Took Staunton Ranch Trail to Red Wall Climbing Access and back. My phone measured just over 5 miles with our short detour to see the historic cabins. Got to the parking lot about 10am. Lots had some open spaces. I was surprised at how few people we saw on the trails given the number of cars in the lots. SRT is very well groomed, felt more like a walk a in the woods than a hike. We did see several mountain bikers and equestrians until we took the turnoff for the climbing access, which is hikers only. There is an elevation increase on the the Red Wall Climbing Access but it’s relatively short and well worth the views at the summit.

Staunton has a great trail system! Very well maintained and marked. We ended up adding the Old Mill section for an extra 1.8 miles. Not many views but fun to see the Old Mill Historical site and the cabins. Started around 7:45 and not many people. Pretty crowded by the time we finished. Many bikers. Will come back for sure.

No one was on Red Wall Climbing Access this morning. A nice hike off the main Staunton Ranch trail. Trails very well marked. Started hiking around 7am. Great views from the summit. We continued up SR to Marmot Passage (was pretty busy with hikers, horses and bikers) to Scout Line. Hikers only on SL which was nice. Parking places available at 10:30 when we left.

The main Staunton Ranch Trail is pretty smooth and well-maintained, but high traffic on the weekends--lot of mountain bikes to step aside for and the occasional horse. Few people turned up the Red Wall Climbing Access trail, I don't think people know there's still a trail to hike to the summit. Main trail was very busy, but we didn't see a soul from the time we turned off on the Red Wall Climbing Access Trail, to the summit, back to the main trail. Few deer, lots of hummingbirds. Fair amount of shade. Few people wearing masks when they encounter others, only maybe 15%. Trail is generally wide enough to step aside and keep some distance.

Perfect trail conditions. In the parking lot at 9, it was almost full. Saw deer about half way to the summit.

6/5/20 – Beautiful defined trail through a forest. The incline is pretty easy until you get to the Red Rock turnoff (labeled Red Wall Climbing Access) and then it becomes rocky and more moderate. The views from the summit are beautiful. Lots of hikers and bikers today, but all respectful. Daily entrance fee is $9/vehicle if you don’t have an annual State Park pass.

$9 entry fee, not $8. Had to wait in line for 15-20 minutes to pay, but well worth it. A little busy, but plenty of parking at Noon on Sunday.

Nice hike - the Red Rock turnoff isn’t marked on the map but there’s a clear sign on the trail. We went late Monday of MDW and there were a few people on the Staunton Ranch trail but no one on the path to the summit. Great views!

Pretty trail with nice views especially at the top. I had the summit to myself since most people stayed on the main trail. I was walking back around 730 pm and had probably 25 deer surrounding me so that was cool. It’s a state park so remember you have to pay to get in :)

Super fun hike that is close to the city. I’ve never explored this park and it’s nice and scenic.

Great hike! Staunton Ranch Trail was well marked and well maintained. The Red Rock (the trail marker technically says ‘Red Wall Climbing Access’) trail was awesome. A short trail that brings you up to some amazing views. You can see everything. Well worth it - it had a slight incline compared to the Staunton Ranch trail but still easy. We hit the trail at about 7:30 and only ran into a few people on SR. Red Rock trail had no one on it. By 9:30 on our way back down the trail was packed, but it was easy enough to pull off to the side to socially distance.

Beautiful hike! Staunton Ranch Trail was crowded but once we turned up toward Red cliff, we were on our own. At first we missed the turn up to red cliff and had to double back. There is a small sign... not sure how we missed it. The views from the top are amazing. You can see Pikes Peak on a clear day.

Easy along Staunton Ranch. More moderate once you get to the Red Rocks area. Views from the summit are incredible!! Pack a snack and hang out up there to enjoy the vistas.

Only few areas of ice, did most without spikes as melting. Very scenic. Took a few extras on this path.

Gorgeous hike! Definitely need YakTrax for sure- 100% necessary. Beautiful, clean, serene. I would rate it as easy because it’s literally almost flat the entire time until you get to the climb. Great for kids and families! Enjoy!
