Definitely a wonderful walk, beautiful views and not a ton of people. Earlier in the day is better.

What pretty trail. Loved the water, boulders and destination of the reservoir. This was a great hike just right for us, our dog and 4 kids under 7.

Great easy trail that leads to Rampart Reservoir. Beautiful scenery along a trail easy enough for the kiddos to enjoy too.

Nice trail. pretty easy, though the distance makes up for it for a good workout. Pretty windy at times around the reservoir.

More like a Moderate Hike. Great trail, in March plenty of water roaring down the river & opens up to Rampart Reservoir with plenty of people fishing. Great 1/2 day to full day track. Take Yaktracks if snow on ground for icy patches. Took out of state family their for hike & picnic & loved it!

I walked my dogs here today (3/7/17) and the weather was perfect. The sound of the trees waving in the wind and the echoes of the stream that hand rails the trail will allow anyone to temporarily forget the stress of life while enjoying the glory of mother nature. I culminated my trail and the Rampart Reservoir, where my dogs enjoyed some well deserved ice cold water while soaking in the warm Colorado sun. I even had the privilege to witness a pack of approximately 100 elk running their game trail. They congregated for about a minute and vanished just as quickly as they appeared. I recommend this to any outsider young or senior.
