Nice hike on a beautiful Saturday. Arrived about 8:30 am to plenty of parking and didn't encounter much traffic on the way up, but friendly bikers thronged the trail both directions on the way down. Encountered a rattlesnake on the trail within sight of the parking lot, but it wouldn't budge, so I backtracked and took Nighthawk Trail the rest of the way. This is a good moderate hike for diversity in terrain and inclines, and it has some nice but not spectacular views. Take a brief detour to Sleepy Lion Trail at the top for some really beautiful views of Longs Peak and the Ralph Price Reservoir in Button Rock Preserve.

Great easy hike with kiddos. Did it early to avoid the heat of July.

Nice little trail. Easy hike with a mine and artist in residence.

Early season (until mid-June) will have snow in areas. July to October it is clear of snow, but very heavily covered with loose rock. The trail can be technical in places. It is well marked.

Great area to follow streams and get lost in the woods

Perfect time of year to do this hike. I did Lost Lake trail early summer which starts off on the same trail head, much more enjoyable this time. Aspens are starting to change colors. Gradual elevation change doesn't feel like 2,700 ft. Awesome views at the top. Took about 6 hours with a few short breaks.
