easy trail its getting a little slick I think I’m gonna pick myself up some hiking poles. Otherwise great trail not boring at all

Great Views and Easy!

Beautiful views and super easy. Lots of off leash dogs, though. Made things hard for ours.

nice and dry even with yesterday's snow. good for runners as it's essentially a high altitude track with beautiful views that you can take as many laps as you'd like.

has some snow beginning is a up hill

Great trail! Steady incline 98% to the summit. Beware of the false summit, when you see the two sticks with rock piles around them you have at least another half mile. My phone died the moment I reached the true summit and tried to take a panoramic photo. So it’s closer to 12.5 mile round trip instead of the 11.2 that’s on the main screen. Totally worth the 4-5 hours!!

This hike is well worth the effort to the top. The winds pick up at the very end, and it definitely cools off, so pack a layer and a shell. We hiked it yesterday from bottom to top in 5 hrs with a short (10 min) break to take pics, while conversing comfortably. We are both fit colorado residents. By the end, we were SMOKED - and we crushed a burger at the local stop “Murphy’s” to celebrate. It was a perfect hike for that “12-ish mile, 3,700 ft gain” sort of day.

Came to Colorado this weekend for a wedding and decided to get a quick hike in. Great trail, wish I had time to do more!

September 22, 2019 Great hike! Good trail conditions and great views the entire time. The trail is in nice condition and after the 2.5 mile mark you'll see few other hikers, most turn around at the overlook. It's a long, steady uphill, but worth it, especially on a clear day. You'll need layers since it is a lot cooler at the top, and you won't want them at the bottom. Treeline ends at 11,500 feet, but shade up until then. Took the benefit of late summer's lack of storms and got a late start at 9:40am. Weather was ideal, around 70 at the base, 45 at the top. Completed in under 5 hours, about 2:45 up and 2 down.

Great easy trail with little elevation and amazing views. Take your camera! Great trail for dogs too. Nice pond for dogs to frolic in.

Very nice, shaded hike, close to the lake and the stream

Lovely hike along the Ridge Trail! Took our pup and had a beautiful hike. Trail was great, some loose rocks but not too bad. Overlooks were phenomenal.

Very easy and has some fantastic views.

Short hike, slight climb that leads to amazing 360-degree views once at the reservoir.

Very easy, family friendly trail and dog friendly! Loved it!!!

We had the senior doggy cart with us, so we passed on the trail section of the loop. We walked to the end of the paved path and back. It was a nice view of the dam. Just an FYI, lots of dogs off their leashes so keep an eye out.
