This is not an actual trail, but a social trail where you have to climb over a fence to get to it. Shouldn't be listed here.

Since it's not a planned and built trail, it can be difficult and dangerous in places where (as these types of trails cause) erosion is damaging the steep parts.

Love love this trail as a quick hike but a hike that’s not so quick. The sceneries and nature tidbits are loaded within this hike as well. My dog loves this one so much!

Pretty enjoyable, quick hike in the area. It's nice to get a different perspective of the front range. My dog enjoyed the breeze at the top.

I didn't notice any trash up there like the other poster said, but there is some graffiti.

Was disappointed at the amount of trash and graffiti along the trail. Beer cans, beer bottles, broken glass, a corona box, dirty socks, empty shooters. Pretty gross that stuff was just left up there. People tagging rocks with names and dates....

Decent views of clear creek canyon and golden. Very smoggy and hazy today. Only saw one other person at the top not too many people on the trail. Limited shade and fierce sun until the clouds rolled in.
