Hiked this with my 70+ years old parents and they had no trouble. Took about 75 minutes. Absolutely great hike and would recommend. I don't think it matters much which way you take the loop as there are ups and downs both ways.

Beautiful scenery and fun to move fast on. Try doing a couple of laps.

badass

Great hike! Crossed the creek 13 times one way. Pool and falls at the end was beautiful.

Been hitting it hard last few days. Haven’t been up with my dog since coyote sightings. Beautiful this morning. All fog covered when you hit BR

Great path. Little narrow for the wife but the views were great and it was quite. Little rocky on the path so if you don’t have hiking shoes I don’t recommend. Saw a whitetail as well.

Great scenery. Our dog and kids love this trail.

very enjoyable. lots of shade, challenges and scenery.

Beautiful view. don't let your children run loose here.

this is four trails, with varying levels of difficulty, that originate and end at Buzzard's Roost. Beautiful view at the end.

Easy trail just outside of Rapid City. Great payoff at the end with expansive views. I have done this trail many times and have always had it to myself. If you can catch it on the right days you will be able to watch hot air balloons take off.

Great hike with lots of trail options for different difficulty levels. We were on a new trail that they were still working on and it was fantastic. View from the top is spectacular!

We hike seven hikes a week in the hills, for the past 10 years, this was the most overrated hike we have ever done. Would consider it moderate with zero markings and most disappointing for what we anticipated.

This was such a cute trail. We came upon it while camping right across the road. It was very near and it surprised us greatly. Down a little hidden path lands a small waterfall that is so calm and peaceful. Lots of places to climb and see. The trail we went on was only 2.5 miles but it ended up taking us 2 hours cause there was so much to see and do.

I'm not sure EASY is the right word- it's not very steep but is very technical. It's a great trail for kids who don't mind if their feet are wet and agile adults that are good at rock hopping. You cross the Creek several times and toward the top, there are areas of boulder-crawling and some steep scrambles. The area is extremely beautiful and completely worth the work, even with wet feet! Excellent choice for kids who get bored just plodding along on a trail.

Beautiful. Quickly became a favorite.

Beautiful view. Trash and graffiti are a disappointment.

Fantastic hike! The trail itself is quite easy, however some of the water crossings are quite slick. I was able to hike it with my 70lb Rhodesian Ridgeback, 7 year old and 12 year old with no issues. Most of the difficult parts have an easier path on the opposite side of the water, so keep that in mind. I only had to give my dog a boost twice. The only downside is that the hike is a crowded and popular one...so be prepared for a packed parking lot and lots of people on the trail at at the bath tub. We'll definitely be going back again!

Awesome hike!! Loved the bathtub at the end.

great hike, 95° hiked along creek, a cross the dam and then to the loop back to trailhead off Sheridan Lake Rd, long tunnel is ankle deep in water but fun, hiked to short tunnel also then back to trailhead

We hike this trail often. Love it!! Today was by far the most memorable time tho as we were hailed on twice and lightening struck within two football fields of us. Pretty crazy!

Beautiful hike. Surprised on the amount of children because myself and another adult found ourselves slipping slightly in several areas. The trail itself is short but you will come across several water crossing. There are several small but dangerous edges you will have to climb a bit on in order to get across. Towards the end when you're close to devil's bathtub you must go across the water and several large rocks to get there, no trail. I do not recommend taking young children or infants. Worth every stumble. You must go down the natural waterside!

This trail has amazing scenery, from around the lake, up on the ridge, and down in the valley. Only problem was we kept finding ourselves losing the trail due to all the switchbacks and poorly marked trails. It ended up being a 16 mile hike in approx 7-8 hours. We started out in coon hollow going towards the flume trail head.

Great for an easy hike. Stream runs beside the trail the whole way too. nice scenery.

Would be better if marked better

Very nice hike ,beware of slipping.

The stream was only 6 inches deep in most crossings. You can keep your feet dry if you don't slip off the rocks. But I would plan on getting wet feet. Bring hiking poles!
