A very easy, family friendly trail. A wide dirt road leads up to the mesa, and then continues into the pine forest.

A great hike for the whole family that’s not too difficult. If you want more of a challenge, there’s the chance to take a couple of different other trails along the way, too. I did this one with an injured ankle and had a great time!

Giving 3 stars because about half of the trail is a road-like dirt/gravel path - feels more like a "walk" than hike. Aside from that, definitely an easy hike, even when it gets rocky. When you're out of the tree cover, the views of the city and mountains are beautiful.

The McClintock Trail is a bit steep and includes rocky terrain and stairs. The Mesa trail is graded and easier. Heavily forested and very nice in hot weather.

Such a gift. Terrific for a group of almost any age and in any season. Just remember to pick up your trash and dog poop bags. Whew, nasty to see that.

Great hike with the fam! Perfect for kids and lots of fun trails to choose from! We were glad that we downloaded the map that helped us get back to where we started.

So beautiful this time of year (really lives up to the "enchanted" title) and much less crowded than some of the other Chautauqua trails.

Gorgeous views of Boulder. We got a little turned around where Kohler Mesa trail starts, and ended up accidentally going around that little spur. Regardless, a lovely, short hike.
