Great hiking
The good about it is you get to hike the mountain and also you will walk by the river

Hiked here on 6/2; very pretty trail and beautiful day. So many wildflowers!! First part was steep for a bit but then leveled out, but overall pretty easy hike! Parking was limited, we got there around 11am though.

Beautiful trail, better to do early morning or later in evening as there is a lot of sun

Really was a very nice hike .. first part was straight up, but than the views were awesome ! The rest of hike was pretty easy with wonderful scenery

It was a nice, quick hike. Mountain bikers were pretty heavy on the trail, but polite. I would suggest a small bell on your backpack though if you’re hiking alone as I just happened to stumble across a pretty big black bear. Luckily it just looked at me and moved up the hill.

Multiple trails to hike at trail head - beautiful and easy hike!

Make sure to check the map often, just hiked the trail and parts of the trail are closed which close the loop so it's easy to think you are headed back to your car yet you are headed away from the parking lot because the path that closes the loop back to the lot is closed. So just be aware and check the map.

Took West ridge to meadow view to bear creek to bear creek cutoff. The trail was pretty snowy, slushy and muddy the whole way from Sunday’s snow but manageable in just hiking boots. Had a little bit of trouble finding the trail at the bear creek/ bear creek cutoff crossing because of the snow coverage it took me a while to realize that the fences were trail crossings. Over all a beautiful trail can’t wait to go back once the snow melts.

Enjoyable hike! Did the West Ridge Trail to Bear Creek trail to Bear creek cut off. I like how you can link trails to make your hike longer or shorter. Very minimal mud and ice today. Nice balance of shade and sun. No big ‘vistas’ but lovely meadow and trees.

A good beginning of season hike. I found it to be busy, but beautiful. I will definitely come back. For those with dogs there is a brief stretch you must share with mountain bikers, not ideal for bikers or dog owners but it's a short stretch. This will definitely go in my early season rotation.

Beautiful hike for the average hiker with a variety of terrain.

The map on All Trails is not correct. The trails have since been re-routed. Check the trail map at the parking lot! Otherwise a great hike.

I hiked the O'Fallon loop and then hiked up to Panorama Point and down the Pano trail. Snowpacked in shady places, but I didn't need any traction devices. Dogs enjoyed it and I only saw one other person the whole hike!

I really enjoyed the various terrain and amazing scenery...a new fave for sure!

This is my go-to hike when I want a montane setting versus the exposure of the foothills. However, just be aware the hike as mapped on All Trails isn’t correct anymore. The park has reconfigured the trails and while there’s still a loop, it’s ~3.5 miles now. Check trailhead for map. If going counter clockwise, West Ridge Trail to Bear Creek Trail to Bear Creek Cutoff. Of course, since the park is connected to Pence & Corwina Parks, it’s easy to add mileage. The Chimney Shelter Trail is a nice short and interesting jaunt if you like that sort of thing.

A nice bit of elevation the first half mile but then it levels out. Great hike with kids/dogs. Parking is limited.

Did West Ridge and Meadow View trails. Pretty outing with some nice views. Moderate incline with good shade coverage.

This is a great trail if you just want a quick getaway. We finished the trail in about 90 minutes (we of course had a dog who needed to smell every tree).Our dog also loved jumping in the small creek on the last 1/4 of the trail. Beautiful views. Mountain bikes are allowed on a little bit of it, so the end of the trail was busier than the rest. Close to Denver. Good food nearby in Morrison or Kittredge.

8.03.03. Some trees but Mostly open. No water for dogs on trail but nearby off 74 there is areas for dogs to swim.

One of my favorite hikes!

If you're a fan of a simple walk in the woods, this is a good one for exactly that. Wildflowers and firs and pine. After that initial ascent, easy hike throughout.

Not difficult in the least. I encountered a minimal amount of people though, which was nice. I went on a late morning hike on a Wednesday.

This is a nice quiet trail if you get there early , before 9 am. Signage wasn't great for Upper Loop trail but only one or two forks in trail. Nice fishing and picnic area near parking.

Wife and I had a great time Sunday morning try to get there as early as you can after 10 o'clock to gets more busy

Be prepared for a steep incline for the first mile of the trail and a very narrow path throughout. But very quiet, beautiful water at multiple points, and very picturesque!

The trail is closed in some parts. Hard to follow, got lost on multiple off shoot trails. Not great views.

An ok trail that is rather easy after an initial short climb. The highlight is a brief good view of Mount Evans while the lowlight is the trail goes right behind some houses.

Great first hike of the season. Some of the trails it tells you to take are closed for restoration efforts so you need to take alternate trails sometimes. Fortunately there's are many to choose from. There was little to no snow on 4/2/17 but a little mud here and there, nothing more then trail shoes needed.

Great hike with great views. I ran into several people on the hike but still had a chance to feel alone with nature. Mainly stayed on the West Ridge Loop Trail, which had mountain bikers for about a half mile.
