I hiked the O'Fallon loop and then hiked up to Panorama Point and down the Pano trail. Snowpacked in shady places, but I didn't need any traction devices. Dogs enjoyed it and I only saw one other person the whole hike!

I really enjoyed the various terrain and amazing scenery...a new fave for sure!

This is my go-to hike when I want a montane setting versus the exposure of the foothills. However, just be aware the hike as mapped on All Trails isn’t correct anymore. The park has reconfigured the trails and while there’s still a loop, it’s ~3.5 miles now. Check trailhead for map. If going counter clockwise, West Ridge Trail to Bear Creek Trail to Bear Creek Cutoff. Of course, since the park is connected to Pence & Corwina Parks, it’s easy to add mileage. The Chimney Shelter Trail is a nice short and interesting jaunt if you like that sort of thing.

A nice bit of elevation the first half mile but then it levels out. Great hike with kids/dogs. Parking is limited.

Did West Ridge and Meadow View trails. Pretty outing with some nice views. Moderate incline with good shade coverage.

This is a great trail if you just want a quick getaway. We finished the trail in about 90 minutes (we of course had a dog who needed to smell every tree).Our dog also loved jumping in the small creek on the last 1/4 of the trail. Beautiful views. Mountain bikes are allowed on a little bit of it, so the end of the trail was busier than the rest. Close to Denver. Good food nearby in Morrison or Kittredge.

If you're a fan of a simple walk in the woods, this is a good one for exactly that. Wildflowers and firs and pine. After that initial ascent, easy hike throughout.

Not difficult in the least. I encountered a minimal amount of people though, which was nice. I went on a late morning hike on a Wednesday.

This is a nice quiet trail if you get there early , before 9 am. Signage wasn't great for Upper Loop trail but only one or two forks in trail. Nice fishing and picnic area near parking.

Be prepared for a steep incline for the first mile of the trail and a very narrow path throughout. But very quiet, beautiful water at multiple points, and very picturesque!

The trail is closed in some parts. Hard to follow, got lost on multiple off shoot trails. Not great views.

An ok trail that is rather easy after an initial short climb. The highlight is a brief good view of Mount Evans while the lowlight is the trail goes right behind some houses.

Great first hike of the season. Some of the trails it tells you to take are closed for restoration efforts so you need to take alternate trails sometimes. Fortunately there's are many to choose from. There was little to no snow on 4/2/17 but a little mud here and there, nothing more then trail shoes needed.

Great hike with great views. I ran into several people on the hike but still had a chance to feel alone with nature. Mainly stayed on the West Ridge Loop Trail, which had mountain bikers for about a half mile.

I hiked this trail on a beautiful Sunday afternoon (today) and was surprised that there were a very small number of people on it :) It was very quiet and peaceful, except for a short distance that runs along a road which isn't heavily trafficked. The only section of the trail I consider Moderate is the 1st 1/2 mile or so....It's a decent ascent, but not Hard. I consider the other 3 1/2 miles Easy and very pleasant - hard-packed dirt path with beautiful mountain views. Aspens are now slightly past peak, and wildflowers are done.
