Nice loop close to town. Beautiful rocks and views. Not a lot of tree cover. We started our hike at 8:30 am and it got pretty hot an hour into the hike. Great workout as most of the trail is scattered with rocks as obstacles.

This is a great one to start on for those getting into hiking! The first 20 minutes for me was the toughest, but then it was smooth sailing!

A nice trail with nice, elevated views of the area along with some nice views of Red Rocks. The Moderate difficulty is appropriate with much of the trail pretty flat. There isn't much shade, so I wouldn't recommend doing it in hot weather. The parking area for where the trail starts is very limited, so an alternative would be doing the loop starting from the Matthew/Winters parking area up to the north.

Great views with huge red rocks along the way. Be careful when transitioning between Morrison Slide and Red Rock paths because the signage can be confusing.
