The trail is 5.5 miles, beautiful hike some incline areas but it levels out quickly. We did it in 2 hours and 48 minutes and that was with me having to stop and catch my breath!

We did this hike the day after an 8 inch spring snow. We were able to do this without snowshoes but they would have come in handy a couple of times. Parts had deep snow, parts were very slushy. Nice easy trail for just about any skill level or for getting low landers used to the altitude. There are no views of the mountains but there are awesome views of the east plains and Denver. You can even see the airport form here. At the half way point there is a nice bench to sit and have lunch. Trails is pretty exposed the first half and mostly through forest the second half. It was quiet the day we were there but do to the proximity to Denver it can get crowded on the weekends.

Started out at the upper parking lot. Great view and changing scenery. Some decent uphill but nothing "hard."

Took my dog out for his first hike here. I thought it was a good one. Not a lot of traffic on Saturday afternoon which was nice. No super steep elevations just a nice relaxing trail
