Nice walk through Austin Bluffs with a little elevation gain near Pulpit Rock. Nice views. There are places where the trail is not clear, but cell reception was good the whole way.

This is a great hike for families

A bit confusing, but fun none the less. I took my dog running on this trail and had a great time. Beautiful views of the city and Pikes Peak halfway through.

Decent hike while it was well-marked. It’s very easy to get off track toward the end, and you’re better off following one of the better marked trails. Some elevation here and there makes it a fun trail, though!

If this is moderate, then I need to go back to easy. There was a lot of ascending and descending over rocks and tree trunks, and 300 foot descent and ascent overall. In a few parts, it was very difficult to tell where the trail was supposed to be. I cut off a big part of it and only did about 1.6 miles. It was lovely, though.

A very nice area to hike in the middle town a in back of UCCS. Lots of side trails can take you in unexpected directions. Still, pretty and you can’t get forever lost. Beware that the entry point on this map is not quite right. The entry path is at a bump out circle on the Main Street, Rockhurst. The point indicated on the map has been closed.

Very good trail, a little elevation gain going on but it’s nothing too bad. It is rocky though.

Very rocky in places. You have been warned

Great trek with the kids. 5 year old to 10 years old had little issues hiking or climbing. Amazing views.
