Nice easy hike, 6 yr old had no trouble. Fun (free!) view of 7 falls near the top of the trail.

It was really nice! A bit of snow the closer I got to the falls. Beautiful and very peaceful.

Great hike! Check out our video recap here to get a sneak peak. https://youtu.be/OCvzVb-adEE
It was a little easy at first, but boy the second half was strenuous. Totally rewarding at the end! :)

Very nice shady trail along a stream. Not a loop trail, so it is all uphill first and then back down. Well used, but not crowded. Enough traffic to make me comfortable as a solo hiker. From the trailhead parking lot, walk down the wide flat path (also leads to St. Mary's Falls Trail. About 3/4 mile down there is a trail marker for trail 622. Once you are on it each bridge is numbered and it impossible to get lost.

great trail but it's pretty narrow and the bikers can be a bit dangerous when they come flying up behind you.

We loved this little Wilderness in the middle of town. We didn't see litter or trash on the trails near parking area 16 at all.

Simple paved trail that's pretty good for walking or biking. No natural trails that I could see.

A short, challenging, and very scenic trail. The view of Colorado Springs and Seven Falls are amazing!!
