Great quick trail to see some red rock structure. Several great photo opportunities.

Very easy trail, leading up to beautiful views. Ample parking at trail head.

I definitely would recommend this! But be warned there are snakes, I saw what I think were garden snakes slithering away from the path as I was walking. There are signs for rattlesnakes but I didn’t see or hear any. The paths aren’t marked and there a lot of bike trails, you just have to look ahead and gauge which way you want to go. The views are amazing once you climb the rocks! There are many spots up there that are flat for you to take some awesome pictures. If you are going to the rock I do not suggest bringing children, there are many loose rocks and spots can get a little sketchy for little feet.

Very fun trail not to terribly hard the incline does get a little steep and you have to kind of find your way to the top of kineo as the trail starts to disappear towards the top but beautiful view of Colorado Springs and the surrounding mountains.

A great cool down trail after long hikes. Shady trail that is very easy walking. Plenty of wildlife along the creek. This is a short trail perfect for walking with young children and pets. Take your time and enjoy nature and the creek. Some nice rock formations along the trail as well. Trail starts behind the visitors center and ends at a parking lot up the canyon. This parking lot is where Middle Columbine Trail begins.

Absolutely amazing trail

It was a gorgeous day there were some people but not too much I was able to get off on a trail and be the only one on it. Beautiful picturesque clouds and shadows all over, perfect day for photography.

It's a flat, wide path. Well maintained. Great for running, walking pets, and biking!

We hiked 5 miles today and it was so nice to have maintained trails. Beautiful rock formations made it all worth it

I’m new to hiking and this being my second hike I really enjoyed it. Throughout there was educational signs and benches which was nice. I will say however there are a few things to look out for! 1- when you get to this trail head (which can be kind of confusing to get to because the maps and signs aren’t super clear) go to the right side of the loop!!!! We took the left side and it was definitely more incline than if we would have taken the right side. I would say that taking the left is difficult while taking the right would have been moderate. 2. Beware of wasps/yellow jackets. We walked by a whole nest in a hallowed trunk and on a previous hike in the same park my friend was stung multiple times. 3. Has some really pretty views of the mountain however much of the scenery is the same.. this didn’t really bother me however due to the fact that the path kept things interesting with roots/rocks/inclines etc.

It was a nice trail with shady areas. I was unable to make it to the summit as there was some very steep rocks to get over towards the end and I made the decision to turn around. There are some nice look out points throughout the trail. Most of the trail is on gravel so that made it a bit difficult to get back down.

The beginning is tough. Steep switchbacks and you incline up the mountain. But once you peak, it’s a gradual decline. Full of beautiful views and lots of trees to provide shade.

Left side is more incline and harder, go right and you'll have more decline. Lots of rocks on the trail that are fun to run. Pretty good

Great hike close to home. Now that summer is over, it wasn't very busy at all. Very easy trail to run down after enjoying the views at the summit. Will be even more beautiful when the Autumn colors kick in!! This will be my go-to when I need a short outdoor workout!

Beautiful hike this morning. Lots of dogs, so no critters but plenty of birds.

One of the best places so far to hiking!

Loved having the sound of the rushing river the entire walk. The first .7 miles to the trail marker is fully exposed to sun, but once you get to 622 it’s a nice single track with full tree coverage. The last part of the hike is steeper than the rest, but worth the effort for the nice waterfall and place to hang out before heading back. We showed up at 11 and got lucky, three people were leaving at same time so we got a parking spot. It took us about 1.5 hours up and back and we loll i gagged, took pictures and hung at the end for a while. Easy hike and nice way to spend a couple hours.

Awesome hike. Beautiful summit views.

There are incredible views all the way up. Short and easy trail but a lot of loose rocks and some narrow passes. It was my first hike in Colorado. I highly recommend it.

That last mile! Wow super step and super small rock for a path, like every step u take u lose 1/2 the step in skidding backwards. Good trail though except for that last mile. First 3.5 has incline for sure but fairly normal terrain.

Nice views, easy trail. Downside is there’s a fee to get it but I think it’s worth it!
