Really enjoyed this hike! Lots of snow on the ground but I was fine with just hiking boots. There is also a good amount of parking. The views were great! I would recommend.

The ruins were neat to see. Trail was well marked and wide for the most part. Very easy hike. Hiked on a Sunday afternoon and the park was extremely crowded. Go during the week if possible.

Trail was clearly marked and a great time! It took us about 2 hours total to go up and back but we stopped several times to rest and take pictures.

Great trail that’s marked very well. A little hazy because of the recent fire, but still pretty views. Lots of parking at trail head and many benches throughout the trail.

We arrived around 8:00 and there was still plenty of parking. Trails are well maintained. Beautiful views despite smoke from the fires. The land marks were interesting. Foot traffic was light for most of the hike. As we returned to the parking lot around 11:00, it was heavier.

Beautiful, easy hike! Gets busy by 8AM, so go early. Parking is somewhat limited. My dog loved it. the trail is wide and there's lots of nearby trails if you get done early. Hit Mac Nation after.

HikingGreat!

Nice trail. Got there around 5:30am and there was only one vehicle in the parking lot. We ran into no one for the first hour and only saw a significant number of people near the trailhead on our way out around 8am. Plenty of shade and a good hike overall.

Awesome little hike. Hilly and partially shaded. It gets warm in the sun as you are hiking uphill in the sun back to the car.

Pretty easy trail for the most part. My nine year old was able to do this one no problem. Towards the end it is a little confusing because the signs say to right towards castle trail when really you should head left to go up the little summit. It isn’t really shaded so sunscreen and water is a must!

Great trail when you just want a quick getaway and a little challenge. I’d say this is more on the easy side than moderate. It took us 1.5 hrs and Apple Watch recorded 3.54 miles

Super easy trail! Good for family and kids. Lots of opportunities for rest. There’s also an outdoor bathroom which is convenient. Definitely recommend for a little escape from the city. Also plenty of parking early in the day.
