This area is highly trafficked and if you are looking to get away from the city avoid the trail and head deeper into the mountains where the tourist are not.

lots of people and small children

I wish I could tag to see "tourists" it's a beautiful trail but maybe too close to Denver. I went on a Sat afternoon in the fall so maybe it was just folks looking to see the leaves change but it was filthy with people. It was a lot more like standing in a fast moving line at a movie theater than a hike. I couldn't sneeze without another hiker saying bless you.

I call this more of a nature walk than a hike. Pros are that it's easy to find and the trail is well marked. Beautiful aspens, lodgepole pines and rocks. Good for all skill levels. Cons are the road noise and the unfortunate placement of power lines through the park.
