We got there early on a Friday morning and had no parking issues. It was busy, but not crowded. A really good hike with gorgeous views of the city. Minor climbs, but we saw tons of dogs mastering it just fine.

Pretty hot in the sun, but totally worth the views of the Coors Brewery and dowtnown! You can even see DIA from the top. Made the loop including the summit in 1h47m, 4.36 miles.

Nice rock stairs and good views. Stopped at end of cedar gulch today but hope to go up further next time. Some nice butterflies and wildflowers. Very rocky in some areas so maybe not ideal for small dogs but , doable. Bring lots of water bc you will be in full sun for much of it.

You get good view from all direction while you complete this trail. Easy trail and good for spotting wild deers too. Best part is it's do near to Denver.

Took our dog on his first hike here and he loved it. This is a beautiful trail for the whole family. We can't wait to do it again soon.

Hiked this trail on 4th of July. Lots of people out that day. Most of the hike was moderate with switchbacks and some stairs and rocky areas to climb. Mostly sunny but a few spots under a tree for shade. Pretty wildflowers along the way and some great views of Golden.

Beautiful wildflowers in the spring! Steep hiking on the back of the loop, but a great view at the top. Most of the climb was moderate switchbacks. Great for dogs
