Overall a great trail. Poison oak in a few spots and I almost stepped on a rattlesnake. For as many hills as there are here it’d be nice to see benches in shady areas. We started in the Pueblo Access lot so the last half of this trail for us was a huge incline. Challenging on a hot day. Bring lots of water.

Good amounts of shade throughout trail. I found taking the long uphill direction challenging. Views mostly of the gold course and the city so you never feel completely in nature.

Great trail for late morning walks. Beautiful scenary. Nice altitude. Just the right kind of short family friendly hike. Kids loved it.

A nice trail considering your location with respect to the suburbs. Other than that the trail is great. First part of the hike takes you straight up to the top. It's good cardio especially if you run it or keep a decent pace. I saw plenty of wild flowers towards the last mile and a half of the hike if you take the trail clockwise. Also, be wary of rattlesnakes. A guy trail running in front of me ran right past one and didn't seem to notice!

Good, easy hike. There was a very narrow trail section with long grass/vegetation on each side. Trailhead was near the golf course so you can always hit balls on the range after!

Good hike, some steep trails, so be prepared because there isn't anything to grab onto to pull you along. A walking stick would be helpful for beginners. Some pretty scenery and lots of green. A bit too close to civilization for my taste. It can get loud from the road, but all in all, a fun hike for my companion dog and self.
