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.

This was an awesome trail with a beautiful view. It was windy 3/18 and there were mostly mountain bikers but everyone was extremely nice and respectful of all trail rules. 10/10 might be back next weekend!

beautiful views! for my first hike it was well worth it!

Lots of bikes, but the trail is more than wide enough for bikes and people. Not a peaceful hike if there’s a motocross race going on across the road.

Hardly any mud left - a couple of spots but nothing tennis shoes couldn’t handle. Pretty low traffic at 10:00 on a weekday - picking up by the time we left. Easy hiking for our 25 lb pup.

This trail was a lot of fun to run. The only suggestion I have is to be familiar with the trails before you head up the mountain. The kiosk at the trailhead has a trail map, but it isn't very specific and doesn't show distances per trail. Being a first-time on the mountain, I ended up talking to several friendly trail runners who gladly helped me out. Super nice weather!

Great walk. Windy today and some mud (
