Beautiful area with very little foot traffic, especially for Colorado. Right now, the wild flowers are blooming so there are so many beautiful colors and everything was very green.

We loved this hike! Close to Denver, beautiful views and magical forest with lots of wild flowers. Could also tell that it would have been awesome for mountain biking.

Loved this hike. Seriously gorgeous “fairy” forest like feel the most you get on the trail. Steady incline up the whole way. Kicked my butt a few times but the view at the top is worth it all.

Nice hike on a snowy day! Beautiful incline along the creek and through the trees. No others out on the trail. View point was nice and cloudy with the snow but still pretty.

Beautiful hike through pretty pine trees and gorgeous mountain views. Some muddy spots but nothing bad. Peaceful and pretty! Not too strenuous which made it very enjoyable.

This was a nice short hike, about 3 miles. Nice trail, a little muddy from melting snow, not bad though. Quite a bit up hill but very doable. View at the top is beautiful and a good place to have lunch. Nice mountain stream along the bottom half. Will be back. A good place to take out of towners.

Nice steady incline on the way up. March-May is a little in spots located under tree cover along with mud. Can get a little crowded on weekends so hit the trail early.

Walked to the trailhead and got so muddy just doing that... we got less than 0.1 into the hike and went back. Girl in front of me said she fell almost 4 times and it wasn’t worth it.

Lovely hike along the creek. Very icy during the winter, bring poles or micro spikes. Nice view at the top of surrounding mountains and the town

Nice easy shaded trail. Easy enough for the dog as he made it up just fine. View of Kittredge was pretty nice.

Nice trail. Beautiful day for hiking in January! Views were awesome. This trail is an actual loop. We measured 2.8 miles then walked along the creek to make it 3.0 miles.

Beautiful trail. Like the variety of terrain. Rock climbers can find decent bouldering here. The first half is a little steep but rewarding! Heart rate up to a beautiful view. A quick and rewarding hike.

Great hike if your crunched for time & need a quick mountain getaway close to home. Miles tracked for the loop was only 2.76, not 3 as stated.

Nice variety of terrain. Some tough elevation gain for a little stretch but still fun! The view from the top is great and makes for a good, quick hike.

This seemed like a more easy to moderate trail. Beautiful!

We go in the second trailhead. Love the shade and the little brook. The wildflowers were pretty near the first of August. My 3-year-old made it up on his own. It's a good workout.

Nice walk along the creek for the lower trail. Switchbacks get steeper, but still and easy hike. Top 200 yards to the top are hardest (for an easy trail!). Worth the view from the point of the town of Kittridge and panorama of Mt Evans. Nice easy walk on the way down.

Beautiful at the top

Lots of uphill out and down hill back. I would call it closer to moderate. Great views at the top.
