Gorgeous scenery and easy drive. Although we found a switch back trail halfway through the first portion of the trail, that proved to have some tougher spots.

(1.14.2017) I completed this train back in January. Portions of the trail we're icy/snowy, but it was Jan. in Colorado so that's to be expected. Like other reviews, I also found portions of the trail hard to follow, after the waterfall, but over all it was a nice, short hike. Good for winter days when you don't have as much daylight. I would be interested in going back in the summer and camping.

Nice trail. Quite a bit of bike traffic. we caught it on a gorgeous day in February!

Beautiful views at the summit! Great hike w/my dog!

this hike was amazing. fun stream crossings when along the creek. cool homesteads for pictures and many different types of mountain views along the loop. long enough to want to pack snacks and plenty of water when its warm and dry out.

Nice views of Estes

Went last weekend and about half way the trail is blocked by a huge tree, but the biggest problem is that the trail tends to just disappear and is not clearly deffined. This happened at multiple spots. IMO this is more of a moderate trail than easy. This time of year, water is very low and trail is a bit muddy mixed with ice in spots and is expected, but that should dry up with the warm weather we have had recently.

Awesome trail. This is a great place for biking or hiking. There is a beautiful stream and some cool old homesteads. There is a bit of an elevation change once the hike gets going, but it's nothing too crazy. The hike to the top is worth the trip.

This used to be my favorite hike before it was closed for repairs. This is the perfect spot for a short and easy overnight trip. It has twenty odd stream crossings, and is full of beautiful columbines. It has almost no elevation change, and is great for an easy day on the bike. Enjoy!

It's closed. Unless you wanna hike 5 extra miles to get there.

fun trail with a lot of water crossings!
