Nice flat hike. Hiked it as part of an 8.5 mile loop of sorts

Beautiful quick loop with views of the rocks from afar and away from the crowds. Peaceful walk with little incline or shade—easy for a jog or dog walk. You could hear rattlesnakes in the distance but nothing on the trail. Unchallenging hike if you want to get a solid workout in, but a nice stroll if you are there for a quick visit.

Great option to see the rocks away from the crowds, trail was not congested at all! Not much shade though, bring plenty of water and sunscreen. Great views!!

Easy and well maintained. A nice option if you want to experience Garden of the Gods and get away from all the congestion of the park. I thought it had nice views. Good for families and not strenuous Deer, rabbits, and lots of woodpeckers out in the field.

I like this little loop. It's nice, it's cute. Great different views of the park and Pikes Peak.

I visited this trail in March 2015 as well as other nearby ones. This trail and the others nearby are all beautifully scenic and are an easy walk. If you’re looking for a hike with incredible views that’s not too difficult, this is perfect for you!

A nice walk getting a different perspective on the GoG. At the end of the walk the wind was howling on the Niobrara. As a matter of fact it was a hold onto your hat wind. Now I am in the car the wind is rocking the car. Totally enjoyable walk.

Very little traffic compared to the main park, offers beautiful views year round. The steps going back up the trail pose a little difficulty for some, but if the trail is taken completely looped around, it's not really an issue. Highly recommend!

Nice that it was less traffic than the main Garden of the Gods path - we still got some beautiful views, and some shade on the path. The app was very handy - we could easily take the smaller trails without getting lost.

I having hiked, ran and mountain biked this trail system a few times during my time in Colorado. Lots of fun with trails for all skill levels. Trail is a little narrow in some parts so I wouldn’t descend from up high on a mountain bike if you aren’t moderately experienced.

Easy, mellow trail that’s great for families with small children and dogs. Not as heavily trafficked as the rest of the nearby trails in Garden of the Gods. Gorgeous views for photographers!

I love that the trail is paved. When friends and family visit who aren't great at hiking, this is a great trail to do. it's paved so stroller and wheelchair accessible too.

Easy trails, mix of hardball and well maintained groomed trails, can be kind of busy pending on the day, but its a fun place to walk around or job and relax

The garden of the gods scenery is awesome. Definitely, one of those bucket list experience places. The trails are too domesticated for my taste, mostly consisting of well maintained asphalt. Which will be great for joggers, cyclists, handicap or casual strolls. I like my experiences in nature to feel a little more natural. It's still a great place to go, just don't think of it as a hike as you would many other trails.

Nice trail but can be busy and hot depending on what time of day you hike.
