Gorgeous views and well paved trails! Would say it’s more on the easy side of moderate.

Great hike with some pretty views. It starts easy with some down hill, and during the middle of the loops becomes more challenging with a little incline. On 1/5/18 there were only a few patches of ice in some shady spots but overall clear.

Not as popular as the Castle and Meadow trails. Nice and quiet trail with some fun elevation change. I took a detour at the Tower trail for the view up top. Fun hike!

Great hike. Starts off deceivingly easy then gets a little craggy in places. Will definitely do again!!

Beautiful hike close to Denver. First mile was mild downhill with good shade coverage. Moderate incline to the top, then to meet with Meadow Trail with no trees at this point for shade. You can just take meadow Trail back to the parking lot or a great 1/2 mile addition is Tower Trail for two look out points. Really cool hike with the structures and would be great for out of towners.

The first short part of this loop is a lot of downhill mountain bike type trails. The next is a lot gorgeous in and out of meadows and forest. Good views of snow caps mountains in the background. We looped in the Walker home ruins pretty cool spot. Easy trail to hike and easily navigated. Happy hiking

Definitely some speed from the get go. Quite a few small drops and a few rocks on the trail keep it exciting . Will also be coming back to run the trail.

One of my favorite parks to trail run and this is a very nice trail. About half shaded/woods and half exposed.

Little over 4 miles. Get there early for parking. If you go down castle trail first you will have shade on the loop in end! Good loop

Great trail with a good mix of terrain. Moderate level, due to a lot of decently steep incline and decline sections. Great for the pups !
