Great hike! Did get steep at some parts but the view at the top is amazing. You must go all the way to the top —you won’t regret it!

Starts out in a neighborhood. You don’t really lose the highway sounds during this hike. No shade along the trail. It gets a nice view of Golden, and is good for when you want a quick hike close to Denver. Nothing spectacular.

Easy fun hike! The neighbors in the area are super friendly.

Did this trail after some snow, beautiful on the way up and at the top! Gets pretty steep and challenging towards the tree line, be prepared to stop and catch your breath. Because of the snow, I was not able to make it all the way to the top (did not have the right equipment) but above tree line the views are still amazing. Definitely doing this again later with the right equipment to reach the top! I can easily say this is my favorite spot now in Colorado.

The reward at the end of this hike is so worth it. You get a 360 degree view! Breathtaking! The hike is moderate but if your not use to the altitude there are small spots that can be difficult. Rest take your time, enjoy the quiet and beauty along the way.

Great hike! Views the entire way up and down. Good trail running once you’re at the loop. Left around 10am and back to the car at 11:20.

Great trail. Trees that folks mentioned earlier have been cleared. Lots of water crossings. Recommend starting the trail on Waterboard Road (128) rather than at Bonfils. Trailhead on 128 is clearly marked and there is parking.

Beautiful trail with a medium crowd. Moderate is an accurate rating. Aspens were beautiful!!

great trail. great views

#twoenthusiasticthumbsup! start early and enjoy the views and a lunch at the top.

nice Sunday walk, the aspens are changing and there were lots of places to stop and take pictures. a little bit busy

We did just the beginning part of the trail due to time constraints, but loved the fall colors! Gorgeous hike.

Crags trail is beautiful especially in the fall. The 360 view on the top was amazing and so worth the hike. It’s a little hard to tell where to stop but make sure you follow the trail up to the top! Great trail. One of my favorites so far!

We really enjoyed this hike! It’s not a bad hike for beginners and offers really nice views of downtown, Red Rocks, and the mountains!

Excellent trail, with great panoramic view at the end.

The aspens are beautiful and we caught the meadow in beautiful late afternoon light. Not too many people on the trail, especially once we got to the loop. Not too difficult and a quick drive from Denver.

Great hike! fall colors were awesome.

After following the advice re: going to dead-end of road and following 'old' trail to meet up with the new Crag's trail, I recommend to all who are not familiar with areas they will be hiking to use extreme caution/avoid attempting to utilize old' trails. The further I hiked from the trailhead the worse the condition of this old trail became to the point where 'guess-timation' kicked in (should have turned back at this point). After a bit of this, I decided against continuing so turned back and began my attempt to retrace my path only to discover that numerous washed out, dead-ended trails and false 'paths' resembled the 'old' trail.

If you have hiked certain areas for awhile, or enough in the past as to recognize other landmarks to guide you back to the trailhead,...then you may very well do okay. But for newcomers to areas to attempt to do so...on your way back toward dusk, or simply hours later after the sun's position has changed and the shadows under trees canopy distort the very slight markings which might/might not be the old 'trail', or, your memory of it's very slight existence becomes muddled,...be advised: the apprehension/possibility of spending a night in the woods only to pick up where you left off in the morning is not worth cutting off a smidgen of your hike to avoid a strenuous portion of a new trail.

Lots of rocks, good incline, did not get all the way to the top. My dog was not feeling so good. Pretty views. I think it would be better early in the morning watch the sun come up. Will do again for sure.

Great hike. It was very crowded and there were a decent amount of mountain bikers. The trail was slightly washed out in spots which made it difficult to hike. The view at the top was beautiful and the Aspens were starting to change. The elevation gain was tough but the view made the climb worth it.

Spectacular!

Nice easy hike when you are short on time. We didn’t do the whole thing because of that reason, but it’s an easy hike up. Nice views of the city and mountains in the distance. Great workout

It was a good trail for hiking. Lots of rocks, didn't wear the proper shoes for this trail. Very nice work out and got the blood pumping. Would do this hike again.

Just go! And don’t stop until you get the views of the continental divide! Bring water, prepare for some good elevation & a bit of wind. But you’ll reach the top!

Stunning views along the way, but the 360 at the top is icing on the cake. Get there early, the lot fills up fast, but you can always park at the lot for Raspberry Mtn and walk up the road a bit. It was hard to tell where our destination would be when we first started, but as you start the climb towards the end just make sure not to stop until you reach the top!
