    Dominic Torres reviewed Tilting Mesa to Mesa Top Loop

    The first incline is strenuous but the rest is not very difficult. Good views but I got tired of stopping to let bikes pass every couple minutes. Definitely won't be back.

    The first incline is strenuous but the rest of the hike is nothing. View is pretty nice.

    Dominic Torres reviewed Eagle's View Trail Loop

    Intensity is towards the higher end of Moderate maybe even Hard for the first half of the loop up Ravens Roost. The incline really kicked my ass. The intensity drops to Easy on the way back. Nice views but I enjoy a more consistent difficulty throughout a hike. Basically no snow or ice. Somewhat busy trail.

    What can I say? One of Colorado's very best hikes. Get there early or you wont get in. Short but strenuous and incredibly beautiful. The water almost looks tropical. Expect tons of people.

    Dominic Torres reviewed Dream Lake Trail

    8 months ago

    I did this hike at the end of February. I initially set out to go up to Emerald Lake as well but the snow was too deep after Dream Lake. Stopped at Nymph Lake on the way up. It was frigid cold, wind was howling (especially crossing the lake) but the views were beautiful. The only difficult part of this hike was crossing snow. Definitely want to come back now that it can be hiked without snowshoes. $20 to get in.

    Nice hike. Did this last September. Definitely on the easier side of Moderate. Nice and shady for most of the hike. The dam is awesome and a great place for lunch. Some nice views along the way as well.

    Dominic Torres reviewed Royal Arch Trail

    One of my absolute favorite hikes during the week and in the off season. During the warmer months and on weekends this drops far down my list with the amount of people on the trail. This is definitely on the higher end of the Moderate scale if not straight up Hard. This was slippery from when I went last October to this past week in April. Definitely recommend spikes or crampons, saw many people fall on their backs. The view from the Arch is beautiful and a great place for a rest and picnic.

    Dominic Torres reviewed Suprise Lake

    I really love this hike. I went up in early June last year. The first week I went there was a significant amount of snow. The next weekend had zero snow. Very scenic, away from any road noise and not very busy. There were a ton of downed trees in the trail but I had fun getting over them. There are also a few water crossings and one or two that are challenging. I would recommend wearing shoes that can dry out quickly in case you fall in. I wouldn't say this is a terribly difficult hike, I've gone up with friends that aren't fit and it just required more breaks. The lake itself is beautiful and totally worth the trek. I'd like to backpack up here this summer.

    Dominic Torres reviewed Black Bear Trail to Ralston Roost

    8 months ago

    I liked this trail. Definitely felt like more than 4.6 miles. The first incline is pretty tough but after that it's not so bad, especially through most the second part of the loop until towards the end. The rock scrambling was a lot of fun. I went in early March and there was a lot of ice still but passable without spikes. $7 to get in.

    Dominic Torres reviewed Mount Galbraith Loop via Cedar Gulch Trail

    I went on Thursday 4/12 at around noon. I really enjoyed this hike but we also had beautiful weather. Not far from Denver, parking lot was pretty full though. However, once on the trail I didn't see many people. Very scenic views of Golden. Was a relatively easy trail, I was going to do another loop but ran out of time. Took me about 2 hours and I took my time. Trail was marked pretty well except for a couple spots.

    Dominic Torres reviewed Beaver Brook and Chavez Trail Loop

    9 months ago

    Did this hike today. Was not strenuous at all for the first 3 miles but the intensity kicks up a bit for the last 2 when you get to Chavez. Took me about 2 hours with some breaks to admire the river. Doesn't have great views and the trail is marked very poorly. Saw a couple groups including myself get lost. However, admission is free and it was a decent trail so I will be back.
