Not crowded at all so I loved that!

Very pretty views but pretty flat. I would come back though.

Quick little loop trail, most amazing view in GOG for sure!

Easy walk. Very nice scenery. Great family stroll if you're not looking for anything demanding.

The views on this loop are spectacular. That said, I did not really enjoy my hike because it was so heavily crowded. The paved trail was cluttered with stroller traffic and the non paved places in the rocks were full enough that you had to weave through people. It was very difficult even finding parking because the main lot was full. (This was on a Monday around 2-3pm.) To me this is great for tourists- you can get some spectacular photos- but it wasn’t the nature escape I personally hoped for.

Loved every minute of it! We went close to sunset!

So many amazing things to see, with stellar Pikes Peak views.

Great little hike

Beautiful hike and family friendly. Lots of mule deer unfortunately I didn't see any big horn sheep. Take water and snacks. Perfect for early morning trail run or sunset stroll.
