Super hard for the first part of less than a quarter of a mile as it is very steep, but after that it's an easy and beautiful hike. Well worth the first 5 minutes of suffering. The tail takes you through such varied terrain, you start out in a much forest with the most beautiful stream you have ever seen, then on to grassland and wildflowers, walking past impressive rock formations, and finally at the top is just amazing view after amazing view. The trees up there are very cool too as the wind has shaped them in such interesting ways.

Hidden gem - beautiful trail along the creek with fantastic views at the end. Loved the variety of the trail.

Great trail along the creek with sweeping views at the end. Beautiful rock formations. There was no camping when we were there - check to make sure the campground is open or sleep in your car at the Trailhead.

Very pretty hike. Evelyn Rodriguez you can have your dogs off leash.

Hikers are no longer allowed to use this trailhead for Raspberry Mountain access. There are no parking signs all along the roadway at these gps coordinates. Access is now only allowed another 1.5 miles up the roadway from the “Ring the Peak” trail access. Issues with private property violations.

We had a great time on this hike. Difficulty was just right with our 6yo, nice climbs up, but not too difficult.

We didn't finish either Devil's or Craig but it was beautiful what we did see.

One of my fav in the area. Gradual, consistent incline until you get above the trees. Then, steeper and harder until you reach the crest of the ridge near the top. Great views! Can be very windy at/or near Devil’s Playground. Took me approx. 4.5 hrs RT - I took my time and enjoyed the scenery.

I really enjoyed walking with my husband.

Beautiful hike, but the trail is not clearly marked. At the halfway point, there wasn’t a clear trail and we ended up going through a gate and up a steep hill. This was not part of the trail, and so we ended up going back the way we came. My suggestion - take your phone and have the map pulled up. Check the map every half mile or so.

Hiked on April 14th, 2018. I'd recommend spikes, but you can get away without them. Definitely don't need snowshoes. Trail is pretty well marked, but make sure to keep an eye out for cairns above treeline.

Very nice peaceful hike...except beware of two black guard dogs at about the half way point by a new build...pretty aggressive dogs...gotta admit I was afraid they were gonna attack us. But beautiful easy hike:)

Fun, easy, great views. Pretty simple hike but worth it.

HIKED ON APRIL 1, 2018

START: 6:30AM
END: 2:30PM

This was my first 14er. Would not recommend as first 14er for most people unless you hike a lot in difficult conditions. The 13 miles RT and 4300ft elevation gain is not easy without proper training and hiking experience.

YOU DO NOT NEED 4WD TO GET TO TRAILHEAD!! ROAD IS PERFECTLY CLEAR FOR ALL TYPES OF CARS

Hike to summit took 4 hours. 2 hours up to tree line, 2 hours above tree line. Lots of elevation gain on first half of hike. Make sure to look for and follow Cairns, some are hard to see but trail is marked the whole way. Some scrambling the final bit up to summit but not difficult.

Spent maybe an hour at summit. Ate lunch and took some pictures before heading down.

Hike back to trailhead took about 3 hours.

Other than strong wind and some icy spots in the trees this was a pretty chill hike. Not too difficult for an intermediate hiker.

2 hour drive from Denver to Trailhead

beautiful but got lost turned from 5.8 hike to 11.48 miles but was fun

Need 4wheel drive to get to trailhead. Rough terrain on the road. Trail is easy to follow until you get above the tree line. With it being slightly snow covered we lost it up the first ascent which led to a slow climb to the basin. High winds in the basin section until you get to Devil’s playground. Didn’t need traction devices on way up but used yaktrax on the way down to avoid slipping on some ice patches. Long hike but great views of the continental divide & the crags!

Drive to the trailhead was easy. Ice on a few areas of the trail. Used spikes; no problem! Beautiful hike this morning!

my favorite morning hike

Started at 6 am...was a little disappointed that after hiking all day....the summit house only had t-shirts that said I Hiked from the car....way too commercialized....and too many people. Prefer less crowded 14ers....

Hiked 3/2/18. As previously reported the road to trailhead is snow covered. I made it fine with AWD and you could make it with 2wd BUT if someone else is coming the other direction then you might get stuck trying to move over for them. Fantastic hike overall. Trail was snow covered but spikes were not needed

First 14er! Started sometime around 5:30 AM. Had some difficulty following the trail in the dark (with head lamp) and missed the 646A sign. Had to use the All trails app to help. Once on the right trail, no problems until the last 1/4 mile scramble d/t missing some cairns. Fun hike. Felt like I did millions of squats. Definetly felt the burn in some areas. Beatiful scenery. Of course loads of people at the summit. It is what it is. Parking for this trail is a bit bumpy, go at a snails pace especially in the dark!

Summited Pikes Peak from here on 16 Feb. Road to trailhead was snowy but easily passable for my truck in 2WD. Trail was easy to follow below the tree line, but lost it a few times above. Just follow the cairns. Huge winds at the summit, but very little snow. Didn’t use any floatation or traction up or down. Great and tough winter hike!!

Hiked 2/3/18. Road to trailhead was snow covered. 4wd/Awd helpful, but there was one 2wd vehicle in parking lot. Much of the trail was packed snow and some ice. Traction not necessary, but trekking poles were helpful. Nice views

First 14ner. And a winter ascent to boot. Tough but fair. Great experience

the mtn was fairly kind a bit cold and windy on top but not to bad for middle of January very little snow and able to summit in 4.5 hours thank God for the hand dryers in the summit house bathrooms.

Great hike, very easy, but could of been mark better. Lots of trails leading off the main path if you are feeling adventurous.

Relatively lightly traveled and not especially hard. The views are beatiful. The first time we attempted it a few years ago, some of the markers had been knocked down and we could not complete it, but since then, we have returned to find it well marked and worth the hike!

Really enjoyed this hike. Beautiful every step of the way. Light snow 1/2 to 1" much of the trail. the rocks at the end are slippery but the views you pay for are more than worth it.
