Hot open hike able to move fast. Prefer something more scenic.

Great hike! Like other reviews said it's more moderate than easy. It's mostly exposed in the sun with a few occasional shady spots.

Surprisingly scenic trail close to Denver. Busy, but not crowded on a Thursday evening. Would avoid on the weekend as I'm sure it is crazy congested. Lovely views of the city, Red Rocks, and surrounding areas. Nice variety of vegetation as well. Recommend connecting with Castle Trail to complete a loop rather than going out and back. Agree with others that this leans moderate for a trail listed as easy, especially if you do the loop.

Definitely not "easy" and I'm from Colorado. I'm also active 7 days a week! Great for a good glute workout. I arrived at 7:30 am on a Saturday and took the last spot in the parking lot. I'd do it again but go earlier to avoid having to stop for bikers every other step or hear others chatting on the trails.
