great hike on a cool day, accessed hard time trail from ecology Park and took it to the great escape trail that lead to a nice ledge for lunch. 6 hours with lots of stopping

Bring sunscreen and lots of water! The hike was enjoyable to start. We struggled a little coming back out—lots of sun, no shade. There was evidence of wildlife all over the trails, but we only saw small lizards or skinks.

Great trail, great views, wildlife, dry & rocky but fun time. The valleys between the mountains are a must see.

It’s a fun trail because there’s a variety of difficulty and great scenery.

First to Review

Hiked 1/2 of Hard Time trail. Nice trail with varying terrain. Enjoyed the Southern Colorado Juniper Forrest. Great winter low elevation hike. Will return to do the whole out and back hike!
