I love this trail! This is a great trail if you're looking for a workout as the first half is quite steep. And while you can see the highway, it's only for .3 mile or so. The rest of the hike is remote. And I didn't have any issues with mountain bikers.

I ran this trail as part of the "Bergen Peak Half Marathon". I loved this race- it was hard but awesome, lots of variety in terrain, and great views. If you like trail racing, sign up for next year. Check out the Evergreen Trail Racing Series. they have 4 races. I think I'm signing up for the series next year.

A fantastic hike that offers more than 2000 feet in elevation gain. It does start off brutal with switchbacks and false summits, but the view on the summit and the latter half of the trail is spectacular. You get to see Denver, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Mount Evans (which just looks huge and awe inspiring from the trail). It is definitely a workout, 10 miles there-and-back and the incline is gradual throughout your whole hike. But it is worth the trip, and truly feels like a mountain hike.

It's a nice effortless walk. I collect rocks from all my hikes and this place had a lot of white stones, clear crystals, and white mica. I went in the afternoon and it wasn't very crowded. There's enough trails and length that you passed by a few people but that's about it. The trails next to highway, you get a little more noise, but it's not unbearable. Maybe I think it's not bad though because I live in Cherry Creek which has waaaay more noise. Oh! And it's gives you a pretty decent view of the forest.

Very quiet and easy walk with my dog. We pretty much stayed on the the Elk Meadow Trail. Will be back!

Good workout- the grade is steady. Great view at the top.
Too bad that I could hear the highway noise most of the 4 hours on the trail. Watch out for mountain bikers.

We recommend heading up the steep part first, then doubling back after halfway so you don’t have to walk along the highway at the end.

Not too hard. The view at the top was okay. I was hoping for better after a decently long hike. Took about 4 hours

Beautiful ride. Climbs were good. The descents were a little more technical than I would qualify as easy. I would call this an intermediate ride. Nice cultured trail with lots of tree cover for shade. Definitely worth the trip whether biking, hiking, or running. Very polite people here in Colorado. That speaks greatly to their character. Thanks for the experience!

Easy to find, wide trail. Nice loop, but because it is so easy to access / close to Evergreen Pkwy, there is also road noise.

Nice loop close to Denver. Perfect setting for walking, running or mountain biking.

Great series of trails with a mixture of grasslands, forests and rock formations. Close to Denver and well worth the visit..

I did not give this a 5 because there were a lot of mountain bikers, and because you could see and hear the highway most of the hike. It was a good workout, about half shaded. If I lived closer I'd definitely go again.

Challenging for the distance, my feet hurt! Very well marked trails and a variety of terrain! Nice scenery!!

A fun trail! Well marked and a lot of different terrain
