very nice with trees and a little altitude. Downgraded due to constant noise on 285.

This was a great hike to do on a very hot day! There was plenty of shade and not that many people out hiking on the trail. I was told after the hike that there is an off trail you can take to get to the top where the views were.

Well maintained trail and good tree coverage. Lots of bugs, could hear the highway the whole time and minimal views. Don’t feel the need to ever do this one again.

Loved the hike. It’s nice and easy until you make the final climb which was a good incline. The top is an absolutely gorgeous view of the valley. There is also nice shade throughout! Have fun :)

What I do love about this trail is how conveniently located it is to 285. However, with that being said, you will sometimes have views of the highway. I’ve done this trail multiple times now based on the location. It’s a beautiful trail with tons of wild flowers and nice coverage.

Great short easy hike. Nice shade and great lookout at the end. Nice reward for such an easy hike. Nice wildflowers along the trail. Parking lot was full but trail really wasn’t too busy.

Super dry; no water. Last part of the trail is faint, but easily recognizable. Great views! Watch the cliffs.

Road noise throughout but otherwise fun short hike with good workout up hill

Beautiful hike, very well kept trails. Lots of shade, and even with the elevation gain the long switchbacks help keep it from being too difficult. Some wildflower viewing throughout. Surprised that there were so many mosquitoes. Not a bad idea to have bug repellent. Lots of dogs on the trails. Got there 8:30am on a Saturday and still parking in the lot. Lot was full by 11am.

A nice forested trail, very moderate incline most of the trail. Easy access off HWY 285. 4.4miles loop. The stub to Mt Legault was not readily visible on the upper loop, so if looking to summit that peak use GPS with the AllTrails map to try to find it (we did not).

7/4/19 great day for a hike! did some geocaching too with the family

Nice trail close to Denver. Nice shade for most of the hike. Pretty wildflowers at the moment. Has some pretty views from the trail, not as breathtaking as some trails. Good workout though, convenient, close - have done a couple times now.

A fun outing with friends and our dog. A very pleasant hike through the forest. Get there early as the parking lot and trail fill up quickly.

This was lovely. Lots of wildflowers and shade. We went early and it was definitely worth it. I forgot to turn the recoding off so the last mile was in the car. Oops.

nice birthday hike with my son

Great trail close to Denver. Arrived on a Weds at 10am and parking still available. Awesome trail for the pups. Nice gentle incline. Definitely do the climb to the top. The start of the trail up is very obvious but becomes faded as you go. Look for the long thin logs that mark the path. Beautiful views!

Awesome trail! I really enjoyed it. Trails were easy to follow and well-maintained. The trail at the top of the loop that goes to the summit is unmarked but fairly obvious if you are looking for it. It’s not as maintained as the other trails leading to it, but if you’re looking for it there is definitely a clear trail to the summit. A steady incline to the top. Great views at the summit, well worth it!

hands down one of my favorite hikes with minimal strain on the body for the reward at the end

Hiked this with 5 kiddos ages 5-7 and it was great. Tons of shade and not very busy. Got there around 9:30 AM on a Friday.

one of my favorite trails! it's starts out really easy until you get to the summit trail that leads you to the peak. it gets a little challenging from there but the views are amazing at the top of denver to the east and pikes peak(I'm pretty sure) to the south! we do this hike as an after work trail because of how close it is to denver!

I wanna do it again. Amazing views

Decent spot. Not much of river and can hear freeway travel, but easy to get to and good for quick hike

We got to the TH around 9 am. It was busy with a split between bikers and hikers. Great morning to get out, and it is close to the city. Good views from the top and the trail is in great condition.

Shaded trail with evergreens. Not many Mountain View’s. Great for beginner bikers.

Lovely & close to town. Shared by horses, bikers, dog owners & hikers.

Decent trail. Some parts were a bit muddy. Nice forested surroundings. You do hear a bit of traffic noise from the interstate.

This was a perfect hike not too far from Denver. For me, it provided just the right level of difficulty and ease. The trail was beautiful and very well maintained, and though the lot was a little less than half full I didn't seem to pass too many people on the trail. It left a nice feeling of seclusion. The birds were very active and they with the breeze through the ponderosa pines was heaven. It's true though that you can't escape the sounds of traffic from 285. There were just a couple patches of mud and nearly all the snow has melted. I highly recommend checking this trail out.
