Great hike. Nice view.
Not very busy for a Sunday.
I hiked along with my 12 year old daughter she loved it.

4 stars for the sunset, but the hike was not anything challenging or awe inspiring though. Short enough to watch a sunset at the top but not be caught out after nightfall long enough to need a headlamp or anything. Fairly short, easy hike close to Denver!

Great hike for just enough resistance so you don’t feel like you’re just nature walking. The view at the end was very pretty, definitely glad we took this one as I’m sick and my hiking buddy was from out of town and not used to the altitude

Up hill for a good chunk so it does challenge you a bit. Fun. Nice views but it was the same view the whole time.

Harder than I expected, but a beautiful trail. Very shaded. The incline on the way up was hard for my new to Colorado lungs but I definitely want to go back. Watch out for a lot of bikers though. Also, limited parking at the base. And if you're coming from Denver, it's a short and gorgeous drive!

Beautiful views, aspens are just starting to turn!

Beautiful Trail with a fantastic view at the top. Would definitely do this one again!

This was mine and my family'a first hike! it was amazing but is a little more difficult than expected. The last inclin up was hard but well worth the view and the accomplishment! Definitely going to do a return trip up here!

Nice hike with a decent climb to the top which has a great vista. Walk though the wooded area was peaceful and cool. Easy to get to from 470 using 285 S. Well marked. All Trails worked great.

This was the first hike I've ever done in the National Parks. While it looks shorter then it is, I made it to the top. My lungs were on fire, but the views made it totally worth it. I have the hiking bug now and need to go hiking much more often.

Nice loop trail with plenty of open space and good views. Good climb if you do it counter clockwise but the view is worth it.

If you choose to do the full loop, go clockwise.

This trail should really be rated "moderate", as it was quite challenging at times. It is also NOT a loop. In and out is how it goes.

Lots of shade, which is great when you go in the middle of the day like we did. Also because we went in the middle of the day, on a Sunday, it was quite busy. The path is very narrow at some points requiring either you or them to pull off to the side for passing people. It took us about an hr up, and 45 ish down. The view up top is well worth the hike. It is quite beautiful!! Parking was difficult at busy times because it only has a small lot at the trailhead, which fills fast. We parked along the street.

If you looking for a heart pumping hike that won't kill you if your not an avid hiker, you will like this trail.

This trail was absolutely amazing. It wasn't too difficult but still posed a challenge. The trail was well marked and really clean. Once you get up to the top,
( which took me about an hour) you get a beautiful view. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants to go on a nice little hike with their family.

This was a nice easy hike not too far away from Denver. The trail head has its own parking lot, but there isn’t a bathroom at this trailhead.

The hike itself is very pretty. You start next to a stream and head through the woods before going uphill to the point. Signage is very clear.

Unless I’m missing something, there was no loop at the point. Once we saw the views we came back from the same way we started. The distance is still about 3 Miles total.

Easy, pretty, and fun for all ages/ ability levels!

First I would like to say that if you’re coming from the Corwina Park parking lot that there is NO loop! We went up to Panorama Point thinking we could take it back down on a loop like AllTrails show on the map view and there was no trail to be found. So this was an in and out trail for us.

Secondly this is more of and easy/moderate hike. Short trail but very steep and rocky for a good mile with not much leg up. I will say although I was worried my 5 year old wouldn’t make it she did!

Lastly the payoff was nice but not amazing. Glad we did it. Any day hiking is a great day!

If you are looking for a more strenuous hike go up the Mcklintock side and come down the Enchanted Mesa side. For a more relaxed hike go up enchanted and down mcklintock.
Either way a great hike!

Amazing views at the top! You can see all the way to pikes peak. I don’t suggest going up via eagles/ravens side. It’s super steep and not well shaded. The oxen trail is a much better way up.

Great little hike! The views from the point are breathtaking. First portion is easy, filled with wildflowers and lots of shade. The trek up to the point was more rocky but not too steep. Light traffic for a Monday morning!

Great day hike. Not technical at all, easy trail to walk. Lots of vertical up and down, almost no flat except at the top. Great scenic view at the look out.

climbing in the beginning, then in the woods but not much exciting to see.

I hiked this at about 2 pm and it was about 90 degrees out. I don't think there was enough shade for the heat. You have to pay $5 for parking. I got sort of lost at the end. The path just ends and then another trail starts from left to right so I just turned around and walked back. I guess there's a way to loop around but I decided to just walk back. It was pretty fun and challenging.

Very nice, relaxing hike with absolutely FABULOUS views for no more difficult than it is. Can’t wait to do it with my family so they can experience amazing Colorado scenery without hiking into the back country. Really, really enjoyed it!

May hike. Very slight incline but totally doable for my MIL visiting from sea-level. Great views from farther of the flatirons and of the city of Boulder.

I did this trail right before sunset and it was beautiful! I left a little bit before the sky became extremely colorful so now I want to go tomorrow and stay later! I definitely recommend doing some nearby trails first, then ending with this trail. Only passed two people the entire time I was on this trail and there’s multiple lookout points for scenic views and fabulous pictures.

Great hike with lots of parking, restrooms, and a variety of inclines and beautiful views. Highly recommended. Not too far from Denver and great for late morning hikes. Dead horse is just remnants, not smelly at all but sort of creepy.

Awesome place with amazing views. We ran into a black bear on the first 1/4 mile of the hike. Poor guy must’ve been lost, Park rangers said we were the third sighting (one was on the road) . We went early afternoon and there wasn’t a crazy amount of people. Apparently the park rangers just cleaned up a dead horse but the smell is still there. Overall a good find and great hike. ( I had my 7 month old puppy with me too)

A great little day hike!

This instantly became my favorite local hike when I came over the hill & saw the view at the end.. fantastic, so many layers of mountains, so peaceful (I went at 6pm on a Sunday and I saw no one the entire time). The first mile is no joke though, very steep, otherwise easy.

Next time I'll make this an out-and-back rather than a loop by taking the left fork to the overlook & then turning around, that's where all the scenery is.

The hike was amazing and we were not bothered by nor saw the deceased horse. The sights were spectacular. Hike was not tough at all! A bit step at parts. Otherwise I would recommend for for children. We saw a few and they had no problems whatsoever.
