Great hike on a cool and partly cloudy day. No dogs is really a nice relief some times. The trail is mostly narrow and a lot of traffic. Good views. Saw a big herd of mule deer in the open field near the lake going out.

Great hike! Little more information about the place for those who may not know; this is inside of Roxborough State Park. Day passes are $7, and there should be plenty of parking. The hike took us ~3 hours round trip and the path wasn't bad at all. Some wood block stairs in the beginning but only slight roots/rocks on the trail after. Great views of downtown Denver along the way/at the top!

Great hike, plenty of rest stops and shady portions. Most of it was great for trail running and the view at the top is definitely worth the hike

Carpenter Peak Trail is an easy, 6.2 mile hike that gives you views of Pike National Forest & Roxborough Park. If you're going to Roxborough State Park to view the red rocks, I don't recommended this trail, simply because the view at the peak isn't as spectacular as the view from Fountain Valley trail.
