Beautiful......got caught in a hailstorm up here....very little cover......bad spot to be caught out in a thunderstorm!

Beautiful view at the summit! This was my first time to Meyers Ranch and I wouldn't want to do it without going to the top of Legault. It is the best view. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find the trail to the summit with the snow. But I just followed some footsteps. Had spikes on my boots and definitely needed them. Very wet and a bit slick as it has been warm all week and the snow was very melty. Boots and bottom of pants very wet but worth it. The extra hike to the summit made the whole hike worth it.

This was a fun trail. Steady incline on the first bit. You will come to a part that looks like a washed out road with dead trees in the middle and to the right of that is the continued Colorado trail. You will take the washed out one for the Raleigh Peak trail. There should a large arrow of rocks pointing you to go that way. It also has a steady incline after getting on that. It started to get really cloudy and windy so we turned around.

My favorite place to go walking and trail running.

A simple strait forward walk in the wood.

Trees and snow make it super pretty. Easy quick hike close to town.

Very muddy after the snow. But happy for the great weather!!!

easy and relaxed

Nice easy hike, some patches of snow and ice on the trail.

Great snow hike...
In the mountains, but not too deep and not too High. Perfect for a winter hike in the snow. Dog Loved It.!!

Agree that the hike is lacking views, but a nice trail and nice moderate hike.

Awesome hike! Have had a hard time finding easy trails that are great for kids/older parents AND interesting for me.

amazing trail!!!

This is a really nice hike- I just felt like it was lacking views... I would suggest continuing up Stauton Pass Overlook (I believe that is what it's called) for extra beautiful views. You just follow Mason Creek Trail until it ends and follow the signs further. Good hiking boots should be just fine- no need for yaktrax. But be very careful on the icy patches because they are parts where the creek ran over the path. It was warm enough today where if you stepped on the ice you would have ended up ankle deep in cold creek water. Lots of beautiful aspens- I can't imagine what this hike would look like in the fall!!

Easy winter walk.

Great time with a lot of beautiful trees to see. Plenty of switchbacks to break up the ascent. As the other reviewer Jesse said, take the extra mile to summit Legault.

To get to the summit, you'll need to look for the trail that is off the main trail when you reach the farthest corner of the top of the loop. You'll know you're there when you see the marker with arrows pointing in both directions. Just stay to the left of the No Trespassing signs and you'll be good to go.

The view from the top is amazing! Even with the little bit of climbing this is still a moderate trail, so enjoy.

Awesome hike. Recommend it to anyone, especially if you have people in town visiting. Great mountain bike trail as well.

Good hike. It was nice walking in the lodge pole pines which helped break the wind. Short but sweet

Beautiful sunrises this time of year, however the trail is definitely getting icy and I wouldn’t recommend an attempt without added traction. Definitely worth going the extra mile or so to summit Legault. The optional trail is a little spotty with plenty of fallen trees and unclear paths, but you can easily figure it out. Also some optional scrambling at the summit that is fun. Be sure to check the register and stamps.

Decent hiking! Left too late in the day. Started the hike at 3.30pm, got back to the car after doing every loop we could just before the last sunlight was gone. Beautiful with Aspen trees and creepy woods at parts. Felt paranoid coming back because we were hiking down the cold, dark side of the mtn and the light was eerie. Definitely worth it! Wouldn't hike at near daybreak again, though.

Great steady hike. Half uphill and the other half down. 3/4 of the hike is in a he forest.

I'd definitely do this trail again! It was so nice and cozy, and breathtaking! Best time to hike here is fall, because of color of the trees. Love this place!

Well maintained and very nice trail.

fun trail, easily connects for a near 10min loop hike with Old Mill and Staunton Ranch trails. Nice views not too much traffic.

I call this more of a nature walk than a hike. Pros are that it's easy to find and the trail is well marked. Beautiful aspens, lodgepole pines and rocks. Good for all skill levels. Cons are the road noise and the unfortunate placement of power lines through the park.
