challenging, at some points you're going up steps that are 1-2ft high. but the view is 100% worth it, and the lake is beautiful. don't go in it, tho, there are leeches!

Such a fun hike! Lots of rocks you climb up, it does get steep. It’s not a paved path at all which we loved. It can get crowded at the top with people trying to get pictures but it’s well worth it. We’d do this hike again in a heartbeat.

Pretty nice trail. Recommend going up blackbear to get the hard uphill out of the way. Very nice hike with light traffic.

Awesome trail!

Enjoyable hike! Little rocky and challenging at parts, but nothing too crazy. Dog friendly so expect to see a few 4-legged friends out there. Cool views!

Enjoyable, short, and a good exercise. Close to the road in Gregory canyon, but pretty scenery.

Great and challenging hike. Good elevation gain. Was able to do in about 3 hours. Quite a few trail runners, decent amount of wildlife too. Awesome views! You do have to pay for parking on the weekends, fyi.

Very pretty trail. A bit crowded, but not as crowded as I was expecting. I'd call this trail moderate rather than hard, and I'm of average shape. There were parts that were tough, but it's really short so that's why I'd say it's closer to the moderate side. I got to the parking lot by 8 am and it was full. However, there was plenty of parking along the street. It cost 2.50 per hour.

Ended up on this trail accidentally and boy was I kicking myself. Ambience was terrible; you spend more than half of the trek staring at the suburbs and listening to the highway. No shade whatsoever. Would absolutely not recommend. Giving 2 stars only because the trail is well-maintained compared to many, but I guess you'd have to expect that given that it's surrounded by city on almost all sides.

Quite the incline for about half way, but worth the view once you hit the overlook point! Going back down is a breeze!

This was a great hike. Fair amount of people, yet not crowded. Still peaceful and fun. Dog-friendly, with friendliest trial I’ve ever been on. Steep hike up, rocky and often narrow, little protection from the cliff, but worth it. Take it easy, rest. It’s a great afternoon. View of Crag’s Hotel and Continental Divide is spectacular. Oh, and stop in the river once you’ve come down.

8 dollar parking.

Good, fairly easy hike. Bring plenty of water. Weather changes quickly. Very pretty views of the valley.

Hit the trail at about 7am on a Saturday and it was great, not crowded but started to see more people in the way down, still not bad. Definitely strenuous, but I haven’t done many hikes lately so I’m not sure I’m the best judge. Pretty mellow first half until you climb between bear peak and south boulder peak, easy to hit both while you’re up there and each offers a little bit of a different view so definitely check both out (only adds like 20 minutes I’d say to the hike). Very pretty views and diverse vegetation from top to bottom which kept it interesting. My knees were shakin’ on the way down as there’s lots of rocks to go down but that’s only about 1/2 of the trail, as the first half is quite wide and gravelly. Would definitely do it again!

Nice laid out trail. Not technical but parts that are exposed are warm.

Definitely some nice elevation gain with this one! I started at Gregory Canyon and ended on Flagstaff. First mile or so was all uphill and included some rock scrambling. Saw lots of wildlife including a deer. Rangview was also a lovely little hike. Ending with the Flagstaff trail, this is the part everyone speaks of that runs along the road and requires several road crossings. I didn't necessarily find the traffic bothersome but finding the trail after crossing the road could be somewhat difficult, however the alltrails map is super helpful. Would definitely do this hike again! I enjoyed the scenic views of Boulder and the challenge this hike provided.

Great views and moderately difficult

Great trail!

This is a short but challenging hike. Great views along the way and at the top. The hike up will get your heart going. The hike down seemed almost as hard, especially on the knees. There are lots of trails in this area. Pay careful attention to your route to the base of this trailhead as there are several that will bring you here.

This trail is rated difficult for a reason. Tons of large rocks and quick elevation gain. If you have balance issues or are afraid of heights I would say don’t do. The views at the end are fabulous though, great workout! Beware of small area that would almost qualify as rock climbing and not hiking although once you got up wasn’t that bad because of the hand and foot holds they added. Fairly heavily trafficked trail also..

Very windy and I almost stepped on a tiny baby Rattler on the trail! A bit unnerving.

Grew up hiking these hills. Would suggest early morning or evening jaunts to avoid the heat. It can still get very warm here even though you are in the mountains.

Great hike. Offers a challenge but not too steep - it was fairly easy taking it slow. The trail has plenty of coverage and great views! Fairly busy but we were able to avoid most traffic by getting there in the morning. The loop is less busy than the main out & back trail. $8 to enter El Dorado park.

Gorgeous view. Great walk from the town up to Red Rock.

Great hike awesome view from the arch. steep in places and rocky. worth the trip.

BOTH DOGS GOT BITTEN BY RATTLESNAKES DO NOT GO IN THIS TRAIL, ALSO NOT A SPECTACULAR TRAIL SO DONT BOTHER

Great trail, hard climb, worth every step

they don't allow dogs so if you plan on bringing your first baby don't go here
