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!
