Total waste of time unless just going to exercise. Little to no views on entire trail. Trail shared between hikers (many with dogs) and bicyclists. Trail not wide enough for bicycles and walkers - have to smoosh self against rock wall to let bicycles though. Very rocky trail, uphill, moderate hike. Top of hill has mansion and visitor center. Halfway up the trail splits and you can go to see Buffalo Bill grave and souvenir shop. No views from there either. Viewers at Buffalo Bill grave to lookout at city of Denver are behind cell phone tower, electric cable supports and pine trees. Overall - pretty lame.

Great for a day hike. Good views! Trail hard to follow though, rather confusing.
