Hiked this afternoon with a pup. If you’re gunna bring a dog, I’d make sure you unleash them for some sections. Gets rather technical with snow and they may pose a risk if on leash. Overall great hike. Gives some great views of the mountain range. Don’t have to but microspikes May be a nice addition for the trail conditions right about now.

Pretty slick and snowy, but well worth it.

This has been rebuilt and much steeper than before!!! Trail is going from rock step to rock step and kinda like doing high hurdles... lifting each foot up high but worth it

Great first hike of 2019! I really recommend microspikes as it is slick and icy.

Need spikes right now on this one.

A good balance between snow and dirt trail, easy to follow. Wear yacktrax.

Challenging climb but worth it!

Trail was well covered with ice and snow. I went snowshoeing after the storm to work in a quick hike. I was really surprised for the amount of snow. Probably could have done the whole trail with spikes and you would be okay. Best been to get there really early to get the best work of the snowshoes

My favorite mt in Denver Metro although usually prefer from the housing area using Nightbird trail rather than Canyon because you have a great view of Downtowm Golden, Coors, and both North and South Table Mts...very rocky and medium steepness

trail was snowy so we walked the road up. saw a herd of deer! pretty hike and really easy.

Great for hiking in the snow! absolutely beautiful. Trafficked but not heavily. I will be back soon.

Very icy near the top. A bit of a scramble too, most dogs wont make it the last .4

Completed 1/15. Pretty snowpacked with ice in some spots. Needed spikes almost the entire way. Beautiful winter hike!!

Fun trail! Packed with snow but beautiful nonetheless. For some areas having trekking poles would make it easier.

Great view, fun hike. There were some parts where I wished I had grips for a little extra traction in the snow but you can get by without them. I’ll definitely be going back when the weather has changed to see how the trail is then and maybe even while the snow is still around.

Rangers recommmended that I did not go up the royal arch without micro spikes! Flat irons loop was icy and snowy as it is!

Icy and snowy on trails! Need micro spikes or at the very least hiking shoes!

I hit this trail around 1:30 on Saturday afternoon, fresh snow from the day before made for a beautiful and peaceful hike! I had my snowshoes with but did not need them. took around 1 1/2hrs at a casual pace, with a few minor detours.

Hiked 1/12/2019. Lots of snow, microspikes are helpful. Trail is easy to find. Started at 8:30am, only passed a few people coming up, but trail was busy on our descent.

trail is snow covered but not icy! beautiful as can be!

We did this on New Year's Day after fresh snow and the views were absolutely stunning. My favorite Boulder trail that week. Added the Chapman loop to it.

a challenging hike especially if you’re not used to the elevation. Incline right away and pretty much the whole time, but definitely worth it.

Definetly the hardest hike I’ve been on, bring lots of water and a small snack. If you’re from the Midwest like myself be prepared for the elevation difference, lots of yawns.

Few icy spots in the beginning so be careful but it’s worth it

We saw 20-30 other groups out on this trail during our 3 hour hike today. Gorgeous views. No snow on the trail, but icy in spots as was mentioned a few days ago.

We started at the Beaver Brook trail which is 3 miles downhill and back up the Chavez which was 2 miles uphill. We went 1/6/19 and there trail had some snow and ice in some areas. The trail is a mix of flat trail, rocks you need to hug or climb over and crossing streams. Just be mindful that the last 2 miles have quite an incline uphill and it’s not easy. I am looking forward to doing it again in summer as it is well shaded and I may be in better shape

Fun hike with the pup

Parking lot was crowded when we arrived at 12:30 on Saturday. Nice easy trail with great views of the foothills.

Amazing trail you have to try. Little bit everything on this hike. It was bit sketchy in some areas because of snow and ice over some rocks, but overall it’s a great trail and will be back.

Beautiful views! Great hike to bring the dogs with on a leash.
