Overall great hike. Took a little over 2 hours. Definitely more moderate to high level difficulty in some places. Beautiful views of Denver as you get to the top. Only negative, there was a lot of bike traffic.

Took our kids from the parking lot onto the a longhorn trail then Maverick then back by way of Sawmill. It was about a 2.5+/- mile trip with 6 kids ages 4-10yrs. It was a great hike, not too difficult for anyone. A few steep parts but no more than 10yards in distance so it wasn't "constant climbing". Tons of flowers, conifers, and beautiful views of both the valley below and surrounding mountains. Great trip!

Thousand foot elevation gain or more in the first 2 miles. Rocky narrow trails some tricky areas for horses in steep terrain. Many mountain bikes beautiful views, varied ecological systems to go through. I am rating the whole White Ranch trail system. Many trails bicycles are polite. Shoes a must. Upper parking lot avoids steep hot dry ROCKY acent .
