Something new around every corner.

Great hike suitable for kids

This trail was about 40 minutes from us. WELL worth the drive, great scenic look overs, lots of rock formations. Unfortunately a lot of off leashed dogs with irresponsible owners, but we’ve been finding it everywhere lately. None the less, we will be back many more times!

my favorite trail in the area

Loved it! Easy diverse terrain and beautiful views. Not crowded. Easy parking.

It was a nice trail. Shaded parts and also parts in the sun. Nice views way up high. Fun hike overall.

A great hike through lots of terrain to get some miles in without a lot of elevation.

Great trail- loved the diverse terrain. Well marked. Even spotted some Ute sacred trees. Beautiful views of Piles Peak. Easy to access and not crowded.

This is a great workout. The rapid elevation gain is more so if you take the path straight/right, continue past the Eagle Pass Trl and UP the service road. You can add time/distance with the hike to the cemetery (more like a seeded fenced area,) and then adding the 1 mike loop at the top (sorry forgot the name)
Beautiful views!
A bit easier hike is starting to the left, but still uphill, just slower gain.

good hike short and sweet.

Beautiful trail, lots of shade. It's fun walking the perimeter of the summit for a view on all sides.

Nice trail with a lot of shade. The views are worth the trip to the top.

Fun trail! Good for a day hike for the whole family. Mostly wide walking trails, marked very clearly, great views with the smell of spruce trees the entire way. This trail should be deemed "easy" not " moderate"

Easy trail for sure. Good portion of it shaded. Great for kids or for trail running. Well marked trail with nice views. Good place to take out of towners not used to the elevation.

This was a great 5.5 miles venture, 2.3 miles was the upper loop. There was a couple other out and back trails, not included in the 5.5 miles. Took two moderately active people an hour and 45 minutes. Saw a coyote.

Great trail, very scenic. The service road going to the top nearly killed me

I would rate this more on the easy side -a pleasant walk. Nice views from the top.

One of my favorite hikes! This morning I trekked up Spruce Mountain, then down the steep, rocky service road to the Greenland Trail. Doing this nice 5-6 mile loop allows you such varied terrain: stunning overlooks from up high down through serene scrub oak and pine forest to beautiful prairie and meadows below. Lovely!

Beautiful little hike, about 5.5 miles. Went today at about 8 AM and there was very little traffic on the trail. Came down about 1030 and there was a few more people coming up but not crowded at all. Horses, bikes, and hikers all had plenty of room from what I saw. I felt the trail itself was easy, but for those who aren't experienced the first 1.5 miles could probably be a little more tiring.

I love this hike! Nice trail and excellent views.

Great trail. I would say a good amount of this trail is shaded! Views are beautiful.

Beautiful trail. Gets strenuous near the top. Views payoff!

Super easy trail. Not a lot is shade. Would be perfect early morning or evening.

Such a fun hike! Beautiful views of Pikes Peak and cool rock formations and not much elevation gain. The 5.5 miles goes by pretty quickly!

Beautiful open area with views of the hills and rock formations. So many wild flowers. This is a very easy trail, would not call this moderate. You go in and out of shade, which is nice.

Nice hike with great views

Enjoyed a great hike, views are amazing up on top, the 5.5 miles is pretty easy with lots of switchbacks.

Quite challenging, but worth it for the incredible views.
