This hike was awesome! Great views on both sides of the trail that winds through a tall pine forest. The summit was well worth the steeper, rocky inclines at the end. My 7 month old Bernese Mountain Dog handled it like a champ! We even got to witness a proposal at the top, and she said yes! Amazing day, would definitely recommend and will be back! Out and back took about 2 hours and it’s less than an hour’s drive away from Denver!

Loved this quick hike! Overall this trail is accurately marked as moderate simply because of the incline at the last part of the hike. Definitely not too strenuous - I carried my two year old niece in my arms up the incline and most of the way back (our hiking backpack decided to malfunction before the hike). Not a crowded trail whatsoever which made it even more enjoyable! The view was gorgeous at the top! Parking is on the side of the road - lots of room to pull off to the side.

Great little hike, well maintained and easy to follow. Not overly strenuous except for some decent inclines at the top. Pretty good view at the top and especially liked the mountain range monument.

Loved this hike! Not crowded and dog friendly. Easy to moderate as you approach the summit. The trail condition was good and the views were beautiful.

Lovely, fairly easy trail. I entered it from Green Mountain East Trail. From there it's downhill just about all the way. Most aspen leaves are on the ground rather than on the trees. Trail is dirt and wide enough for 2 people to walk side by side.

went on this because I felt like my 5 year old daughter wouldn't be overwhelmed by it and would enjoy hiking to the top of a mountain. she called it "easy peasy lemon sqeezy" and hiked the whole thing with just a bit of hand holding for the trickier spots. definitely a good trail for all skill levels to get great views and climb a mountain too.

Great hike right outside Boulder. Took about 2 hours round trip. Multiple side trails along the way. Saw a flock of turkeys at the trailhead. Great views and a steep climb at the end. No snow on the trail at this elevation. Happy hiking!

Road side parking at the top of Flagstaff mountain. Great marked trail with rolling hills. Easy to moderate rating. Good mix of direct sun and tree cover. Pretty views!
