Excellent trail for those looking for a non-threatening hike. You will barely notice going uphill here. But beware- we heard a rattle snake!

Nice easy/moderate trail with several options for making a loop shorter or longer. Great views with minimal crowds.

After paying a $7 per person entrance fee to the State Park (our family of four (including two teens) live to support state parks!) we had a great hike on this trail. Lots of switchbacks which made for an easy ascent/descent. Only one of the three brigades in the park is open at this time, but didn’t hinder our hikes at all

The bridge in the trail map is out so you have to go to a bridge maybe a quarter mile up. Beautiful hike. Plenty to see. We spotted several deer during our hike. And it was extremely quiet. We got started around 9am. Was not terribly challenging, just a lot of uphill for us.

Beautiful day for this hike. Yes bridges are washed out but the loop and entire trail is accessible via Kisva Trail. Views from the top are excellent.

I came here to trail-run today, started at Turkey Creek and came in East Gate. Saw a few people around this trail, views were pretty great at the lookout. The bridge is closed so don't plan on taking that, take the east-most bridge and Kisva trail to do this loop. Probably the best hike in Red Rocks State Park.

Terrific easy hike! Unfortunately, 2 of the 3 bridges in the park were closed. The Eagle’s Nest Loop was a little longer as a result, but it is super easy and the views are pretty excellent at the top. Good opportunity to see wildlife as well! Cost was $7/adult.

HikingBridge outFeeGreat!

This was our first time to Red Rock SP and we enjoyed it! Trails are very well maintained, trails are clearly signed, views are amazing. Two of the three bridges are washed out, so all access is via the Kingfisher Bridge from Bunkhouse Trail (trailhead at the Nature Center). We did Eagle’s Nest, which gives you the BEST views of all the surrounding beauty. Lots of wildlife and birds too. Just to add distance, we added the Apache House of Fire Trail loop. It was short but a nice side trip through some great little canyons. We will definitely be back to hike this park again.

Wasn't aware that the park is set in a neighborhood of high end houses. On the trail to Eagles Nest, we were following a homeowners fence line, 20 feet from the house. Also, there are so many signs that it is more confusing than helpful. Entrance fee is steep - $14.

Great trails and well marked and beautiful views of Oak Creek. This was definitely kid friendly and relatively easy trails to hike. We went on 10/17/20 and the park closed two of the creek crossings to the eagles nest trail from the visitors center and therefore had to take the bunkhouse trail to head to the kingfisher bridge crossing and take Eastgate to the House of Apache fire to Coyote Ridge to Eagles Nest and then head back on the Kisva trail to the Kingfisher bridge crossing. The trails are clean and well maintained and on the plus side no dogs allowed (I love dogs but don’t love the owners who don’t pick up after their pets). The park fee is $7 per adult and $4 per child but it’s well worth it. The visitors center also has restroom facilities with running water and a nice rooftop that someone had booked for a wedding while we were there. Although we did have to hike extra to get onto the Eagles Nest Trail, it gave us the opportunity to hop on most of the park’s southern trails including the beautiful shady trail Kisva which runs along Oak Creek. Also a quick FYI - no swimming or touching the creek allowed while on the park property.
