Really great little hike! It's short with 450 ft of incline, so you do some nice uphill walking. The majority of the trail is switch backs, but there are shortcuts if you want to walk straight up. There's a short little rock scramble as you make it to the top. There's lots of cacti about, so keep eyes open if you have a pup with you. The view from the top is great. You look right down on the Coors Brewery and then you can see Denver in the distance. We went at 7:30 am and were in shade the whole time. It took us 30 minutes up and 15 minutes down.

Really cool views! There is not much shade so if you bring a dog, be wary of how hot the ground is. Such a cool area around this hike as well

My husband and I completed this hike on June 25.

It was a hot day, and the trail is completely exposed, so we definitely worked up a sweat, even though it was short. It was moderately steep most of the way, with at least 20 steps at the end.

We loved the views from the top. We saw the entire city of Golden, the Coors factory, and much of the Denver metro area. The only bummer was that there were colonies of flying ants at the top, and we were swarmed, so we couldn't stand still long enough to take a decent picture.

Overall great hike. A must-do if you're in the area!

I liked the shortcuts between the switchbacks. It is an ok hike for a family with children.
There is no shade so i would choose an overcasted or cool day. The view is of the town and felt like an urban hike. I could tell that if there was rain, the trail would be a sloppy mess. I also prefer trails with a stream or some water. Next time im going another 20 minutes or so west on I70 to bigger adventures.

Fun quick trail with a great view of the Coors brewery. A little bit of mud but nothing crazy. A good choice for a nice hike close to Denver.
