Done this trail about 7 times. The beginning has more rocks and a natural feel to it. It has multiple paths you can take depending on your skill lvl. When you reach the base of the mountain, the rest of the trail is paved and is a high incline. But if you look to the right side, there's a path that's not well known and is similar to the beginning. Also at the base there is a Port-a-potty, but most of the time it isn't clean or out of toilet paper, and there's also a trash can. Bring lots of water and snacks. Seen Kids and pets do this hike. You'll also see Army and BP Explorers do this hike too. Recommend doing this hike in the early morning like 5 or 6 as the heat and the sun will catch up fast. Seen people do it at night, but don't really recommend it as the scorpions and snakes tend to be more active. It will also be pitch black, so I definitely recommend a flashlight.

Amazing trail! Tons of opportunities to go off trail and take a dip in the creek. (be careful not to slip!) Make sure to get there early, we arrived at 9am on a Tuesday and luckily grabbed one of the last spots.

We rated this a moderate/difficult nature walk and an easy hike. Walking sticks were a plus, especially across some of the slick rocks and Chaco/Keen sandals were great for the sand-trail-water-repeat of the trail. (I wish I’d work socks with the sandals to prevent chaffing as the sand-water and back and forth did irritate after a while.) Mostly shaded, cool water, incredible, lush greenery contrasting with the bright blue sky and red rocks made for a great hike. We got to lot at 845am on a Tuesday and there were still 15 spots. Easy in and out and marked trail; however, some confusing areas where the trail had offshoots to the water but the main trail was leading a different way.

Very easy hike but a beautiful view at the end! Loved the shaded trail up and multiple different branching hikes at the top of the trail to choose from

A nice trail combo that will get you moving and your heart rate up. Then, you’ll get some more low-key trail time, too. Cover some distance over fairly rocky terrain. I’ve been hitting this area of the preserve in the late afternoon over the past couple weeks and it’s been manageable, even though it’s been quite warm.

great!

fun hike! it is short but going up can be somewhat challenging which makes it ideal for a fast hike. I recommend going very early in the summer time. It is open, I visited today.

Went to watch the sunset. It was perfection. Easy and enjoyable even though it was hootttt out. We were visiting from out of town.

Went before sunset but still a bit crowded. Steep inclines are worth the view of the valley.

Arrived at the paved Devils Bridge parking lot at 6:30am and there was only one parking space left. Weather at that time was perfect. As we were walking to the Devils Bridge Trailhead there were several people walking back to the lot so they must have gotten up really early. Hike up was easy/moderate. The only challenging part was the last section which has 30-40 steep steps cut into the rocks. There were only 4 groups ahead of us so only waited 15-20 minutes to take our pic. People were nice and offered to take pic with our phones and we offered the same. Bring wipes and you can wipe your hands and phones afterwards to feel safer. On hike back, there were lots of groups coming up. To avoid crowds get there at 6:30 or earlier. Took 2.5 hours including the wait time for the pic. But we took our time and stopped to enjoy the views from other parts of the trail. Enjoy!

A previous review stated that the trail became hard to find after the 1 mile point. We (age 74 & 68) did it today. It appears there has been work done. We reached the top in 2 hours and hiked down the dirt road. Will do it again.

Standard AWD vehicle is probably not going to have the clearance to make it to the trail as there are several sections of very deep sand. With no cell reception at all and very limited vehicle traffic, trying to get up the road without true 4x4 capabilities is a big risk.

One of the most scenic hikes I’ve ever been on.

Lots of thick pine and aspen coverage. Also had a cool breeze most of the way. The trail has lots of roots crossing it, so pay attention to where you step to prevent tripping.

Gold Pan (444 & 442).is NOT an easy trail. Definitely moderate! Found a little pool of water with crawdads! Once you get to Lynx Lake, super easy! I would do it again!

So mannnyyy Aspens,alot of fun not very difficult though this trail turns into more than a few other if you're looking for more of a challenge. Keep in mind if you're camping over night the fee is $18 dollars! I'd suggest staying a night or two and explore the few trails that are here.

My favorite trail for exercise and peacefulness. Shaded, beautiful, and great views at the top.

very easy hike for animals, kids, everyone! hiked back on 6.13.20. weather was fairly warm.

Boring through the gravel road, but spectacular payoff up top!

Hiked with family on 5.09.20. descent into canyon can be a little tricky. the hike is beautiful along the river. even at times when you cannot see it. some slight route finding before getting to main water hole at the end. bring LOTS of water! go early because it gets packed this time of the year.

Hike starts out pretty steep and rocky in parts. It is mostly shaded going up but as you get higher, the less shade there is. Altitude can make it seem quite difficult if you’re not used to it. Especially when the sun is beating down on you. Would say it’s more difficult than moderate on the way up but the views at the top are so worth it. However, will say, once you get to the top, trail is somewhat hard to follow. Keep an eye on your map to make sure you don’t get lost. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen. Overall great hike!
