East Trailhead: Turn west on Buffalo Park Road from County Highway 73, just south of downtown Evergreen, and travel approximately one mile. You can also reach this trailhead by foot or bike from the Dedissee Trail, originating at the Evergreen Lakehouse. West Trailhead: This larger lot is a 1/2 mile west of the east trailhead.

It is a nice easy hike. The evergreen summit was fantastic. The trails through the three sisters is good but not great.

Super dog friendly and beautiful trail. Incline is steady in parts and more severe in others but overall it’s not that difficult. Rewards are the view at brothers lookout.

Nice and easy trail. The overlook was pretty too. Dog friendly. A bit icy and snowy at parts, but micro spikes aren't necessary.

Scoped this trail out to potentially take family here this weekend, and will definitely be returning. The weather was perfect and the trails were clear for the most part, with little ice and manageable snow.

High traffic park with limited parking. beautiful area with great rock croppings. I created my own path trying to get 6 miles in, which I was pleasantly surprised on how quiet and peaceful it was. Started on the west trailhead on silver Fox to sisters trail. Took a left at bearberry trail. Hooked up with mountain muhly trail and completed the 1.5 mile loop.Connected to homestead back to my truck. Great Day!

Very easy park, but close to the metro. Well kept and marked, with lots of different trails to wonder.

Hiked 6.5 miles on this on a Sunday morning. Arrived at 8:30 to a 1/2 full parking lot. Get there early!

Great mixed rolling hills, short steep climbs and pretty views. Lots of trail markers to keep you on path with many options to tack on more mileage easily. Lots of polite mountain bikers. People were out on horseback, running the trails, bouldering the rocks and snacking at the peak.

I've hiked these trails 10+ times and always bring visitors here. It's really a lovely and well maintained space that's got a lot of good material to explore.

Enjoy!

Great network of trails with a couple different access points. Saw only a couple other hikers on a Thursday in September. Did see quite a few mountain bikes though but they were all polite and courteous.

Relatively easy hike - great if you're looking to catch up with a friend and get a little workout in.

This is a very pretty hike near Denver. However because of that it can get very crowded. Be prepared to fight for parking. We also had a ton of bike traffic on this day. Some nice views along the way. The extra little push to Brother's Peak is worth the trip. We like the loop trail to Evergreen Mountain. It tends to be a little quieter and there are some nice views.

Great first ever hike! Beautiful. Not overwhelming, but enough of a challenge to make me feel like I accomplished something right out of the gate.
