A bit crowded and very hot with not a ton of shade coming from east trailhead. A good spot for elevation gain and a long hike if you're up for the heat and crowds. Can't beat the proximity to Denver tho!

Tried this trail twice, from both the west and east trailheads. If you don't feel like you can complete the entire trail, start from the west trailhead and connect to the tower trail to get to the Eagle eye shelter and lookout tower, then cut across Meadow trail to get to the Walker Home Ruins and take Castle trail back to the parking lot. If you have a bit more time, definitely add on the Walker's dream trail like another user suggested!

I took Castle trail, to Meadow, to Ute, and went around Devil's Elbow. Came back around via Meadow. Challenging and steep at times in the back end but the views are incredible and completely worth it.

Great trail system just outside of Denver. Not a lot of traffic and some cool history.

Busier on the lower mlle ... head to the right trail early on for less traffic. Though busy trail sharing was easy, friendly Coloradans all.
