This hike was really pretty. We went when it was a bit foggy so it added some extra beauty to the hike. There’s some small inclines but we were able to take our jogging stroller the whole way. There were a handful of people we passed and a lot of dogs. It was pretty easy and beautiful

Good trail to get your hiking legs in shape early season did it early April still had snow / ice in patches trail is in good shape through ski hill loop.

Great snow hike...
In the mountains, but not too deep and not too High. Perfect for a winter hike in the snow. Dog Loved It.!!

Fast quick and close to the city. Also, can hear cars most of the way but fades the farther you get. Still beautiful one of the hikes that got me addicted to hiking, so it means something to me.

Easy winter walk.

Decent hiking! Left too late in the day. Started the hike at 3.30pm, got back to the car after doing every loop we could just before the last sunlight was gone. Beautiful with Aspen trees and creepy woods at parts. Felt paranoid coming back because we were hiking down the cold, dark side of the mtn and the light was eerie. Definitely worth it! Wouldn't hike at near daybreak again, though.

I'd definitely do this trail again! It was so nice and cozy, and breathtaking! Best time to hike here is fall, because of color of the trees. Love this place!

Started the hike early, and it was great! Few people first thing in the am but traffic picked up as we headed out around 10:30. Had a few good views and the pups enjoyed it. Not sure where the river was though.

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.

Quick and easy to get your step count for the day

Easy hike. Good for kids.

Awesome 4 mile hike close to home. the signs are a little confusing but we ended up making a loop in the end. nice spot to stop at about 2 miles in for a snack. love all the aspen trees!

Just the right amount of gain for a goid workout. Partially shaded. Absolutely gorgeous during autumn with the changing aspens.

Nice short workout. Very pretty in autumn because of the aspens.

My friends and I did the 4 mile loop for a trail run and it was a fun run. The ascent wasn't too strenuous and it was very pretty. We only saw a handful of other people, even though we ended up going against the flow of a 10k that was taking place on part of the trail.

Nothing extraordinary but good for when you want to get out of the city without traveling too far!

Good hike. Not much of a view at the top but still pretty! My mother was able to do it with me without any struggle

Never really get away from the highway noise. Easy trail. Lots of wildflowers in June.

Very lush green forest like trail. Lots of flowers and not a boat load of ppl. I logged 4.3 miles on this trail today compared to the 1.8 it says. You can hear the traffic most of the hike other wise it's a great hike. It's a straight climb up... about 900 ft if you do all the loops.

took our 7 and 9 year olds a couple months back. did the short loop. there's a picnic bench under a Ramada half way up. spotted some woodpeckers too.

Dry and fun!
