This trail is so lame. If you want anything resembling a challenge, stay away. Views are average and too heavily trafficked. Find better trails.

A lot of cars in parking lot at trailhead, but very few eople on trails on Sunday afternoon. Dirt with somewhat rocky paths wide enough in most places for friends to walk side by side...lovely fall colors. Constant cardio workout, but not extreme.

Most of this hike is shaded. Plenty of picnic tables at the parking lot, as well as at the shelter located on Tower Trail.

My kids, 11 and 9 loved this train. We went to see the castle ruins which was an easy hike. Then we hiked Two-Which was short but had some incline and then we hiked Walters's Dream which you can see the beginning plans for s summer White House in 1914. It was about 5 miles total. Then we went over to see Red Rocks!

I loved this with our kids, ages 8 and under, and for our speed, this is one of my favorite hikes we've found so far! Dirt paths are pretty stroller friendly. Really wide, smooth trail, and gorgeous views. It's a great hiking option for visitors to Colorado who haven't caught up with the altitude. Restrooms are nice and clean. We will definitely be back to check out other loops!

short hike, took us less than 2 hrs to finish 5 miles based on tracking. The last part of the loop is more forestry with streams and waterfall. overall a decent afterwork hike.

Need to follow signs for Tower trail, meadow trail, and castle trail. Walker home ruins were neat.

Scenic hike with great view points and house ruins. Beautiful! Not much of a workout but a really pretty hike nonetheless.

Great hike, on Meadow trail was a lot of snow. Jefferson County has a lot of great trails. We added in Two Dog trail very steep but nice view.

I did the castle trail and it was very enjoyable. The open meadows give way to neat, old ruins. The history makes for a good read and there are plenty of animals near by such as wild turkeys, deer, snakes and birds.

This trail is great but it's often so heavily packed that if you're not going on a weekday, it's really just not that much fun. I do recommend it for families and kids though!!

great trail to take visitors coming in to Colorado visit. I would say it should be treated easy with great views.

Great trail! Beautiful everywhere! Deer and rabbits and the fabulous scenery! Only downside was this app crashes right as we were nearing the parking lot so that was a bummer. Otherwise great afternoon. Last time I had checked we had hiked 4.2 miles.

Beautiful trail! Accidentally took the wrong path at the end and added a half mile of downhill and a brutal half mile of uphill, but we doubled back and made it to the top. Gorgeous views. Very easy if you don't make the mistake I did.
