Hiked this the day after arriving in Denver. Good warm up hike.

Beautiful hike! Snowing the day I did it, microspikes came in handy.

Really great views of Boulder. Definitely an asskicker at times, though not always. Trail was in good condition, with lots of people taking advantage of perfect hiking conditions.

It’s a paved road to the top with many trailheads from the paved, main road. Lots of beautiful options and chances to get your dog off leash if desired.

The definitive Boulder workout. One of the first to try if you are only here for a short while!

Trail was closed today. Hiked this before with my dog and she loved being off leash with the cows. Special dog tag for voice control needed for off leash capability.

I did this one in summer, pretty heavily trafficked but it is nice and cozy to walk around the lake.

Great trail and beautiful views.

great hike! be sure to wear layers as it is extremely windy at the top by the lake. few patches of ice

Amazing fog this am with snow flakes. Trails dry with friendly people and amazing views. Happy Thursday m8y's Oiiiii

Decent hike that starts with a mild incline, then fluctuates with ups and downs. Nice mellow hike, no real view points. Good for staying close to Denver. Some of the trails are blocked off so it was easy to get turned around, navigating with AllTrails was needed to get to the right place.

Lots of steps up (45 min) but worth the reward. Easy hike down.

Took me 3 hours 48 min. I ran ~4 miles and hiked the rest. Good views at beginning and end. Middle chunk gets a little bland.

Great views of Boulder. Decently trafficked by people and easy to find the trail. Around the peak it does get pretty rocky so good shoes and sure footing is highly recommended. Haven’t hiked in awhile and did the loop in a 1 1/2 hours with a longer break at the top.

Gorgeous trail. Strongly disagree with the "hard" rating-- it's difficult for a relatively short period of time, so I think it's more in the moderate category. It was actually rated moderate on alltrails until about a month or two ago.. not sure why it was changed.

This trail is short, energizing and has better views than some of the even harder trails in Boulder.

Went on Memorial Day and it was a great place to hang out for the day. Seeing the dam flow on the east side of trail is cool.

If you are going to do this hike as a loop , I would recommend going up Mount Sanitas and returning Sanitas Valley .

Great hike.

Great local hike. Lots of doggos on the trail enjoying the best of life.

Fun trail. Great views, scramble up the back side of gem wall of you're comfortable for a stunning 360 degree view.

So beautiful- if you start in the second lot, the climb is steeper. Got a bit confused following the map, because the upper loop was closed in places.

This trail freakin rocks! Awesome open areas and great trails! Highly recommend this trail!

Super dope! So many trails and beautiful scenery!

Fun trail for a quick hike. Clean and not too tough.

This is a great little hike. It’s pretty steep and gets the heart pumping. There are great views of Boulder along the way, and spectacular views from the top. Definitely worth the climb.

Beautiful views!!

We did the short ~2 or 2.5 mile loop.
It was ok. Easy for out of towners but not much to see unless you do the longer loops. Part of the forest was being thinned intentionally by the park service. Equipment and sights of the road took away from the experience. It is a gravel/rock path and very exposed to the sun in midday so bring sunscreen, hat, plenty of water anyway.

Cows grazing freely which was interesting. Mountain bikers to be cautious of and let pass. Dogs on leash.

$5 parking for non Boulder residents or you can get the $25 year pass online ahead of time.

Pretty basic/boring/easy hike. The only excitement on this hike were the cows....

Definitely and amazing view once you get to the top. Hiked this trailed multiple times! The trail tends to get extremely muddy and slippery after a snow day, but well worth the challenge!

Beautiful views!!

pretty short, but intense hike going up. cool views of Boulder
