Currently packed snow and ice on most of the trails. Microspikes recommended.

Snow and ice on the incline, but still very doable. I would've liked my yaktraks on the way down the Barr trail. It took me 1 hr 26 minutes to make it to the top and less than an hour down the Barr trail. I've been in Colorado for about a month - the altitude was the biggest challenge.

A fantastic climb with a great summit.

WHAT A WORKOUT!!! Per the placard: 2768 steps, 2K elevation gain and .88 miles.

I am definitely out of shape and completed this in 53 minutes including a plethora of of water and quick bite breaks; after the 1800 mark I did a break every 200 steps until the 2500 mark.

There was some snow and a bit of ice on the left hand side of the stair (while going up) but nothing that made for trouble with just my vans outdoor shoes.

Great hike!

I hiked this on 11/2/18 starting out at 10:30 and made it to the top in about one hour. I am an avid hiker and have hiked several 14ers here in CO. This hike was definitely an ass kicker even for someone that works out almost daily! Take plenty of water and be prepared for snow and ice this time of year. It’s really slippery and muddy heading down!

gnarly trail, view at top legendary

This hike will probably take longer than you think. It is quite steep. Views at the beginning are expansive, the middle section is a tough climb in the trees with few views, and the end section once you gain the ridge has views back towards Boulder and also east to the Indian Peaks. From the Bear Peak summit you can probably pick out your house if you live in Boulder, the view is that unobstructed.

This trail was fantastic but we went the day after it snowed and as the steps narrowed and got higher in between each step, the ice was thicker. It was still amazing but would absolutely think twice about hiking when icy.

It is a great hike. Can't wait to do it again on the next trip out.

Very hard on the way up. Not sure if I’d suggest running down the trail. It’s fairly steep at some points.

on Green Mountain Loop

We hiked from the base of Chautauqua to Ski Jump, Bluebell-Baird, Amphitheater, Gregory Canyon, Ranger, E.M. Greenman, Saddle Rock and then Amphitheater and back to the base. We hiked it counter-clockwise and it was about 8 miles in total. It's steep and strenuous in the beginning until you get to Ranger and then it levels out for about a mile or so before beginning the route up the summit. It's a really beautiful trail with views of Boulder and Indian Mountains. It'll be crowded in the beginning, but then will level off.
One thing to note is right now E.M. Greenman is not allowing dogs, so you have to just go for it or hike the way you came up. Also, there's a ladder on Saddle Rock due to the flood damage, but there is a path around it to the left going down that the dogs can easily get down using vs. the ladder.

steep but quick

Great hike! I will be back for the incline and continue to pikes peak and back.

More difficult than expected but completely worth it!!

There are many poorly marked intersections. At one point we came to a dead end and had to turn around and backtrack to the closest fork and take the other path. We didn’t even end up making it to Bear Peak.

interesting and varied hike which takes you through all kinds of terrains. challenging but worth it for the views!

Great hike, great workout. View at the top is worth it. Took our group around an hour to get to the top of the stairs and another hour and twenty minutes to hike back down Barr trail.

Awesome hike!

best starter hike in colorado

The loop we followed was Chautauqua to Meadow to Gregory Canyon to Ranger to the summit of Green Mountain to E.M. Greenman to Saddle Rock to Gregory Canyon to Meadow - almost 10miles. Very strenuous on the way up, took almost four hours to summit - we are not from this altitude. Absolutely stunning and worth every grueling bit :)

Mentally and physically challenging!! Don’t give up, best reward is to get to the top!

Don’t give up! It is the best feeling ever when you get to the top❤️

Hiked 10/4. Mesa trail to fern. Strenuous constant uphill the last mile. Fun scramble at the top!

Love this hike!!

So much fun!!!

Beautiful views at the top. I ascended via Gregory Canyon and descended via Saddle Rock/ Ampitheater. The trail was difficult but doable. I encountered quite a few trail runners in each direction.

If you aren't used to the altitude or a high cardio work out, this is a ass-kicker.

Freakin intense.- but when you feel like you’re gonna give up, keep going!
