This trail isn't too strenuous, but it covers a lot of different terrain. A lot of little critters skitter around on the rocks and in the grasses. Vultures circle overhead. Only saw two other hikers and a ranger on the whole path. It was a great hike. Trail head was near the park visitor center.

Love this hike. This park is one of the best kept secrets in Colorado. Come for the hikes, stay for the sunset!

While everyone and their dogs are slogging through the canyon this trail is nearly empty. It's perfect if you're looking for solitude.

This is probably the nicest trail in the park. It has a little bit of everything: walking near the canyon, under the state highway bridge, along the creek, up to the grasslands. Very nice. Moderate hike, four miles, took us just under two hours.
