Great, beautiful hike! Do the steep part first (enter the loop at the downhill leg of the trail). Dogs loved it. Wear good hiking shoes because the first part of the trail is steep and very rocky and the last part of the trail is loose sand and gravel (gradual decline). The first half of the loop is definitely challenging but so worth it when you reach the top because the views are amazing! Enjoy God's beautiful creation, be safe and have fun!

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.
