Easy with nice little ups and downs to keep you somewhat interested. Hardly any views of the canyon that we wanted or expected (from the name).

My husband and I and our Pup hiked this trail today and loved it. Such beautiful scenery and not too difficult. We did the Overlook Loop and part of Canyon Rim Trail. It was getting pretty hot so we didn't finish it because we weren't sure how far it went. I wish we knew the length of it. We'll definitely be back on a cooler day to find out.

The views from this loop are unparalleled! It’s great if you want to get out but you don’t have all day. Also good for mountain bikers who are less advanced.

Canyon trail extends to a great overlook called scenic trail/view. If you are looking to save some miles park at campground and take far out trail to scenic view. Overall wonderful hike, Colorado never fails to disappoint.

Tremendous views along a trail that is not terribly demanding. Outstanding hike for all levels in a picturesque setting.

Easy hike but rough to run the trails. Sunset run was a lot of fun, but it gets little boring. Glad I came, but don't think I'll be back.

100% worth the view

We loved this trail. The views are breathtaking. It wasn’t busy at all for a sunny Sunday afternoon. We brought our pups and hiked the canyon rim trail.

Beautiful views. Easy rather than moderate.

Beautiful area and not very busy on a Saturday afternoon.

Some of the trail had tree cover, sunscreen optional.

If you look at the recordings, you will noticed there are multiple tracks for this area. My recording is for the "Overlook Loop", which was amazing.

AllTrails does not have a way to communicate with other outdoor enthusiast, I can be reached on Facebook Messenger if you have any questions about this trail.

great little trail with awesome views.

Easy hike and gorgeous views.

Took the trail to left. The hike was short, easy and no incline! The view was beautiful and very peaceful and I would recommend this hike to all skill levels.

Note: trail is labeled "Canyon Rim", and starts across from rest area. L is out and back, R is loop. Go right if you can't do both. Easy, fun and breathtaking trail.

Took off on the trail to the R instead of the L, so ended up on the loop, but great chance to see the Royal Gorge Bridge, river & train. Look forward to the other one next time!

Very nice hike, with pretty decent views of Canon City and the Royal Gorge! Definitely try to make it during the cactus bloom as there are a ton of cacti throughout the trail!

Cheers!
