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!

Did this hike today - so beautiful! We really enjoyed all of the openings and spots to sit and soak up the views. There are actually benches scattered throughout this trail! Hike was part wooded, part exposed. Very little snow on the trail, but some mud. Spikes not needed.

An absolute blast to do trail running on with all of the rolling hills. Well maintained trail with variety of views including looking over the 285 drive. Good chance to see wildlife too.

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.

Awesome Mountain View!

Great hike for dogs

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

Breathtaking views.

This was a nice moderate hike with good views and steady incline. Trail was easy to follow and well kept. I’m brought my dog and had him off leash for some of the way up but a lot of mountain bikers on the trail so I’d recommend keeping your pup safe at your side and on leash. I’d recommend getting to the trail head early as the parking lot and trail both get full after 10am.

great hike!

Snow and ice almost completely gone, just a few muddy spots remain. Worth the time to add Walker’s Dream to your hike!

Quick easy hike and a good view of Denver :)

Great views of the city

Great views of the Front Range and Denver including Res Rocks. This is a must hike!

Hiked a few weeks ago. Cool historic site early on, heavy traffic, pretty challenging on the way back up. Great day hike!

Very kid friendly; must bring my 5yo next time.

This trail has incredible views throughout! It starts of with a lot of up via several switchbacks but then you get to cruise and enjoy the views so the hard part is worth it. As of March 11 there were a few areas that still had some hard-packed snow and/or ice but overall not very much and I didn’t have any trouble with it in just boots. There were a good number of people hiking and biking on a Sunday afternoon but it didn’t feel crowded to me on the trail. You do need to keep an eye out for bikers- we always had plenty of time to step to the side though. Great trail!

Great hike, moderate incline, lots of gorgeous views and pretty long. Feels like a workout, but just keep going! If you reach the picnic benches, you are almost to the ruins!! Still some ice in the shadier places, but mostly dry and warm in the sun.

Great steady incline with beautiful views. I was just expecting a little more at the top.

Fantastic trail. We hiked up Turkey Trot (no bikes) and down Castle Trail (bikes on it). We didn't go all the way to the end of the Castle Trail. We turned around at the pavilion with picnic tables.

We did the hike between 11am-1:30pm on a Saturday, and while the parking lot was packed (and cars were parked up the road a 200 yards) the trail didn't feel that crowded. Everyone was super friendly. There were a lot of dogs on the trail but all were on leash and the trail was wide enough so plenty of room to pass.

The trails were very dry...just a few short patches of slush/snow but easy to navigate and no risk of slippage.

Great views! Preferred doing this section uphill and turkey trot downhill

I loved this hike! One of my new favorites that isn’t far from town. We went early before everyone arrived and it was so peaceful and beautiful. Highly recommend this loop!

This is a short loop with little elevation change. Great for taking dogs or kids, or those new to hiking. There is plenty of parking and decent restrooms. Watch out for ice during the winter season. There are several drainage areas that stay icy for long periods of time. If this hike is moderate, it is barely so.

Gorgeous views all along this heavily trafficked trail. Lots of people, even for a Monday morning. Some icy/snowy spots - spikes would be handy but not necessary. Overall good hike, I will be back!

loved the trail for it's amazing views! Bring a buddy and another car if you don't want to hike up the mountain. you can just hike down. go on a weekday if you hate people. for the reviewers who are bummed out about unleashed dogs - how is the opportunity to pet a friendly pupper a bad thing?
