Ok yes this is really more "sightseeing" than "hiking". But it is one of my new favorite spots in Colorado! It's absolutely beautiful and interesting. You can't take a bad photo here.

It's more of a playground than a hike...I'll go back when there's ice in the ice caves!

Very heavily trafficked right off the road, lots of
Kids, would be a very nice place to take a family and picnic but don't expect much past that.
