Nice family hike. I would recommend starting early there is not a lot of shade.

Really nice hike with great views and gets you up close to the amazing pinnacles. Couple of benches along the way, if you're so inclined.

Beautiful. Easy out and back trail. The end of the trail offer great view. No sheds though. Went out there this morning (around 6.30am on May20, 2018) so it felt nice when the sun was out. I could see it being super hot in mid-summer days.
there were some muddy spots in the beginning but they dried out pretty quickly.

Super easy hike. Bring the dogs or kids, and a lunch to eat at the end. Great early season hike, just be prepared for super muddy spots on the trail!

We did this trail at night. Started around 8pm. Took small kids and dogs with us. Fun trail and a great view. Lots of ambient light so we barely needed our lights.

Great trail but easier than local trail maps describe it. Still a nice little workout trail and relaxing view of both the pinnacles and Blue Mesa Reservoir at the top. Take a yoga mat or a chair for lounging at the big open lookout point.

Nice trail--was there on a wet day, recommend not going when it's been wet, as the soil gets pretty muddy and traffic contributes to trail degradation. But overall, the trail is well maintained and gives a great view of the Dillon Pinnacles. Dogs are allowed, on leash, so that's a plus!

Great views of the Pinnacles but you see it all from the road. No adventure around the next corner.

The trail is fairly level to begin with nice views of the reservoir, then a steady climb to the pinnacles. Very nice.

This trail ascends through sagebrush and conifers to offer views of the Dillon Pinnacles and the Blue Mesa. It is well-maintained and well-traveled. There are interpretive signs and resting benches along the way. You can take leashed dogs and horses on this trail.
