It's a bit overgrown at the start, but otherwise clear - and even shaded for several stretches! Nice view of downtown Boulder from the top. There's a small parking lot up there, if you wanted to start high. Moderate is accurate. It's not long or overly technical, but it'll get your heart pumping

Kinda boring hike. Average views

Beautiful! The views are great during almost all of the hike up. The trail starts out pretty easy and flat, then is pretty uphill for a while, then levels out again. The trail is also accessible without a car. The Hop drops you off down the street from the trail entrance. There are tiny green signs at the entrance, follow those and you will get to the trail.

Such a great trail - beautiful views of Boulder and you’ll likely have the whole trail to yourself. Not a long hike but a good way to see boulder from above if you only have an hour or so.

Went this morning around 11am. The trail was extremely muddy the first mile. It’s a nice short hike with some pretty views on the way up. But be prepared as it’s extremely muddy right now, and it made it difficult to climb up.

Have to park in the neighborhood down below and then starts winding up through the foothills to the viewing area just by flagstaff road/the star area. Lots of tables and benches up top. Pretty quick easy up and down

Hiked on 01-19-19 trail has evidence of moderate foot traffic. Got to the top but continued onto the flagstaff. The snow was a pleasant challenge, higher up some parts are icy but manageable. Great views.

This is honestly the best trail in town for the views you get along the way.

This trail is very accessible and walking distance from most places on the hill. Nice view over Boulder and surrounding hills.

Beautiful area and a short, moderate hike. Was a little too busy for my taste but I did go on a warm Sunday afternoon so I expected that.
