Really nice and easy, nice views of pikes and the city. Cool rock formations. Some people with dogs off leash, but not too many. Nice for a quick 45 minute jaunt.

I am not experienced for one but this is not easy at all .. the most part is difficult to climb and then very steep at points! stay aware at all times. I did feel great about it when I accomplished such a hike! I will do it again but not so soon!!

Palmer park is one of my favorite trails to go on. Just be careful when you go on them for the first time because I've kind of gotten lost on them before because there are not too many signs and there are a lot of trails that connect up with each other.

This trail is really quite easy but so beautiful! Right in the heart of the city but you would never know it while you are on any of these trails.

Nice easy walk/hike in town. Good views of the town and not too busy, even on the weekend.

Great views! It's marked as difficult but it is rather easy. It's not always well marked. It's supposed to be 2.5 miles but it seems so much shorter. It's very rocky so be ready for that. You might miss some of the views because you're too busy looking at the ground watching out for rocks. There are so many great views though so checkout all the ledges. The parking lot is pretty small but there is roadside parking just before the park entrance. There is also a bathroom building but I didn't check it out so I'm not sure if they're functioning. Overall, I would highly recommend!
