Very nice hike to Upper Columbine and then Spring Creek trail but there is a LOT of loose gravel and young children should not be on parts of it as the trail has washed out with very narrow trail and steep, sometimes sheer drop offs. 4.27 miles for us with 927 vertical feet.

It was a great hike with beautiful views! The path can get a little slippery with gravel, especially when it rains, so make sure to wear good hiking shoes. I would definitely recommend it!

The views are pretty. Most of the trail has very loose gravel. There is not a good area where you can let kids down and play/eat. The loop is confusing as you get to the “end/top” of the loop, and it seems to turn into another trail. We ended up coming back down the same way we went up.

Terrain made this one a bit challenging for our dogs. Besides loose, pebbles rock most of the way, the views were beautiful and the incline made for a great workout.

beautiful trail with gorgeous views! steep going up and it is a work out but it gets easier. I'm not a big fan of Cheyenne Cañon because it's so packed on the weekends but I highly recommend going on a weekday when there are less people and more nature to experience.

Great trail with beautiful views along the way. Steep start but definitely mellows off.

Good trails. Steep in some places, be careful for people on bikes.
