Very fun with the fresh snow! Microspikes/yaktrax definitely not required at this point, but you might find they come in handy near the end. The seasonal spring at the end is frozen over currently but it's a fun short hike.

Starts out as a fairly easy trail, but toward the end of the trail there are a lot of off-shoots that can cause minor confusion. Plenty of shade, and lower elevation than other trails in the area.

I actually really like this easy hike because its versatile & you can go lots of different directions & very dog friendly. Some cool views & rock slides at the top.

Bottom Line: Like walking through Skyrim in real life.

Went with the somewhat-out-of-shape hubby and my 10-year old dog and both were able to handle this trail with ease. There was no water, so we went all the way to the end and I climbed the boulders and kept going until the way was completely blocked without climbing equipment. Very shady, but also extremely crowded on a Saturday, even early in the morning, and hardly anyone kept their dogs on leashes so at one point this giant Great Dane just ran up to my poor dog and there really wasn't much I would have been able to do if the owner hadn't been there to grab it real quick. If you take your dog, keep it on a leash and pick up after it!

Good solid hike uphill all the way along the wash. We cut off at Eagle’s Nest trailhead but from the road to Eagle’s Nest trailhead it was nice. To bad this time of year (Sept.) the water wasn’t flowing.

This was a nice, moderately easy, trail to take some visitors to for a little hike. They aren't used to the elevation and don't generally hike, so this was a good trail with beautiful scenery. Definitely recommend.

Nice peaceful relatively easy hike. Good intermittent shade for a break when needed. Decent views up and back. Our route measured 3.6 miles. I think we went a little further and a little higher.

Lovely hike

Pretty easy, even for my four-year-old. The path sometimes appears to come to an end, but keep going until you pass through the narrow switchbacks and the valley opens back up toward Fletcher Peak.

Don’t let the beginning of this trail fool you. The start may be slow but once you get further in the views and greenery totally explode. The last 1/2 mile was my favorite as you wind back and forth between mountain walls. I also felt this was a fantastic hike for kids as there were plenty of shady areas and places to rest. My wiener dog was also able to complete this hike unassisted.

This trail is really pretty, the views are awesome! There are confusing parts, and it seems to keep going well after this route ends. I will do this hike again.

Nice trail with lots of shade. During summer would recommend this for a morning hike.

Trail started off kinda boring, but once you get up to the boulders that you have to scramble up and get up the rope ladder, the trail was awesome. We hiked all the way to the stream up top. Great hike, very surprised. We ended up going over 1 mike further than where the trail map ended.

uphill climb. Pretty views. Great way to get out of the city. We did this hike with a 6 year old and she did well.

Easy walk in the woods until it hits the canyon and gets narrow. From there it's difficult to discern between the stream bed and the trail. It's been dry these past few years so the stream bed seems to have been the route most have taken and the trail itself is a bit disused. At the end of the trail you can continue up the stream until you get to some short vertical climbs. From there it's a scramble up some rocks to continue upstream. Payoff are some wonderful canyon views at the end and then all the way back.

Very nice and relaxing walk. Fairly well used and easy to manage. Great entry or training hike, just speed up your pace to add difficulty. The Eagle's Nest loop is off this trail and can be used to add some distance if you find this hike to be too short.

Great hike for a walk in the woods and a wonderful hike for the family with kids because the area is confined and there are no big drop offs to wander over.

Great trail. There are a bunch of options along the way to make the hike harder. Pays off at the end with a beautiful canyon walk.

Easy trail with a slight incline going up. Lots of shade, and pretty views. Trail isn’t necessarily marked, so make sure to pay attention or stay on path.

Fun little loop. Nice views of the valley. Lots of sun along the trail. Worth it for an easy stroll outside.
