Coming from Oregon, this is not what I would consider a Butte. This was more a pile of rocks. But it's a nice short hike to the top. Takes probably only 10 minutes with a nice view - unfortunately it mostly overlooks the neighborhoods around it.

Didn’t realize that this was smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood and golf club. Pretty awkward but did the short hike around the whole thing anyways. Heavily trafficked since most residents are home nowadays. Will do again if I just need to leave the house and only drive 10 minutes.

To the top and loop around.

Nice easy loop with a short climb to the top.

Short with views of Meeker, Long's, and other peaks. Devil's Backbone too. The foreground is residential but a wealthy neighborhood so it adds to the view if anything.

Nice quick hike. A few rocky spots but easy to navigate. Some nice views especially to the west.

Very quick hike up and back. Lots of flies at the top today, but still a fun fast little trail.

Great 360° view but very short hike. Rocky at the top so despite what others said, I don't think this is good for children.

this is my very first trail I walked alone. Perfect for beginners. I broke a good sweat and enjoyed the beautiful view at the top. houses kinda "ruined" the scenery aspect of the walk but, the hike was worth it. took me maybe 20 minutes to get to the top. very short but, like I said, perfect for the beginner!

Great short walk to the top of Mariana Butte perfect for watching the sunrise over the front range and hitting Long's Peak. The trail starts at the golf course. We did this just before sunrise and missed the turn off (left) for the hike to the top. There is no sign at the fork. The main trail takes you east around the Butte, but not to the top. We saw a bobcat wandering around the Butte too.

Short trail, but I brought my dogs and they had such a fun time! Perfect little trail for their little legs. We live close by so we’ll be back often!
