Good trail with great views. I exercise every day so it was an easy hike for me. My daughter and husband, who aren't as active, thought it was a good workout. Highly recommend!

Great trail with good views.

Great trail, moderately easy. Light-moderately trafficked, no one wearing masks or maintaining 6 feet distance though. Loved the views!

This is a great trail for running there’s moderate inclines occasionally some really good views and then enjoyable speedy track. Turn right immediately for a bigger opening challenge.

Great hike/trail run. There were spots on Red Rock Canyon trail segment that were icy and muddy but easy to navigate with the right shoes.

Did this hike with my partner and our dog. Mesa has some elevation gain but it’s a nice wide, easy walk. We came back via Greenlee which had some icy patches but passable. A little more narrow and rugged than Mesa but nothing too crazy. Great views and scenery. Perfect for dogs and kids too.

What a beautiful trail with great views!

Fun family trail. Went on more than Mesa. Would definitely recommend this!

Beautiful views. I recommend getting started early on these sunny days because it did get quite hot.

This is the best playground ever. Our 9 and 10 year old loved this place. This is a diluted version of the Garden of the Gods - way less busy and just as amazing.
