The Audra Culver Trail was lovely. I would highly recommend taking it on your way up to Horsetooth mountain. As for South Ridge Trail, it’s okay. The wild flowers are in bloom right now (May 11) it’s wonderful!

We enjoyed this hike, it's a bit exposed to begin, but you end up with about half the trail in the shade. We did a slightly different route heading up Horsetooth Rock Trail (instead of South Ridge) and coming down Audra Culver Trail. The top of Horsetooth is very windy so hold on to your hat and anything that might get blown off. You get a nice view of the Rocky Mountains... the day we were up we could only see Long's Peak as there was some smoke in the air from fires, but supposed you can normally see Pike's Peak as well on a clear day. The wind was pretty strong on the Audra Culver trail, it kept us nice and cool.

I ended up taking this up to connect to horsetooth then up to the rock (the views are worth it!). If you're looking for any shade going up, this is not the route. You also share with mtn bikers (everyone was super awesome on sharing the trail). I recommend especially with a dog in the warmer weather to take horsetooth all the way from the trailhead.

Fun hike. We decided it we would not call it easy though.
