Awesome quick hike for a great view. Bring lunch or a snack and hang out at the top (although it is windy). I went on Thanksgiving and it was fantastic. Very easy!

Like others said, don't let the distance fool you. Starts off relatively easy going then kicks the elevation gain into gear about midway through. There were some clouds rolling in when we got to the top so the view wasn't as spectacular for us. But we got a taste of it and will surely be back on a clear day!

Beautiful hike! Good tree coverage, well maintained trail, and a great view at the top! My Garmin tracked us at 2.3 miles. I did a loop going up the north side and down the south. South side is the shorter side if you want to keep it less than 2 miles.

Like others said, don't let the short distance keep you away from this hike. It's great cardio on the way up, the views are gorgeous and the way down keeps your focus because of the steepness. Was glad I had hiking shoes as I think my tennis shoes would not have cut it for the way down. You need some grip. Did this in late November and trail was completely dry due to our unseasonable weather (which I am loving). At the beginning of the trail don't panic when you only see north and south loop trail options. Take either and they both lead to the trail up. I took the south loop on the way up and opted for the north loop on the way down. Scramble on the rocks to the top was challenging for those who don't do it routinely but safe and doable. Never felt uncomfortable. Loved the views and sat for a while before returning down. Will definitely do this hike again.

Quick steep hike to burn off the Thanksgiving feast. Well marked trail now on the area map. Warm dry fall so no snow or mud on the trail now.

Don't let the fact it's only two miles round trip fool you, this is definitely a moderate hike. Most of the elevation gain is all at the middle portion of the hike, and is a serious knee-burner. The view at the top of Evans and Denver is worth it though, and if you ever happen to be in the Indian Hills area it's definitely recommended.
