Soooo pretty! Spikes were helpful today, especially for the first part from the parking lot until the actual canyon.

HikingGreat!IcyRockySnow

We walked on the upper/higher trail on the way out and did a zigzag on the way back so we could get closer to the river. Spikes weren't necessary but we did slip and slide down a rock face while exploring a smaller less traveled trail. Most people using this area are there to fish. Highly recommend as the views are wonderful.

Loved this trail hiking along the driver. Hiking boots & crampons worked for me. Some snowpacked areas, some dry. I had no service therefore could not record my hike. I will be back again for this one! Totally worth the drive and not crowded.

Arrived a little after noon and there were still a few spots in the parking lot. No fees for parking. Trail was easy to find, and was well packed by those that went before us. Started out without spikes, but ended up putting them on after only a few minutes. Could probably have continued without them, but felt a bit safer with them on. This was a good hike for young kids. Nothing too scenic, but nice to be out in the woods for a while. Saw quite a few fishermen along the trail, which isn't surprising given its location along a gold medal stream. Will definitely come back to this one; although maybe a bit earlier next time because the sun disappeared behind the hills shortly after 3 PM.

HikingGreat!Snow

Absolutely gorgeous! Only saw about 10 people on a Monday afternoon. Yaktrax were helpful in the snow at the beginning of the trail, but were not necessary. Amazing views of the river all the way down! Can’t wait to go back one day.

This was a great walk. I wouldn’t call it moderate. It was very easy. It was incredibly beautiful. I will definitely be back.

Simply gorgeous trail along the river. Snowy in some spots but hiking boots were fine. Parking lot was full but not many hikers, mostly fishers down in the river.

Great hike and very scenic. I had fished this stretch of the S. Platte, but never followed the trail all the way. Icy at first and last half mile. Spikes handy but not necessary.

I've done this trail several times - twice in spring and once later in the summer. although great whenever you go, Spring is cheeseman at it's best.

11/28/20 – Beautiful hike in a canyon along a river. Not too difficult with a combination of shaded and sun-exposed areas. Parking was limited on a Saturday afternoon, mostly populated with anglers.

Wow! Incredibly beautiful. So many neat spots to stop and enjoy along the way. My only regret is not bringing a beer to enjoy
