Really good, challenging hike with a kid on my back. It was well traveled today. Nearly everyone was not wearing a mask but respectful of keeping social distance whenever possible. We parked at the Nature Center and made it about 75 minutes in before turning around. Will be back!

Trail has beautiful views at the top. However, difficult climb with lots of loose gravel. The descent was fun but still had to be cautious not to lose control. Would return only to hike, not bike.

Great family trail. A nice shaded trail where I didn’t have to apply sunscreen.

Simple trail from base of Cheyenne to gold camp road. Good excersice

I did this counterclockwise and my knees are grateful. The steep incline was done in the first couple miles, after that it was a very gradual decline. Unfortunately for me, that made it a little boring, so next time I’ll prepare for trail running the downslope. All and all- great hike and not too crowded.

I love this trail! Beautiful views and a nice trail. I agree with a previous comment to go counterclockwise. Get the incline over with and enjoy the rest!

Great hike! Go counterclockwise to get the steep part over with first. Nice mix of trees and views!

What an amazing hike. The Seven Bridges trail is a little difficult because of the elevation gain, but the trail is easy to follow as long as you don't miss the trailhead off of Gold Camp. The top of the trail is tricky, and we found it difficult to see where to go after the seventh bridge. Climbing from there to the summit of Kineo was very difficult for us, but the rest of the hike was moderate. There was some snow at the top of seven Bridges and to the top of Kineo, but the rest was clear. Slightly muddy, but nothing unmanageable. All of the bikers and dirt bikers we shared the trail with were incredibly polite.

Liked this trail because it wasn’t near as traveled as other hikes in the Springs. Nice payoff at the top. We parked at the first lot to the left, not where this app takes you to the next lot on the right. The trail starts from the lot we parked at, going up towards the left, not the one that goes down to the right. Enjoy!

Nice trail and very well kept. Not very difficult, but a little bit of elevation change. Not far from the road the majority of the hike, so you aren’t very secluded but still fun.

Beautiful trail that’s easy but 4 miles long so it’s enjoyable the whole way.

What a gem and frankly a big surprise! Views of the city, mountains, Castle Rock, and basically a different perspective from the trails up in the mountains. Beautiful little loop trail that gives you great views throughout as you hike through relatively rocky terrain. Mileage is about 4+ with some ups and downs but minimal elevation change. I saw a few bikers but the terrain is definitely better suited to hikers. Try it in both directions!

Ok so it can definitely get a bit crowded, especially on the paved portions and on holidays (or now every day). This is still one of my favorite hikes in the world just based on the sheer beauty of this park. Despite visiting dozens of times I never grow tired of visiting. Normally once you get out of the central area and onto Scotsman or Siamese Twins you lose most of the traffic and can stop and reflect a bit.

The open space was nice. Parking was decent, but I'd say the earlier the better to arrive. Maps are on-site of various trails to venture. Bikers and hikers mainly. Will be going back again!

Very scenic and enjoyable trail with light to moderate elevation change. Views basically non-stop as you wind your way along the side of the mtn towards the falls and the 7 Bridges trailhead. Starting from Middle Columbine parking lot it’s almost exactly 6.5 miles RT with 1300 ft ascent. The trail is popular with bikers so don’t be surprised to see a few. S curves have a lot of loose gravel so be sure to have decent shoes especially in the last little downhill before you return.

Beauty views. The incline for the first third is a bit tough, but after that it is mostly flat and shaded. There are mountain bikers and it looks like horses frequent this trail, and the trail overall is pretty narrow— just something to consider on busier days.

Great secluded trail! Old Stage road is very bumpy and dusty but great views and doable in all cars. Easier with suvs and trucks but we saw plenty of sedans making the drive. Hiking trail is very easy to follow and goes along a ridge line so you get great views the entire way. Quite a bit of elevation going out and then downhill just about the whole way back. Saw lots of people and families on a Saturday morning.

Good climb up on the more difficult side. We did it packing in a 15 month old so it was interesting. Great views and worthwhile hike
