Good day for a hike . A little overcast but it made the hike very enjoyable. Went up Fowler then back up rattlesnake South Boulder Creek was flowing nice. Trail not very busy today at all. Had a great time views were spectacular as always. Climbers out diehards as always:-)

Awesome trail! No snow! Gorgeous scenery!

A wonderful trail. Steep climbs, rocky in some spots. Killer views and plenty of cool areas to stop an enjoy then if you need a breather. Challenging but not brutal.

Steep and beautiful. The city will be in view on the way home, with any luck it will be illuminated in light. Otherwise, lovely views of the canyon.

Great trail, loved the steep incline leading up to the Walker Ranch loop trail. Gets pretty rocky in spots which is fine going up but just a little more challenging on your way down. The views are outstanding and the trail is maintained superbly! Dry all the way up to the Walker loop.
