We loved this trail. The views are breathtaking. It wasn’t busy at all for a sunny Sunday afternoon. We brought our pups and hiked the canyon rim trail.

Beautiful views. Easy rather than moderate.

Beautiful area and not very busy on a Saturday afternoon.

Some of the trail had tree cover, sunscreen optional.

If you look at the recordings, you will noticed there are multiple tracks for this area. My recording is for the "Overlook Loop", which was amazing.

AllTrails does not have a way to communicate with other outdoor enthusiast, I can be reached on Facebook Messenger if you have any questions about this trail.

Took the trail to left. The hike was short, easy and no incline! The view was beautiful and very peaceful and I would recommend this hike to all skill levels.

Note: trail is labeled "Canyon Rim", and starts across from rest area. L is out and back, R is loop. Go right if you can't do both. Easy, fun and breathtaking trail.

Took off on the trail to the R instead of the L, so ended up on the loop, but great chance to see the Royal Gorge Bridge, river & train. Look forward to the other one next time!

Very nice hike, with pretty decent views of Canon City and the Royal Gorge! Definitely try to make it during the cactus bloom as there are a ton of cacti throughout the trail!

Cheers!
