Great hike. I'd say it was closer to the easy side. Parked in the second parking lot (Evergreen Trail West) and hiked a long loop that totaled 6 miles. Walked up Evergreen Trail East then walked around and came down Evergreen Trail West. The Summit view was beautiful.
Arrived to parking lot at 12pm on Saturday in August, and found a spot easily. Some interaction with mountain bikers, less so with hikers.
Total 6 mile loop, including a few stops for photos, took a total of 2 hours 40 minutes - app says moving time was 2 hours. Easy to get to from Denver. Paved road to a well-maintained dirt parking lot.

Love this trail and have hiked it as well as mountain biked it numerous times over the years. Our last hike just a couple of days ago started at 7:30 am and lasted just a little over 3 hours. It was still pretty brisk as we started our day and quickly warmed up as we made our way to the top. Hardly any people at first, though it got quite busy about 2 hours into our hike.

Two adults and two kids, we took our sweet time, taking in the scenery and stopping along the way to admire the park's beauty. You can walk for hours in this park as the trails intertwine and loop, eventually leading back to either one of the parking lots at Three Sisters. We took Evergreen Mountain West all the way to the Summit Trail and came back down following Evergreen Mountain East and returned to the main parking lot through Ranch View.

This is a very popular park and the trails get very busy. Kid friendly, even the youngest kids as there are some trails that are really short and easy. A lot of hikers and mountain bikers throughout the day.

We did this today, started about 9:30. It was a little warm, but we passed through the shade of the trees frequently and stayed cool enough. Flowers were pretty. The scent of the ponderosa pines was wonderful. We saw several bikers, just a couple hikers. It's simple to make way for them because the trail is gentle and wide enough. Well worth it if you're already in the area.

Great summer morning hike. Shady, not too crowded early in the day. We passed a fair amount of bikers, but all were very nice. Moderate trail, easy at times. Great view at the top and very well maintained. I'll be doing this one again!
