beautiful short hike. I went early to get parking and was happy that the trail was fairly empty. there are a few steep drop off on the trail but totally navigable. views at the top are great.

Beautiful trail. Steep in places and had to do a little scrambling and hiking, but well worth the effort.

Great hike. Did it at dawn this morning and had the trail to myself. Spur trail to Kineo isn’t well marked but your GPS will help greatly. Aspens were is full fall blaze up there. Return trip down was crowded on Seven Bridges, so get up early if you want solitude.

I love Muscoco! I've done it a few times and find the view breathtaking with each visit! If I've learned anything on this trail, it's that a good pair of shoes makes all the difference! Don't be a dumb-dumb like myself and wind up with nasty blisters. I'm a decently in shape 25 year old and found it a little on the challenging side. I only rated it a 4 instead of 5 due to the lack of parking.

One of my favorite trails by far! The views are so beautiful. I went midway on a Monday and there were no other hikers on the trail. The summit is so peaceful and quiet. Would definitely recommend.

Great hike, however using the All Trails MSP was a life savor since indeed the trail at the open area where all trails meet is poorly marked. The hike is great and I was the only person on this 2nd leg and the views are astounding. Great for a family hike and picnic on top overlooking the Springs and the surrounding mountains. Definitely a hike to return to.

We came here with our dog in the beginning of September. The waterfall was mostly dried up at the top but it has nice views still. Easy and short hike, loose dirt in some areas which makes it a bit slippery in some areas. There is a creek at the bottom near the parking lot which provides some shade. The drive to here has narrow and winding roads up the mountain but we drove about 15-20 mph and no issues.

Short trail, mostly covered by stairs. There are some decent views up at the top with scenic viewpoints. There was little water when I was there, so there wasn't much action from the cascades.

Helen Hunt Falls is directly off of the parking lot, so there's very little walking to do once you've arrived in order to see the waterfall. Parking is very limited. There is a staircase that will take you up and over the falls and leads to some different trails.

A mostly easy climb, occasional sheer cliff-face with some washout. Beautiful views of Colorado springs, Seven falls and the surrounding mountains. Highly recommend an early hike for low temps and striking photography light.

Very nice hike to Upper Columbine and then Spring Creek trail but there is a LOT of loose gravel and young children should not be on parts of it as the trail has washed out with very narrow trail and steep, sometimes sheer drop offs. 4.27 miles for us with 927 vertical feet.

Fun little hike! Wasn’t expecting the stairs, so keep that in mind, it is a very man developed trail and there are a lot of steps, some are slippery because of gravel. Brought my 2 & 4 YOs and my 12 YO dog, and they loved it, we made it all the way to the top! We had a blast sliding down the “slippery” rocks at the top and enjoying the beautiful views!

This is one of my favorite hikes yet. You get beautiful views of the city and mountains. There is a cute area at the top that would be great for a picnic. There are a few narrow areas so just be careful with the kiddos.

Loved this hike. Most of it was just a slightly uphill walk. It got steeper/more rocky towards the top. Got off trail once by mistake where it starts to get iffy, but found our way back fairly easily. Pretty good views at the peak, but a few trees in the way.

Saturday morning parking was completely full—just be aware of that.

Nice secluded trail with great views! Went on a Saturday afternoon and only saw 3 other hikers. Decent elevation gain and steepness towards the summit. Sat on the peak having lunch for about an hour just taking in the views and sunshine.

This is a well marked trail. Very easy route finding, I found GPS to be pretty good..

With all that being said, this is a moderate to difficult hike.. There is no technicality, other than maneuvering lose gravel on the decent.. but the length of the trail and the 3 sets of monster switchbacks is nothing to shake a stick at. I recorded 7.5 hours moving time and 5.5 was uphill..

Gorgeous summit! Marvelous ridge at the false summit.. all in all a beautiful peak to put in your bag.

It was a great hike with beautiful views! The path can get a little slippery with gravel, especially when it rains, so make sure to wear good hiking shoes. I would definitely recommend it!

Short, easy, family-oriented hike. We found it by accident while driving on Gold Camp road. Will go back to do some of the other longer trails.

Short little hike. Quick elevation. Steps and gravel trail. Wide and easy to follow. Family friendly. Busy parking because of popularity. Zero water flow during droughts but still pretty.

Great views, close proximity to information post.

We went up Seven Bridges and then traversed the gravel slope.. (Be mindful to climb to the upper trail as you make that traverse. The lower trail is still getting a lot of use and is pretty unmanageable, the upper is very nice) We then got to the aspen forest which is perhaps the best part of the hike!
We climbed uphill towards the trail for Kineo, we saw the new postings on the signage. The areas around Garfield and Aurthur are closed for restoration. We headed west along the creek but turned back after seeing the closed trail signs. The rangers have done significant work laying trees and branches to keep people out of that area so we respectfully turned back. Will go after Garfield and Arthur when they open this area back up.

It was an awesome trail with amazing views. At some points there are numerous trails intersecting each other but the GPS feature on the app keeps you heading in the right direction.

This is one of my favorite trails yet! You get beautiful views of the mountains, the city, and the forest itself. The reservoirs are really nice and there are a couple of places that have bathrooms if needed. The trail is a bit longer than listed because part of it is blocked off so you have to take an extra loop. It was a total of 5.51 miles and an elevation gain of 1,095 feet!

Beautiful hike saw a lil black bear down in the lower off trails which was rather exciting and very awesome, the hike was rather difficult coming up to the summit for myself but I'm still getting the hang of the altitude change, went off trail when my phone died and ended up 1hr off trail I highly recommend staying on trail and not wander lol!

Definitely walked about a mile down the wrong trail before we turned around and tried again. Walk up high drive to the clearing - You will know it when you see it. From the clearing, you will see a metal rope fence - the trail starts on the far right side, as others have stated. If you’re looking for Mays, you want the unmarked trail. The views along the way are fairly stunning in and of themselves, but the 360 views from the top are choice. Would definitely do it again! Make sure to find the geocache and sign the log book - It’s in an old ammo tin under a pine tree that rims the peak. Loved this hike! Shout out to all of the previous reviews for the tips on finding this trail.

It took me 35 minutes to summit and 30 to get back down. I agree with others about the unmarked branch-off being hard to find. It looks like it is fenced off so I was the only one on the trail. Amazing hike.

(Hiked in October 2017) this hike was really enjoyable, didn’t take up much of the day, and had great views. Definitely worth checking out.
