Nice easy set of trails up to some amazing red rock formations sooo close to downtown but hidden nestled among the foothills. Go just past the sanitas trailhead to find parking and some great trails going on either side and through/over the awesome red rocks. Note... this is not red rocks like the famous amphitheater!

Cool rock formations to scramble up on!! You can see these rock formations from Chautauqua Park, just jutting out of the ground. I did it after the Anemone trail which is just a short distance from the trailhead.

by Kentucky standards this was not easy. i was out here for a wedding working in hour hikes when i could. This had too many people and to close to town. but i did not rate it lower because it is in the rockies and you got t see some red rock.

Beautiful trail, some damage from recent valley fire. The on-leash designation is incorrect, this trail is part of the voice and sight control off-leash program per Boulder County: https://bouldercolorado.gov/osmp/dog-regulations-by-area

Great trail with neat views from the top. The max elevation is around 5800. Went the day after the October snowstorm so it was pretty slick, but had a great time.
