Beautiful scenery, quite crowded. Despite being rated as easy, this trail gains a lot of elevation in a short time. But the views of the Flatirons are worth it.

Great hike....ran into other trails which was nice...saw some deer...easy hike, peaceful

Nice walk with lots of wildlife. We saw 2 longhorns which was cool. Lots of bugs make sure to bring some bug spray. Seems like a great place to fish.

Our family of 5 wanted to do a quick Sunday afternoon hike and this one fit the bill. Our kiddos are 12, 9, and 6- they did great. It was a good Colorado summer day. The trail was a little busy. But not overly crowded. The kids enjoyed climbing on the red rocks.

Saw this "trail" on the way back home, since it's a short trail and get to see the waterfall, I decided to go. Parking space is limited, and also it's by a busy highway. It was such a nice "quick stop". It's worth it! 09/15/2019

Very easy and chill hike. Be prepared to get out of the way of bikers. Beautiful views.

Easy, but good views. Lots of loose rocks/ boulders on the trail. Otherwise great condition.

This trail was scenic and beautiful through and through! We brought the dog and she loved the shade and clearly marked trails. There is a nice rock area to explore with beautiful views along the trail! This was also easy for the dog to navigate and kids seemed like they loved it!

Had a great time for our first trip on this trail!! Took our kids and they loved it too. Pretty easy but amazing views of nature!

We had a large group of women - all ages. The trail was nice - varied, shade, some inclines, great views. We did see a bear pretty close to the trail. Scary.

Intermittent shade. Easy trail.

Trail was fine. Bathrooms were horrible, the worst we’ve ever encountered. Seems like the city of Boulder would do something about this!

Easy trail but pleasant. Can be buggy. Great for birdwatching.

It wasn’t as easy as I expected. It goes up and up and keeps going up. Not recommended for someone looking for a nice flat walk.

Nothing special, but I guess it would be good for beginner hikers.

Nice walk, not too hard but still a workout. shade and nice views. only issue keeping this from a 5 star is the stench of dog crap every few minutes or so.....people pick up your dog crap please!

Best hike if you want something relatively short and easy on elevation for one of the best views Boulder has to offer. Recorded 3.75 miles round trip and didn’t detour.

A genuinely moderate and scenic trail

Good little hike! Fun for doggos too!

Good trail on a dry day. Little bit of an incline at the beginning. Very pretty views on the trail and on the drive up. This is a fee area and you can get your Parking sticker at the trail head. Perfect first day hike for a flat-lander. There are other trail that branch off so you can extend the distance if you wish.
