    Deciding to hike this after tons of rain maybe wasn't the best choice. Very muddy, so dress accordingly. The waterfall was fun, but had a very strong current after all the rain. I'm glad we hiked it only because the waterfall was pretty, but not my favorite hike.

    Very beautiful trail. Enjoyed reading the historical information on the way. Waterfall isn't always available to swim in so you may want to call ahead and check if it's open. You can still walk to it, but if the water is rushing too hard, no swimming.

    The only negative was the price and that we didn't know the area was closed to swimming for the day.

    The view at the end was beautiful. Not my favorite type of hike as about 2 miles of it was on dirt roads, and the path was very narrow and rocky in other places. Glad I did it though as the view of Pikes Peak was gorgeous and very peaceful.

    Beautiful hike from start to finish. Highly recommend. It wasn't as crowded as some other hikes which made it nice too.

    This hike had some great views, but was very crowded. Preferred other hikes in the area much more than this one. You had to park very far away and then were pushed along through the hike because of the swarms of people. Save your time, pick a different hike.

    Quick trail to a beautiful destination. We were lucky enough to be the only ones there today. Worth the drive from the springs.

    Updated: We just went back in January and the cove was beautiful. Covered in ice, it made it really special.

    A great, quick hike. Good views all the way to the top. The top was a nice spot to stop and enjoy all of Colorado Springs.

    A difficult hike as it's steep most of the way up (and even on some parts on the way back down), but when you get to the top, it's beautiful. Look for the turn that has a sign for the Crags. It's on the same road.

    Enjoyable hike. We did turn back before the end though because the trail got very narrow on an open space and didn't seem safe. Other than that very end part, the trail was great.

    A difficult hike for sure. On steep parts of the sand you slide back making your progress slower. It's rewarding to make it to the top, though! There is a stream before the dunes that you have to cross (meaning removal of shoes or you'll have soaked feet) but it is nice to cool your feet on the return walk. There are lots of mosquitoes around the parking area so you probably want some bug spray!

    Not recommended for a tourist who has not acclimated to the altitude. This is a steep trail (I had to use my hands at times to make sure I didn't fall backwards) and if you start to feel altitude sickness, it could get dangerous.

    That being said, if you are acclimated and in decent shape you can do this! Slow and steady worked for me. Took me almost 2 hours to the top, but I stopped quite a bit to catch my breath.

    The Barr Trail back down had some spectacular views as well.

    An easy trail good for families. The trail follows close to the road a lot of the time, so if you're looking for a peaceful trail this is not it. The trail is damaged at places to due the recent rain, but people were out today repairing parts of it.

    An easy, family friendly trail. Strollers could make it through here as the path is mostly smooth. The area is very beautiful and usually not crowded. With the recent heavy rains some of the formations have fallen over, so be careful when walking not to cause further damage.

    Hiked this one again today. It's an easier hike and more in the open part of the city than in the middle of the mountains. It's a good hike for families.

    Do be advised that the recent rains have washed some of the trails out. You may have to jump some "streams" as you go.

    This is a nice area because there are several different paths you can take, so your hike can seem different each time you visit.
