Didn't like it as much as the trail is actually a gravel / service road to the dam, however the views along the way are decent. A little steep at first, even out as you get closer to the smallish upper dam. Overall it's just OK, 3 stars for the exercise & views, but wouldn't recommend.

Great hike on the way to Colorado Springs from Denver! Great views and a 4 mile workout! The beginning of the hike ascends quite a bit for the first mile or so, but then the trail gets easier. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a moderate trail.

Fun Hike, great views, moderate ascent in the first mile then it tapers out.
