We hiked this trail on March 7. It was a lot of fun and we’ll definitely be back once it’s open again. The dogs had a good time! Lots of other hikers and other dogs, too. Not a lot of shade. Crowded on a Saturday (duh). Limited parking available. Beautiful views.

Nice, easy loop. Beautiful views of red rocks. Some stairs. Did it in about 45 minutes with my pup at a very leisurely pace.

Easy trail without shade. Perfect for spring day. Great first solo hike!

Beautiful quick trail

The parking lot and trailhead were closed today when we went. Both were blocked off by fencing and yellow tape, as were several other trailheads in the area.

This is a gravel path that is very populated, and for good reason. It's a short 1.5 mile loop through a valley and around some pretty impressive rock formations. worth the visit.

I am giving this hike a 3 from a personal out look. Only because I have been here so many times and I like to explore new areas. Pretty straight forward hike, easy, flat surfaces with some incline. However, I did take my maternity pictures here because of the good ol’ classic red rock formations. So please if you haven’t done this hike it’s more than worth it. It’s iconic. Great for the family. Only drawback is over populated.

Quick, low impact loop. Standard Red Rocks views. Roughly forty five minute time commitment, probably a bit less if your knees work better than mine.

Nice quick dry trail. Lots of people on a warm 64 degree Saturday. It’s pretty toasty even with it not being too hot since there’s no shade. Glad I wore shorts and brought water!

A good, easy hike for those who haven’t been to Red Rocks, but be prepared to have lots of people around you if you go on a weekend.
