Easy to navigate, mostly good for mountain biking but some hikers on trail. Many paths to choose from. Ran some of it.

Beautiful 360 degree views, including Denver, Morrison and Golden. Not a drop of shade, but that’s why you go for a sunset. Considerably steep at the get-go, but there are several interweaving paths of varying distances to accommodate all schedules and most fitness levels.

Good views of downtown and the hike was a good length for a weekend outing. Despite the views the trail wasn’t very scenic or interesting.

love this trail! hiking up isn't bad, riding down is a blast! the view from the top is great and plenty to look at on the way down. looking forward to riding more trails in this area!

Great views + nice people + good weather = A GREAT TIME

I came in hopes to see elk and and as I started up the hill it was the 360° views that took my breath away. Couldn’t see how there would be elk on this hill but when I got to the top I was thrilled to see a BIG buck and his large herd of females and some young boys! Majestically standing over them staring at those of us who stopped to admire them. We were so close! What an amazing experience! Definitely a great hike!!! #bestdayever

Nice trail accessible by public transportation. When I went last night I watched a herd of elk grazing right off the trail in the sunset.

Great views of the mountains and Denver :)

I mean it was a decent hike. but the climb up, while physically challenging, was honestly boring. it's just dirt and gravel everywhere, there's no shade, and when we went (mid August) there were bugs swarming at our faces and biting our necks. it felt like a desert. the view was nice, though. and yeah there are a lot of mountain bikers, but there's usually enough room to let them pass.
probably wouldn't do it again for fun, but for exercise it's good

Trek as long or short as you want. Looks easy, but it's not!

Ended up being 6 mi trail due to being poorly marked. Not to shabby otherwise though!

Good long trail. Ran in to a herd of 12 elk, and also saw a mile deer. Took part of the Rooney trail through the valley as well.

great hike. loose gravel makes it slippery at times.

Lots of trails to choose from and lots of sun. Had meant to do the Zorro trail on my off day for an easy run but stumbled upon these trails. Pleasant surprise. Will definitely be going back to venture some of the tracks I didn't cover. Lots of bikes but this me some time to rest on some of the steeper inclines. Great space

A great option for a runner that is new to trail running! I was hesitant to run this trail because of the previous snake warning, and though I didn't cross paths with one, I was warned when I got back to the parking lot that one was spotted on the near by Summit trail. Use caution and always stay aware!

I've been hiking this 4-6 times a week for the last 3 months. I also mtn bike all of GM. A few days ago, I encountered a very large rattlesnake on the single track part of the trail just before the tower. After striking at me once and thankfully missing me, I quickly backed up, but he slithered toward me and struck again and I again moved back, he advanced and struck again. I used a hiking pole to throw him well off the trail. It is best not to aggravate them with rocks, dogs, sticks, etc. if you can't get past or even if you can and you have some way to move them well off the trail, please do. Any aggressive poisonous snake is a dangerous snake. Be careful, especially with small children and dogs.

This trail is awesome because it’s right on the side of the road but you have access to amazing views of all of the Denver metro area. If you make it all the way up you get to see the splendor of the mountains. Great place for a short getaway if you don’t have a lot of time.

Great park where you can pick and choose trails, difficulty, and length. No shade coverage anywhere so very hot and exposed.

Beautiful scenery and saw elk out and about. Close to Denver which is nice and you will see the roads and cars driving around you for a good part of the hike

Great leg workout mostly uphill. A lot of bikers but courteous on the path. Beware no shade, bring lots of water. No resting spots for breaks. Maps are poorly marked but we enjoyed the run!

5/21/18 start 5:30pm. First of all, this is categorized wrong. It’s an easy trail, not moderate. It’s also boring compared to countless other trails you could hike. This should be classified as MOUNTAIN BIKING ONLY. The paths are relatively wide in a lot of places with no real technical hiking challenges. In the places where path was not wide I had to get out of the way for WAY too many bikes. Never ever had to say that before about a trail. One bike guy announced himself from way up the hill and then came charging down at freight train speed. Scared me to death and almost lost my balance. Dear biker: you don’t need to be going that fast on a trail with hikers. Won’t be doing this trail again.

Started the trail around 930am on a Wednesday. Very little traffic, maybe 10-15 people passed by on foot or bikes.

Had a nice hike here today. We brought our dogs and luckily we had some cloud cover. It was about 6.6 miles from the car and back. The hike was great, lots of ups and downs and some good incline. My one complaint is that there is no tree cover. It is really just a wide open meadow and field. We were fortunate with the cloud cover today but I wouldn’t bring a dog back here during the summer months knowing how hot it gets, the rattlesnakes and the lack of any water or shade cover. Other than that we saw lots of runners and bikers. It was a good trail and I think we were lucky with the weather today!

Perfect! Trails can get super busy as the day goes by. Most using the trails are courteous but there are plenty of mountain bikers who whiz past you so be alert.

The view at the top is nice but I'm not sure it's worth having to listen to the highway, consistently moving out of the way for mountain bikers, and being very hot because there is no shade.

I've really enjoyed this hike over the last couple of weeks. The weather has been wonderful. Only downside is that myself and my friend both slipped while hiking the last mile as a result of all the loose dirt and gravel.

My wife and I hiked wearing our one year old and waking our dog. Nice views of Denver and it's suburbs.

Not bad. Not great.

I live on this mountain and enjoy hiking here. It is busy during the warmer months, and as others point out, many bikers don’t share the path or watch their speed which is annoying but hey, driving 6th Avenue has the same issue so you get used to it. Watch for rattle snakes!

Easy, enjoyable hike. Great for a newbie to the area getting used to a little elevation (like me!) and still wanting some nice views without traveling too far. Saw some cool birds and a coyote.
