A nice ride for green horses and riders EXCEPT for irresponsible dog owners who use it as a dog park. One solution to avoid the dogs is to ride the Kodels area. I would not recommend riding up to K-12 as the slick rock gets narrow and dangerous. Trailer parking is easy at Opel Hill and the start of the trail is directly across the road. Riding around the Snooks Bottom area is an option too- it’s easy and lightly traveled but not as scenic.

Great hike! Took a group of four teen girls and they loved it! Beautiful scenery and got to see bighorn sheep which was so cool!

We took this hike with a 2 year old, three 4 year olds and a 7 year old. Many fun rocks to climb on but a lot of cactus if you get off of the trail. Many trails in the area so we hiked some of No Throughfare Canyon Trail, but the creek, holes and waterfall are completely dry. Overall very easy hike to avoid the snow.

Have done this trail 3 times (once by myself, with mom, and with Jay). It is easy and brings you to these large rocks you can walk through and see a view of the town below and on the other side a view into the canyon. Went at sunset with Jay and as it became dusk there are lots of bats that live within the cracks of the rocks, awesome to see and hear them flying around looking for dinner.

Great hike with the kids 9, 6 and 4 with the dog. Was our first trail to hike when we first moved to the area. Great intro to Colorado hiking.

I took my 2 cousins, one is 5 and one is 7. They both had fun and it was easy for them yet still fun for me. Beautiful rock formations

This is a really beautiful hike, wish the trail was a little better marked. The trail markers were not always helpful. We got off course and found it on our way back down. Once you get to Devils Kitchen it's pretty amazing. The Colorado National Monument is beautiful so put it on your to do list!

Pretty easy hike, some steep up hills but is definitely worth it the view is amazing! Trail is kind of hard to navigate towards the top (as long as you are going up it's the right direction) I find the best time to go is in the morning between 8-10 you'll stay cool in the shade most of the time. Great for kids of all ages but no dogs unfortunately.
