Definitely wouldn’t consider this a difficult trail for off-roading. Great views and plenty of pull off spots for pictures. Beautiful and well groomed road and easy to access from GOG.

Lots to look at. Great for family.

This trail is a bit of a mixed bag, the west side is quite nice and it’s fun to explore the adjacent peaks like Mount Buckhorn. The forest is dense so there are few view opportunities but those few are beautiful.

The east side trail is mostly for mountain bikes, a severely eroded gash in the mountainside that’s hard to hike as there is little hold for your boots. But it sure looks like a lot of fun for biking and it offers a few great views of Colorado Springs.

Finally, I wasn’t aware that a large part of the trail is on the road so I took the Spring Creek trail which starts right at the tunnel down to the Columbine trail. This trail is quite beautiful and adds some intense elevation changes to the hike.

Easy trail with more than one path to take. Nice views and not too many people.

It was easy but could easily be labeled moderate, there was this one part though that was really dangerous, if u look on your left then you see the rock mountain part, but if u look to the right then down you just see a long cliff, be really careful because if you slip on that part then I wouldn’t give you much hope on living (that part is not recommended for dogs who pull and are crazy all the time) other than that part the rest was really scenic (the dangerous part was to), just be careful on that one part

One of my favs. Really good during the week, when not super busy.

Beautiful hike- friendly for our five year old kids with an awesome set of views at the top.
