Fantastic / relatively easy, good for kids/ families and dogs are happy here. Comfort station at parking lot is well maintained. I did this trail on a weekday in Winter and saw very few others. If Fawn is too easy, take Ponderosa trail!

Great trail close to Denver. Nice view from Brothers Lookout.

Not a huge workout but nice trail and beautiful vistas

Fun trail and it's really fun to climb up the sisters but was a bit much for my Aussie. Got him up one but the others were a bit too sketchy for my preference on getting him up there. Views on the sisters aren't too bad but a bit crowded even on a weekday.

Nice easy trail that I took my dog up. Lots of shade on the trail so you don't overheat. View at the top is OK but maybe it's because I don't like hiking that much.

nice and easy hike. The view from the lookout was pleasant, dog friendly trail with little elevation gain.

Fun trail with some varying landscapes. Fairly consistent elevation though nothing strenuous. This could border on easy depending on how frequently you hike. I started off in the Alderfer Ranch Parking Lot and took the West trail up to the peak. Great views at the top as you would expect. Went back down on the East trail then looped back on the Ranch View trail. Roughly 6 miles total and about 1000' of elevation change for the route I took. Took me just over 2 and a half hours. Would definitely recommend!

Up and down on the East Trail to Evergreen Mountain today, beautiful weather, easy six miles. Trail is clear - need a snow

Plenty of good exercise and very few hikers once away from the three sisters formations. No real “views” or summits on this hike, so easy for all types of hikers. We did do some side-scrambling to summit the middle sister (which has some great views of the divide). It didn’t appear to have marked trails, but was fairly easy to ascend.

nice hike close to Denver. Views are alright once at the top to see Mt Evans, but the actual scenic overlook only showcases some of evergreen lake and the high school below. fun hike on a cold day, only saw 2 other people on the trail on a Thursday morning/afternoon

I absolutely loved this trail! It clocked at 5.2 mi with the addition of the Summit Trail, which I highly recommend if you want great views. I parked at the Alderfer/3 Sisters West trailhead, which wasn’t quite as packed as the East trailhead (at least I was able to park in the actual parking lot!). From the parking lot, I took the Wild Iris Loop to the Evergreen Mountain West trail to the Summit loop, and took the same route back. The trail was super clear and not icy at all (apparently the Evergreen Mtn East trail was icy). There were a fair number of mountain bikers but they were respectful and there was plenty of room to move over for them to pass. The views at the top were gorgeous!! I would actually put the trails themselves at the low end of moderate because they didn’t gain in elevation quickly- there were a fair number of switchbacks. I was with my very slow low-energy dog and completed the hike in 3 hours with rest time.

Great weather

Great quick hike, though not very challenging once you get past the first, short incline. Plenty of rocks to scramble up along the trail with nice views and not too crowded this time of year. It's also short enough to head up and down after work before the sun goes down!

Gorgeous. Worth it to walk up the boulders for the better views-someone decorated one of the trees with Christmas ornaments.

Great trail with scenic views at the top. Incline the whole way but not too hard. Lots of Mtn bikers but easy to share the trail.

This trail was beautiful! Perfect mix of up and down hill throughout. Nice scenic views to stop at along the way. We took the west route in and the east route out so it added 2 miles on, but it was worth it.

Very nice hike, especially considering how close to Evergreen it is. The difficulty is on the moderate side in spots on the north side of Sisters Trail. The Brother's Lookout segment is worth the time with a great view on top of the formation (plus a fun little surprise this time of year). We cut the hike short and finished by taking Ponderosa back to Sisters.
