Don't let the name fool you! The first half of this hike is very challenging as it starts with a quick incline. Once you reach the higher elevation, you have great views of downtown Denver as well as Red Rocks. Worth it, but watch out for bikers on your way down.

This trail on the AllTrails app is incorrectly rated easy! I would rate this trail as moderate to hard. Was not prepared for the incline or terrain when I arrived. Ended up going about .5 miles and turned back. Definitely a challenge to work toward but not as a beginner as I am.
