Lovely and pleasant 2.5hour walk through the forest, so quiet and peaceful. Didn’t come across too many people. Path was mostly good although some areas rather icy - we managed with good walking shoes but would recommend stabilizers. Not that strenuous, but a good bit of exercise!

Bring micro spikes! Windy ledges but just be smart about it

2.10.18 - stunning scenery during light snowfall. traction advised for the next few days as the path gets really narrow with a steep drop off to one side. great gains and altitude peak of over 7100 ft.

Hiked today with cramp ons! It was a great day! Trail was icy but with the cramps it was perfect! Nice workout

Great workout and winding trail but not much of a view.

Very fun trail! A bit icy so plan accordingly

Icy in spots, poles and traction recommended. Great afternoon hike

This trail was a lot of fun in the snow! It was beautiful. The trail changes elevation often during the loop and gives a good workout.

This trail was an awesome moderate hike! Awesome for the kind you want to do leisurely and chat with your pals. Not a lot of outstanding, spectacular views like some of those Colorado hikes, but beautiful nonetheless. Highly recommended if you want do have a nice hike in the woods.

Beautiful trail. Falls were frozen but you could hear a small stream of running water. Nice vistas on the cliff loop trail. Can’t wait to go back!

Nice close to the city quick hike. Frozen falls/creek was cool. Some icy spots but micro spikes were not needed.

Great trail! Very dog friendly. Lots of people. Not too much snow or ice. Falls are frozen. Totally gorgeous view.

This might be my new favorite hike in the area. So close, but you follow a creek through trees and meadows, passing over bridges every now and then. No spectacular views or anything, but if you want to get outside without a long drive, it's a great option. The creek is frozen right now, so a few spots can get pretty icy, just to be aware.

Great trail. Gives you all types of scenery to enjoy.

Pretty, forested hike! Starting out with much descent, you know you’re gonna have to climb later, but even on a Sunday midday felt like I had the trail mostly to myself. So, the ascent was worth it :) Wear good hiking shoes and long pants so the parts with brush don’t scratch your legs.

The entire trail is pretty steep but totally worth it in the end. Also, quite nice not needing to pay to get into RMNP! Don’t forget to brink a picnic!

Great forest hike. Downhill first, uphill for the rest. Finished it in two hours or so.

Nice trail for a quick afternoon hike. Went in December, some snow and ice in shady areas. Not too crowded.

I’m definitely wearing my hiking boots next time. It looks like there was some recent flooding that had frozen and blocked some areas of the trail, so I had to either attempt to cross the slick ice or fight shrubbery to continue on. The trails could also be a bit better marked; I found myself backtracking a few times because I’d chased a rabbit trail. Overall, nice solitary hike close to Denver.

Wonderful trail through the woods
