Very nice trail. Just when think you’ve lost your place there’s a cairn. It starts out on gold camp pretty flat, then remains that way pretty much until the switchbacks . These are tough but not impossible. After you’ve gone through the man made fence you need to turn right and then left onto the last leg of the hike. This is by far the steepest and most challenging part. The trail is pretty easy to follow the whole way through . After this 1.5 mile climb, you’ll reach a meadow/ open area with incredible views of Almagre and Pikes . One more stretch to the top about 1 mile or so and you’re there . Amazing views of the city, a reservoir , and surrounding mountains. Round trip with a 45 min break at the top was 6 hours , left at 9:30 am and got back 3:30.

Great hike close to home. Now that summer is over, it wasn't very busy at all. Very easy trail to run down after enjoying the views at the summit. Will be even more beautiful when the Autumn colors kick in!! This will be my go-to when I need a short outdoor workout!

The beginning of the hike isn't too bad. Then at the actual trail up it becomes steep. It's worth the steep climb though. The actual climb up is available to dirt bikers. We had to move over for about twelve dirt bikes which was challenging because of the narrow trail and drop off edge.

A great hike to the summit. beautiful 360 views. Easy hike to the saddle up High Drive. Trail was not marked, turn right and follow up. The last 100 plus yards before summit are washed out pretty bad. It also gets steep but it's doable. Make sure to bring hiking poles for the decent. Remember that you are exposed in High Drive and the summit. probably not the best choice for a midday hike. Take time to enjoy the views.

Loved having the sound of the rushing river the entire walk. The first .7 miles to the trail marker is fully exposed to sun, but once you get to 622 it’s a nice single track with full tree coverage. The last part of the hike is steeper than the rest, but worth the effort for the nice waterfall and place to hang out before heading back. We showed up at 11 and got lucky, three people were leaving at same time so we got a parking spot. It took us about 1.5 hours up and back and we loll i gagged, took pictures and hung at the end for a while. Easy hike and nice way to spend a couple hours.

Awesome hike. Beautiful summit views.

There are incredible views all the way up. Short and easy trail but a lot of loose rocks and some narrow passes. It was my first hike in Colorado. I highly recommend it.

That last mile! Wow super step and super small rock for a path, like every step u take u lose 1/2 the step in skidding backwards. Good trail though except for that last mile. First 3.5 has incline for sure but fairly normal terrain.

Good trail! Go through the gate .7 miles to the 622 trail head on your right. Just as the dirt road curves left you will see the TH. Then it’s a somewhat medium hike. After the 7th bridge keep going up about .2 miles for awesome views!! Loved it!

Lots of uphill!

Gorgeous views from the top and a lovely Aspen grove to walk through on the way up. I’ve done many hikes in NCC and this was by far the hardest. The scree field you cross is scary and sketchy. Lots of scrambling and coming down expect to slide and fall if you don’t have poles. I fell more times than I can count but still worth it and I’d go again.

Great shorter hike to get the views you want! Coming from much lower elevations (West. PA) I had to go slow and steady, but things improved as time went on. More dog waste than I would like to see, but not too bad. It’s a Monday and the trail was not busy at all. As a hike overall, I really enjoyed the changing scenery as you moved toward the summit. The views at the top were spectacular and there was a strong enough signal to FaceTime the view with family! I highly recommend it— even going slow and steady it’s about 3 hrs round trip.

There is a little bit of a walk to get to the trail and that walk is not shaded. Once you get to the trail, it is beautiful! If you decide to follow the road and go strait, you come across a beautiful overlook!

This is a great fairly easy trail. It gets a little narrow at some points. I liked that there is a decent amount of shade but it still gets hot during the summer months.

Loved it! Beautiful views, easy-moderate trail, good shade. Got rained on, but could wait it out under some trees. After the 7th bridge the trail continues, but unclear where as it appears washed out from the rain today. Only issue I wish the trailhead was more clearly marked. Had to ask around where it was since I’m an amateur, and had no phone signal. I’m also a doofus who forgot to download the map smh. So, tips: wear shoes with good grip (not converse like me. Again doofus here lol), download a map because you most likely won’t have phone signal, know that the trailhead is marked with only numbers (622).

Very nice trail with beautiful views. Easy to navigate.

Started by taking 7 bridges trail to the point that meets up with this trail. (Where 622 and 667 meet) And turned right to take 667 back down the mountain. Came across a Mountain Lion Cub on the trail who ran back up the mountain a little ways to watch me as I passed...super cool but so scary as I was making sure that the mother wasn't going to jump out at any moment. As of September 8th, there is definitely at least one Lion on this trail, so avoid hiking it if it will freak you out. Also, there were a lot of dirt bikers coming up the mountain on my way down who did not seem to care about hikers. Had some beautiful views but the sound from the bikes ruined how peaceful it could have been.

I’m not particularly picky about trails at all but there was honestly nothing special about this one. Half the trail is literally a dirt road

A good workout. I highly recommend early morning so you can get a parking spot. Trail is shaded the whole way. Nice views of the creek all the way as well. The Moderate rating is spot on due to the rocks and inclines.

My almost 2 year old did it by himself... easy and pretty!

The trail was nice and the falls were great. This hike rates as a moderate hike but there were definitely places that could be rated as hard, you will not breathe easy on this trail.

My wife and I were looking for a moderate to hard trail with good scenery. This one hits the mark. About 6 miles round trip from the parking area if you take the trail all the way to the intersection with the Pipeline Trail. We’re from Florida so we could feel the altitude, but managed the up and back in about 4 hours with a little time spent exploring off trail. The whole area is breathtaking.
