Putting this review here because I went to this trail trying to climb .6 miles up to Ormes Peak. Not sure if Ormes is near by or what, but I ended up climbing 2.38 miles to what I believe is Cascades Mountain, on the Heizer trail. The waypoint mark on the map seems to be a little off trail...
That being said, it was a nice trail that starts off pretty easy and gets more moderate. The trailhead is in a residential area up a one lane road on a hill. Only enough parking for about 5-6 vehicles, so get there early. I was glad I brought my walking sticks for the slippery loose rock on the way down. I packed out the only piece of litter I saw, and the highway noise disappears fairly quickly up the trail. The dog and I enjoyed our hike and the amazing view of Pikes Peak at the top.
