Nice and dry , mostly shaded , I would say this is on the easier than moderate side , you don’t really feel the incline since it winds up and it’s great that there’s much less traffic than other connecting trails , def recommend.

An excellent local hike and a great bit less excruciating than the Mount Sanitas counterpart. At this point, all snow has dispersed from the trail itself. The only drawback is that it was quite busy (Sunday during social distancing).

Great hike. Beautiful day. Parking can be a problem if you arrive too late. The trail was icy so micro-spikes are recommended.

By far one of my favorite hikes, incredible views all along the trail. spikes are recommended.

Beautiful hike! Definitely suggest spikes- I did not have any and slid quite a bit.

I love this trail every time. It is just so winding, so serene and so beautiful! It was quiet today, which was great. I will repeat this trail again and again!

Nice trail! Still some snowy/icy/muddy spots but we got by in hiking shoes - no traction needed. Great for social distancing along the Lions Lair trail, Mount Sanitas summit was significantly busier!

I only made it up on my own this time. I slipped on the rocks and soft snow on the way down and injured my knee. I am so very grateful that the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group was able to hike up and carry me down on a stretcher. X-rays later showed a medial collateral knee ligament strain and I am hoping that is the worst of it. My point is, wear your damn spikes!! I had them in at the beginning of this hike but took them off because I was hiking in 2’ of fresh, soft powder. I foolishly didn’t think to put them back on as we started to descend.

gorgeous trail, wear spikes!

Smooth trail in hiking boots , no ice or snow on main trail... minor mud in parts, but basically perfect as of today
