A great trail for any hiker. Steep moments but only 3.5 miles. View at the top of the loop worth it and you can keep climbing higher if you are so inclined....

Great hike. Parking is limited, free to boulder residents $5 for non residents. We went on a Saturday around 9:30, off road parking are all full. Fortunately there was someone leaving so we got a spot. It took us 2.5-3 hours from amphitheater to saddle rock then down to Gregory canyon. Gregory which is less steep and much easy on your knees coming down this side. The whole trail are mostly in shade which was very nice! Lots of photo ops along the way.

Great short hike close to the city! We went up Saddle Rock and then down Gregory Canyon. Definitely a good workout and some awesome views of Boulder! Parking is limited at the trailhead and costs $5

So I've actually done this hike 3 times, twice I went up Gregory Canyon and down Saddle Rock, but I liked it better going up Saddle Rock and down Gregory Canyon. Definitely a harder hike going up Saddle Rock. Not as crowded as others near here but still gets busy. I also park at Chatauqua and hike in on Baseline Trail since parking is limited.

Great trail. Longer than 3.3 miles. Just under 5mi if you start at the bottom of the parking lot. Really pretty, well marked. Views are good and trails were well marked. Definitely steep going down saddle rock trail. Maybe go up Saddle Rock amd down gregiry canyo , might be easier on the knees. Killer part of the hike was my black bear siting right near the parking area.

Great hike. Took us about 4 hours with stopping and setting up hammocks. A lot of rocks and steep incline and decline in the beginning and end.
