I really didn’t like the tiny pea gravel on the trail. But the views were so awesome that this trail still maintains a 5 Star rating. The third tunnel was right after the 1/4 mile mark. By the one mile mark you have pretty much seen everything. But I didn’t get tired of the amazing views for the last mile. I showed this trail at exactly 4.0 miles there and back.

Beautiful trail!! It is perfect for family and has a great view of the ridges. The nature that surrounds you is stunning!! A great number of cacti and a couple lizard friends keeping you company as you make it to the end. Unfortunately my recording didn’t record until we turned around at the end of the View trail.

This trail offered great views of the gorge throughout! There are a few points that you have to pay attention to the map due to a change in the trail (looks like a dirt road was built where the trail used to be). Overall easy to follow and a beautiful trail!

Beautiful, flat trail. Perfect for families with strollers or younger kids. Great views of the Arkansas River all along the river. It was shorter than 2 miles so it was a perfect walk to the end and run back to the start. Highly recommended.

I rated it a 4 only because I didn't see a trailhead anywhere and I like signs. Moths swarmed around me today around the trees, but they are harmless and probably passing through. I parked at the campground area on the road. There's no signage for the peak trail until you get past the tower. You have to duck under a gate shortly after beginning the hike. Follow the road (389B) to the tower, then take a single track trail up to the peak. The last 0.15 mile or so is a very steep scramble. You'll find a rockpile at the top, and a green box with paper and a pen to register your hike. You might bring more paper because it's almost completely used. It's a very beautiful view from there!

Beautiful views, as everyone as said. Especially if you are familiar with Fremont County and Cañon City, it's nice to sort of "see it all" from Fremont Peak. The extra summit trail with the 30º incline is no the "easy" part, but it's not hard either. I don't use walking sticks. It's maybe only a football field of that length. When I went it was dry and the rocks were crumbly and not to be trusted. I bit it on the way down once, but other than a few scratches I was fine. I wouldn't take small children up to the peak the last 100 yards (under 10 years old) but the rest of the trail is fine and has great views. See my photo of the last 100 yards or so to get an idea of what to expect. Lots of nice nature views. Would love to again sometime. With COVID-19, the campground trailhead was empty, and I was the only one on the trail, which was extra nice. From a single vantage point, you can see the Arkansas River, the Royal Gorge Bridge, and few hundred yards away, look down on Cañon City. Pretty cool. Makes you realize how close it all is as the crow flies. I think one could potentially even figure a way down on the East Side and hoof it back to Cañon City toward the entrance to Skyline Drive and up and over, but it's not on any maps as to how to do so, but it seemed possible. Really awesome. Thanks to all the AllTrails folks who posted about it to boost my confidence to give it a whirl. Was a very helpful, meditative walk to reflect on my life, too!

Great work out. In and out trail. No real path at the top to the peak, had to make our own. Beautiful views!

We went on 5/16/20 and trail not too busy but limited parking in the lot. We started the trail across from the parking lot as it is called “Canyon Rim Trail”. The trail is about 5 miles and fairly easy. Great views across the gorge. We ended up getting confused at the east side of the loop as it looked from the AllTrails map we were going off the path. So we took down a road that ended up meeting back with the trail.

Great trail!! It’s actually 4 miles to the end and back. No shade- so plan accordingly. Was great for the kids- wife and flat. Beautiful views the whole time! Tunnels x3 in the first mile, then ongoing views of the river and mountains.

Great trail loved the veiws.

The trail was a little harder than I expected but so worth the effort! View was everything.

Nice easy trail but the only shade is in the first few tunnels at the beginning of the trail. Plenty of trash cans and places to sit along the way though! Very clean and well taken care of.

Nice steep hike with great views at the end. It was a warm day about 75 degrees; I took 3 liters of water and wished I had 4.

Gorgeous views!

For this area, the trail was pretty boring. No shade and loose rocks.

Nice easy walk and the tunnels are really cool there is three of them earlier on in the walk then just a path that’s quite scenic. Would recommend definitely.

Took my husband and our dogs today. It was a perfect day for a walk. He had never been before and loved it. Beautiful scenery and lots of places to rest.

Fun trail! It had just snowed before we went so the trail was pretty snowy/muddy still. Definitely bring a jacket as you’re hiking in some heavily wooded forest most of the time. It kind of felt like a long hike (pretty good elevation gain) but keep going... once you get out of the trees there are some incredible views! As you get closer to the top it opens up to what I would imagine is an amazing meadow in the summer and it becomes more of an ATV trail.

It is a fun hike. Since I treated it as a bit of a challenge, I made it all the way to the top of the peak and back in 3 hours and 49 minutes. The views were great.

Absolutely gorgeous!! The views of the gorge were incredible. I think we saw some mountain lion scat, super neat.
