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.
