Open as of 7/5. Muddy in some spots but overall in good condition. A few bushes have encroached on the trail during the public hiatus.

Ran into a trail maintenance worker near the trailhead on July first, he told us it's open so we did it and had a good time. The trail head had a chain over it but there was no sign saying the trail was closed

This is the third time I’ve been hiking at Red Rocks this year and WOW, was this trail icy. The snow is so packed in some areas, it’s hard to tell that there are even stairs there. Would definitely recommend spikes. The last leg is an actual road, which was a bit unfortunate, but to be expected at RR. Beautiful views and would imagine its quite easy in the summer!

Parking lot open! Trail was clear until about .25 in where it gets icy in the shade. Fine if you go slow. Toddler and kiddo friendly overall!

Very slick and icy in some spots. I would consider this hike more towards the moderate side, you definitely get your heart working going up the stairs.

icy in the shade of the rocks, but well enough traveled that ice is sandy, so ok without traction. Lots of deer on a Wednesday morning.

Beautiful views!! But be careful because one side of the loop is very icy/muddy and the other portion has you walk on the road and it gets pretty narrow through the arch. We had a great time and will come back!
