Easy hike but we did not go all the way to the end either, maybe about a mile or two. It is quite beautiful, full of aspen trees and wild flowers, great for the little ones. A little bit off of the trail there is a surprise waiting for you but I won't ruin the surprise for yo to explore. The trail is also partially shaded for at least the first mile or two. Lots of bikers in the afternoon hours so be prepared to move over a little to let them pass you.

A little snowy in early October, but beautiful none the less! Pretty busy after 10:00, parking was a little tricky, didn't see any bikes though. Overall a great hike, I will do it again!

Stunning fall hike -- exactly what I was hoping for! Went in late September and had phenomenal weather (clear skies, warm enough to wear a short sleeve tshirt at times, a fleece when it got chilly in the shade). We got there around 9am and it was decently crowded with cars and people, but the lower lot (coming from Denver) was completely open. By the time we left the hike, it was packed with traffic! My suggestion is to keep hiking until it completely opens up into panoramic views of everything. Breathtaking.

I feel like this is an easy trail, can be moderate if you go the full length of the trail. Quick access from Denver, beautiful vistas.

Love this hike. It's wonderful in the winter and especially pretty in the Fall.
