I have to say this trail a total surprise! So beautiful and cozy, quiet and perfect place for meditation!! This was not a challenged trail but great with kids, dogs and nice slow walk or trail running. I'd come back here to do another trail next time!

The trail is very well maintained and an easy hike. Nice views and some beautiful rock formations. The only things I didn’t like about it are that the “lake” is really just a small man-made pond, and for most of the trail you can see the road and hear traffic...I prefer a little more secluded feeling. It was fairly busy on a Friday mid-morning also.

Nicely maintained Trail and was very mellow. Easy and mostly flat. Would be very hot in the summer with no shade coverage.

A mostly gravel trail, with some ice, and places with space to walk two side by side. All ages were out on the trail. Two parking lots-the northern one is off road, larger and has access to rest rooms.

Loved this hike! Living in Littleton it’s only a 10 minute drive and the variety of natural scenery and rock formations are amazing. Like a mini mini garden of the gods close to home

Easy access and easy walking on packed gravel/sand trails. Connect to another trail system over a small ridge or cross the road over to an open meadow. I walked 4.5 miles casually checking out the trails.

Too crowed but nice easy trail

Easy trail with really nice views of the red rocks. Very minimal shade so bring water and use caution when bringing pets when the temp is high

Very busy trail, but would be good for a run. Very well manicured, and not much to explore - signs everywhere to only stay on trails.

Great hike, lack of shade makes this perfect for a sunny winter day.

Beautiful! Easy walk for any age...took my pup who enjoyed it as well! No cover makes for a warm day, bring plenty of water!

Nice for a short walk or run. Really easy trail. If you use your imagination the rocks change shapes the farther you go, Pretty cool. The Rocks are easy to climb around on. If you only have about an hour it's a great choice.

Great! I am not one to hike and decided I want my family to start going every weekend. This was our first hike/walk. It was a nice trail easy but I am pretty sure I will be sore tomorrow. I would recommend this trail for beginners, dog walkers, and anyone that wants to feel like they are taking a walk in a beautiful area.
