Great hike. I would put this in the hard category with Gregory Canyon Trail and Green Mountain Loop. All trails cover much of the same rocky and steep terrain. Not moderate.

This hike was beautiful, lush, and green with brooks, creeks, and stunning views. There's a decent amount of elevation gain, so it's not necessarily an easy hike, but it's a great workout and a less trafficked loop to hike in Boulder.

Do NOT hike his trail in the spring time! It was covered in snow - And steep with muddy and snowy does not mix well. I hated almost every minute of this hike. The view is hardly worth it either. The pros? It's off leash if you have the Boulder voice/sight permit and it's not very crowded. Other then that, I'm struggling to think of positives. Maybe in the summer?

Great trail. I came in off the ski jump trail and hiked up to Green Mountain summit. Great views.
