One of my favorite nearby hikes! Easy to get to and not very crowded. Watch for snakes if you bring your dog (and keep them on leash, obviously).

Nice long walk if you enjoy walking. Trail is very wide and nice views to the city. Bring a lot of water during summer.

The first incline is strenuous but the rest is not very difficult. Good views but I got tired of stopping to let bikes pass every couple minutes. Definitely won't be back.

The trail is decent, but honestly probably won't hike again unless I do the full North loop. Great proximity to Denver, so it was very busy, and the parking lot fills up quickly. I'd say go try it out for yourself on a sunny day if you're short on time. Sidenote, most of the mountain bikers were polite, but this trail does have a lot of bicycles and a few bad apples who will roll up on your six pretty quick without warning.

Great trail. I suggest taking the south trail head 1st to this loop (versus the north). Don't let the up portion scare you, it's short and after that... the trail is nothing but gravy!

ENJOY!

It’s close to denver and has great views. A nice trial
To hike when you just need to get outside in the afternoon.

Difficult straight-up hike at the beginning of the trail but lovely vistas at the top and sections of flat trail for recovery. We went early on a Sunday and the parking lot was full when we finished. Lots of mountain bikers but everyone was considerate.

Great hike! Has a good mix of elevations with beautiful views of Denver and the mountains. There are directional signs to keep you on the right path. Saw a coyote not far from the trail. A couple other times I’ve seen deer.
