My roommates and I did this hike last Saturday (5/12) as a part of the many challenges offered through Cotopaxi's Questival. We started our hike around 9 am and completed the out-and-back around 11:30 am.

It was a beautifully majestic morning as the mist settled upon the mountain and made us feel as though we were trekking somewhere in the Northwest U.S.. However, this did take away from some of the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape due to the lack of visibility.

This was a bit more strenuous than I initially anticipated, but I also went in with no prior research being done on the hike and thought it was only around 3 miles round trip. When it was more than twice that length I was a little surprised, but enjoyed the challenge nevertheless.

This was a very pleasant hike that I would definitely like to do again (on a clearer day) when I can take in some of the views!

beautiful hike, with wild flowers and wild life....very nice light during sunset

Lots of switch backs but it was really beautiful. A nice view of the skyline!

great views

Perfect hike for non-acclimated visitors. Great views and easier hike to get outside!

Close to the city, quick trip- great for running or a casual stroll. Saw a lot of folks with their dogs out

Slightly challenging, very well traveled trail, beautiful views!

Awesome easy hike with a few steep areas.

Great easy trail. It was cloudy so views weren’t that great. Trails were well maintained

Great views, decent elevation gain.

It was really beautiful and challenging because it is a long trail. We took Turkey Trot up and went to the castle via Castle Trail then back down castle trail. The Walker Castle is a faint memory, but you can get a feel of it’s grandeur from all of the dilapidated fireplaces.

Always a fun hike. Great views by the homestead.

Good workout due to steep elevation grade. Well maintained trail. Everyone was courteous-so no issues with bikers. Interesting “castle” ruin at top. I would hike it again - but either earlier in the morning or later in the day since the mid-morning sun is very strong and there is very little shade on the ascent.

Great workout great local hike

It was beautiful and well groomed trail. I put 4 stars coz of the bikers. They are inconsiderate and rude to hikers, walkers. They need a designated area for bikers only, so they can be rude to each other.

Loved the hike. Beautiful views all hike and great trail conditions. Only issue was a few people had dogs off leashes but it didn’t take away from the hike. Will definitely be going back!

We love biking out here! Great views for little work.

Great trail! Great views the whole way with a really good cardio workout. A lot of incline trails the whole way up so be prepared !

Hiked this 3/17. Little Challenging but the views are incredible and completely worth it.

Great workout and views on this hike. Not super crowded despite the parking lot overflowing. I would definitely do it again.

Good hike, not too long or too short and a great view of Denver and Red Rocks

Went with my dog. Easy beautiful hike. Not a lot of traffic on the trails, we saw maybe 5 people. I highly recommend it!

easy trail, family friendly. some small snow spots in the shade, easily avoidable. would like to explore the trail network around this one a bit more.

Great hike for dogs

pretty scenary but nothing exceptional. moderately challenging trails. good amount of trails to close from.

Breathtaking views.
