Lovely trail to do as the yucca are blooming, which is roughly now and will continue into mid June I would say. Great views of the front range, pikes peak of course, and Colorado Springs in general. You can also see iconic Garden of the Gods park from here and from a unique vantage point. It is a great walk for all skill levels and has a nice, wide, level path - however it can be windy at times since it is so exposed. Definitely wear sunscreen and a hat or sunglasses.
