walk. We did the whole loop and it took almost 6 hours which includes a couple rest stops. We got to the waterfall, but decided not to climb up to Sky Pond. While we could have made it up there, I was just wearing sneakers so I was afraid coming back down would be too slippery. While a little disappointed that I didn’t complete the hike in full... it was still an amazing view from the top.

Good hike, went on a hot day so it was unfortunate that not much shade was available on the loop. The loop felt really long. Bring plenty of H2O!

Great short hike for an afternoon. The climb was exerting if you're not used to the altitude, but doable nonetheless. Watch close for the turn off the road! Easy to miss it.

NIce hike. no shade. Have done this one multiple times with my kids and dogs. Tend to see a lot of bikers on this trail.

Great hike for all levels and ages of hikers. No shade. Be cautious of snakes. Hear they are there but in the numerous times I have been out there thankfully have only encountered one time. We stay on trail though. Its pretty heavily trafficked.

This is a great trail for dogs, most of the trail is creek side.

Great trail, with amazing views!

Long trail. But definitely worth it

Long trail, and tough at the end. I’m a pretty fit 27 year old and the altitude combined with the rock climbing at the end up by the sky pond had me exhausted! The views are incredible and well worth it though, I’d definitely recommend this trail for anyone looking for a long day hike in the mountains. We arrived to the park at noon, parked fairly close to the entrance and caught two buses up to bear lake, the first to the park and ride, and the second up to bear lake as there was no parking up top. The buses were frequent so no complaints there!. It was crowded by Alberta falls and bear lake but around the rest of the trail there were only a few people. Loved it!

At some point they have re-routed this trail to make the left turn route a little less steep.... the entire hike with loop is 8.3 miles. At a ‘junction’ with the old trail, you can see evidence of where they filled the old trail with rocks. Long, steady incline if you go right... shorter, steeper incline if you go left(not too hard). Water levels low this year, so all stream crossings are easy. Friday morning, early July and only a few other hikers.

Good trail my 5yo and me being 7 months pregnant did it fine, while my 2yo walked the way back. he was carried on a toddler hiking backpack the way up. We did see one rattlesnake

great when you live in the area and just need out for a bit. easy hike! great for little ones too!

Lovely on a cool morning. Easy walk with a few slopes.

We started at 7:30 and got to the top pretty quickly, using the trail that forks to the right... the views are beautiful and you could easily spend another hour scrambling around on the rocks. On the way back down, we took the meadow trail and that took significantly more time. Reached the trailhead at 12:30.

Incredible! Added Andrews Glacier and Tarn for an epic half day hike!

Is a great ride by bike! Peaceful, quiet, you pass occasional riders or walkers but is not usually too congested. Has a few places to pull over by the river and sit and relax. Is well maintained. A huge plus to this trail is it runs right by some of Fort Collins best Breweries which make for some great pit stops! Love this trail!

Great path to take, enjoy it every time we take it. Runs near a couple of parks, goes right next to a great coffee shop. It gets you out to a path system that can get you right out to the reservoir! Great ride!
