Very beautiful views. I combined this hike with the zorro trail and dinosaur ridge. I would rate it more towards moderate. It’s not a hard hike, but it also not very easy. If you are not in shape the climbing might cause some issues.

This trail had nice views and diverse terrain. I would say it is not kid friendly as there are many places a child could fall over the edge and parts that were very steep or rocky.

Great evening hike close to Denver. Went Monday evening and there were few others on the trail. Cool view of Red Rocks
