Walked with our dog here in June. Don’t expect any crazy views. The trail is boxed in by suburban neighborhoods and roadways. The trail itself is easy to find and well marked. There are cacti on the edges of the trail so be careful if you are wearing open-toe shoes. Overall, it’s a nice walk for a neighborhood park.

One of the better trails in the Springs area for running and biking. Trailhead is very easy to find and the there are plenty of trail forks that allow you to create lots of different routes through the park. No exceptional views, but still nice to look at. Gravel is a bit fine grain and deep in places which might be a problem if you have thin tires on your bike.

Moderate hike. The views are all inside the canyon area, there isn't a place that had a panoramic view. Decent amount of people on the trail, took maybe 3.5-4 hours from lower mid section to top parking and back.

Fascinating huge rock formations, but overall less to it than we were anticipating. Family friendly with a few route options, some shorter and some longer. Mostly paved. We recommend the full 4-mile loop which provides good views from a distance and up close. It was very crowded and very warm on June 30.

Parking lot almost full by 8AM on a Friday. Beautiful, shaded trail with a cool breeze off the stream. Trail became more crowded on our way down, by 9AM.

Good trail overall. The trip to park is a dirt road for over 5 miles. Not the best. Turn off before the directions take you. The trail is moderate with descent views and secluded. Overall there are better trails but it was still nice.

I would agree. More easy than moderate

Great trail, mostly shaded. The first little bit is in the sun, but there are trees along the side for pups to rest in the shade. Lots of creek access points for splashing and cooling off. You have to turn off the main trail to get to the bridges, I shared a picture collage of the signage to look for . The 1st of the 7 bridges is not labeled, the other 6 are all numbered.

Overall an amazing trail. There is beautiful scenery the entire time and it was only busy in some spots. I would recommend downloading the map, it’s really easy to get lost at some turns! Even on the way back. I’m a beginner hiker and the last mile up to the top of this trail was really difficult for me. Very steep and rocky in some areas. I would do it again!

Great trail - easy for kids too. Very hot with little shade - so bring water!

The reviews are absolutely spot on but somehow I still underestimated it lol I wore a 20lb pack and did this in the middle of the afternoon on a 96 degree day SOME people would tell you NOT to do that and I am now one of those people The peak has a view that is 100% worth it just be prepared to do a lot of side stepping coming down. Today is 7/10/2020 and I saw a ton of butterflies all over the trail and especially at the summit. :)

Hiked on 07/09/20. Overall, this is a pretty moderate hike with one hard part in the middle, with some unfortunate extra distance at the end due to a trail closure. I started at about 7:20am with 4 liters of water and other gear in my pack. The first part of the trail is somewhat difficult to follow due to a lot of intersecting trails, so make sure you bring a map or have the AllTrails map on your phone. The part of the hike in Red Rock Canyon Open Space is minimally shaded, so make sure you bring sunscreen if needed. Once you get to the fork in the trail a little after 3 miles, make sure you take the left path, not the right one. The right one is for when you are returning after the section 16 loop. While on the Section 16 loop, you'll encounter the reason that the hike is rated hard. Near the middle of the hike, you gain about 1,000 feet of elevation in a mile over rocky terrain. I've definitely done worse, but it still worked up a good sweat. Once you get on top, it's smooth sailing for a long time. The next 3.6 miles are all downhill over pretty smooth terrain. The landscape offers a lot of nice views and is a pleasant walk. You'll turn onto Gold Camp Road and start heading back towards Red Rock Canyon, and you'll have to walk on the paved road for a short time. After that, it's generally rolling hills, nothing too crazy. However, once you get near where the trail says you should intersect with the trail you started out on, that connecting trail is closed for re-vegetation and it is illegal to hike on it. That requires you to take a variety of trails (Red Rock Canyon Overlook Trail, Intemann Trail, Section 16 Connector, Mesa Trail, Roundup Trail, etc) to get back to the Lion Trail and onto the path marked by AllTrails. That adds about 2.25 miles to your hike. I finished at about 12:15pm, having gone through 3.5 liters of water (it was about 92 degrees out when I finished). The trail has a lot of great scenery and is pretty moderate other than the hill, my only complaints are that the AllTrails map route is not quite possible (unless you want to hike the connecting trail illegally), adding extra distance that I hadn't planned on.

Trail is well defined and partly shady. The last mile back to the parking lot is on the road but next to the creek so that’s nice.

Wanted to do Mt. Garfield but the main road to trailhead was closed. Did columbine for the 2nd time. easy trail with some small steep areas. I actually think it was easier covered in ice as the loose rocks kept me slipping. Overall it's an easy trail to walk or jog.
