Long hike but very doable, not many challenging portions of the trail. Breathtaking views all along the trial!

great hike, took us about 5 hours for a total of 11 miles (18 km) and 2000 feet elevation - round trip. We are slow :) but it was an easy to moderate hike. Make sure you wear a lot of sunscreen, you are nearly 90% exposed to the elements and the sun is strong in Colorado.

What a great trail. Great views. The only thing park doesn't open until 7am, so no getting in earlier. Price is 7.00 if you don't have a state park pass. Took Staunton Ranch trail, Bugle Elk trail, Chimney Rock trail to Elk Creek Trail. 10 miles rt according to our Fitbit GPS

Took Staunton ranch, scout line, marmot, chimney and elk falls for a distance just short of 7 miles. It's a fairly hot hike with some shaded trees dispersed along the way. Filtered another liter of water from the falls and needed it. Moderate amount of mixed traffic.
