Beautiful trail and nice weather!
Good to get the legs going. Humphrey’s Peak tomorrow!

Fairly easy trail, with beautiful views.

Beautiful forested high mountain trail (above 9000’). Windflowers, some of the tallest and thickest aspens you might ever see (and I’ve hiked all over CO, too). Unfortunately we had to turn around due to increasing lighting, but will definitely come back!

Such an underated trail and gives incredible views the whole way up!

Very interesting that people could live in that environment. Absolutely would take this walk again.

It was a good hike, not too strenuous up the mountain. Missed the caves though. There should be a sign showing the trail to the caves.

hiking moderate and at the top great view of Mount Humphreys

I read that several people missed the caves. They are not marked. There is a fork in the trail as you near the peak where you can look over the saddle and see houses on the back side. The fork to the left takes you on the main trail on the loop to the highest point. The trail to the right takes you on a short run along the lower ridge toward the West. That is where the caves are. It is a dead end trail. It is a nice hike. The higher altitude makes it harder to get your wind. It’s a good workout.

Very interesting. Someday I’ll make it to the end when I decide to bring 20 flashlights .

Fun activity for the family. Dirt road leading to the cave but a regular sedan can easily drive on it. Bring a jacket. Definitely bring headlights so your hands are free. Bring hiking shoes as you are walking on rocks and many are sharp. I was wearing running shoes and boy I was sorry I didn’t bring my hiking pair. Watch your head in areas where rock is low. You will be busy watching your step and can really hurt your head. If you want to look around just stop first. In some areas you have to really bend over to go through but the overall hike is not hard for any age. We really enjoyed it.

Good workout ! Didn’t like the cinder gravel though

Remember head lamp (you need your hands at times to navigate the rocks) and a warm long sleeve or sweat shirt. Gloves would be nice too

I actually really liked this trail even though we somehow missed the caves. I felt like the hikes were easy enough to follow but I always use the AllTrails App when I go out. We met a few friendly people along the way but it wasn’t too busy. The climb to the summit was a small challenge but you can feel it in your legs. I also saw a snake slithering across the path although it didn’t look like a rattler. It was a nice break from the hot Phoenix heat.

Nice recovery hike!

Exceptional landscape. Such a beautiful and educational site. This isn't a long trail but well worth it.

Nice loop, we did it in just about 2 hours. A little bit of a climb but not much. This trail is better for biking than hiking. At some points the trail is only wide enough for one person, and we had to get off the trail about 10 times for bikers.

This trail is closed as of 6/28/18 due to fire risks

Terrible markings. We drove very far to see the caves and missed them entirely. I read all the reviews and did lots of research, yet we still went to the top instead of the caves somehow. Also harder than moderate.

More of a nature walk than a hike, was still an enjoyable experience. We did have 3 kids with us (11, 9, 2) and they did great.

nice long walk...good for all ages

Beautiful setting and the trails were well maintained. Plenty of filtered shade on a warm day!

Trail closes at five pm. So that was sad.

Nice walk. Lots of wildlife. Good info from the rangers. Take it slow coming back up esp. if it’s hot out.

Great hike. Friendly people on trail. Spotted a 5 + ft bull snake on trail.
