Nice hike. I took the trail up and the road down do to issues with my knees. Nice views of GWS. There is a picnic table at the top which would be good for lunch.

It's not a "wild" trail by any means, but if you want a pristine view of Glenwood Springs, this is the trail to take. You can get a solid post card picture. The trail is wide and mostly paved, great for biking (down) and jogging. Optionally, you can take the hiking trail less traveled that shortcuts and is more challenging, a wonderful leg workout. It is mostly uncovered along the trail, lots of sun exposure. Highly recommended.

Great views... wear sunblock for sure. We took many cut through trails... didn't realize it wasn't actually trail. Don't be fooled bc it's pretty intense if you take this route. Stay on the gravel winding path

Easy trail all uphill but flat and paved. Not much of a chance for twisted ankles! Wear sunblock!!!

Great trail close by and you have the option to run or walk which is great for training! Family friendly.

The beginning of the actual hiking trail was strenuously steep. Taking the gravel road is much easier but we alternate. Great views and fun hike.
