Nice trail...we lost the trail at the very end but were able to find our way.

Loved this trail! Along a river with 15 ‘bridges’ that cross back and forth over the river. We were the only people on the trail.

Hiked this trail today and loved it. It has a little of everything. I went clockwise and enjoyed the ascent in the beginning. The view at the top was breathtaking. I didn’t expect to criss cross a creek several times after the descent. It was so fun! Great trail. I moved pretty quickly and completed it in an hour and a half.

Great hike. Had snow falling most of the time. Highly recommend.

Such a fun hike. The rock scramble and rock stairs were awesome. This entire trail was very scenic with gorgeous views of the foliage. Definitely a quick and fun one. We got done in an hour and a half.

This trail was perfect for a low key, woodsy hike with our two older dogs. We loved walking next to the babbling brook and crossing the bridges.

good but lots of poison ivy in places. we went clockwise which is moderate up hill at first. the rock lookout was very scenic.

Did the clockwise so hardest first. then sun behind us as we came down. nice hike.

Hiked this with my 70+ years old parents and they had no trouble. Took about 75 minutes. Absolutely great hike and would recommend. I don't think it matters much which way you take the loop as there are ups and downs both ways.

A semi-easy hike with foot bridges across a stream. Ended at the lake with a playground. We carried out toddler in a backpack no problem.

Beautiful area. Very easy. Great place for a picnic or to just sit and enjoy the calm.

Not what I expected. At first, well marked, than nothing. Trail would be good for 4 wheeling, not much else. Pretty much good for cow grazing. Small herds, 5 to 10 cows everywhere. Also cow pies all over. I am not experienced hiker, but would not recommend.

Been hitting it hard last few days. Haven’t been up with my dog since coyote sightings. Beautiful this morning. All fog covered when you hit BR

Buffalo wallows, buffalo dung, dung beetles, prairie dogs, lots of bluebirds. Poison Ivy last 300ft.of trail under the trees. Blue Asters and Rose Hips. Excellent weather for a hike.

great trail with good views.

Love it

Easy, typical campground trail at a beautiful lake.

this is four trails, with varying levels of difficulty, that originate and end at Buzzard's Roost. Beautiful view at the end.

Beautiful views of rock formations. Easy hike.

Great hike with lots of trail options for different difficulty levels. We were on a new trail that they were still working on and it was fantastic. View from the top is spectacular!

Interesting to walk through base of towering spires. Top/end of trail anticlimactic. Journey through spires best part of trail.

Gradual inclines with rock scramble near top. Beautiful 360 vista views at top. Quartz stones along trail provide good footings on slippery rocks. Seems like it'd be slippery if wet.

Great hike with some great views. It really puts the CSP Fire into perspective as you can’t see the effects much from the road. I recommend doing the trail clockwise.

Really nice hike through some different terrain. Took this trail counterclockwise and glad we did started with some and and downs and some even ground along a creek and yellowing aspens, very pretty. Outlook was about a mile from the end of our hike and was a great view. Climb the rocks and you will be rewarded with a lovely 360 view.

This was such a cute trail. We came upon it while camping right across the road. It was very near and it surprised us greatly. Down a little hidden path lands a small waterfall that is so calm and peaceful. Lots of places to climb and see. The trail we went on was only 2.5 miles but it ended up taking us 2 hours cause there was so much to see and do.

Great Hike following the steam. There are 13 steam crossing (one way) and some waterfalls. We really enjoyed the hike and scenery. Lots of poison ivy so keep an eye out for it.

Hiked this with my husband, mom and three boys (9, 5, & 2). Easy walking, a little section of going through rocks. Really neat to see the spires as it’s not our usual scenery. Definitely a must do hike in Custer State Park. I would not considerate it to be a strenuous hike as many of the literature states.
