Great trail. Full of snow, but that covered up the mud so that was nice. Awesome views for not a lot of mileage

Great trail. Amazing views. A bit snowy, icy and muddy in some spots. But the rest of the trail wasn’t too bad. Saw some deer down below the trail.

Ascent is moderate. Worth it at the top. Great views of Denver and the Rockies along the top. The way back down was muddy at times..recommend trekking poles. Nice right before sunset so you can watch the sunset over the mountains on the way back to the car. Saw some deer in the distance.

Pretty decent trail. I would recommend for trail runners as it’s not a challenging hike. Great views of mountains as well as the downtown. There were a couple icy snow patches in some areas that don’t get sun. Be careful on these!

I recommend this trail for anyone looking for a mountain experience without actually going into the mountains. Excellent views of the city, Red Rocks, and the mountains. Initial ascent is more intermediate but I’d say 2/3 of the trail is the easy level. Hiked 12/8. Very slushy, snowy, and muddy on most of the trail. Mud was so thick toward the end it pulled the sole of my not so great hiking boots off the boot.

Très facile et peu à voir. Sympa pour faire une sortie à côté de Denver sans aller trop loin.

Nice sunday morning hike!

These trails are pretty great! Seems to be a popular place for biking, running, and hiking. Great views and fairly simply hiking. There are a couple of steep places and loose rocks along the paths. Definitely recommend!

No way should these trails be considered Easy. Very Rocky & a lot of loose Gravel.

Busy mountain biking trail with not a touch of shade. Rough road at times with lots of loose rocks. Saw one rattlesnake going up. Great views of the entire area!!

I do this trial often, great after work one. Quick but has a good incline in the beginning. Stays good to hike in the winter and has gorgous wildflowers in spring/summer.

Sunset/night hike! Beautiful night. Views from the top were great. Didn’t see any rattlesnakes thank goodness- zero shade hence the night hike... perfect temp out tonight
