Spectacular!

better go before more snow comes, only me and 2 other hikers were on the trail, and they luckily marked the way with their feet. Awesome views all around. Bring snow chains if in a small vehicle, I passed a sedan that slid into a ditch in my Nissan Sentra, i had no issue with chains on my tires. snow is about 6 inches at TH, more at the top, very quiet and a nice getaway

Well marked and great views at the top!

Beautiful marked trail even in all the snow!! Great views of the mountains. I had it at 5.4 miles.

Trail well marked and thank goodness for the carens as we traversed the boulder field at the top. The donuts tasted soooo good when we reached the top... and yes, lots of people st the summit!

Amazing views. Inclines kick your butt a little bit but the views on the top are worth it.

This trail was definitely hard! It is uphill the whole way up and continues to get steeper as you reach the top. The views are absolutely amazing. It got extremely cold and windy towards the last stretch of the trail so wear warm clothes! I would also recommend hiking boots and poles. There are some parts with gravel that were slippery. There was some snow up there but not a lot. Would definitely do it again!

Amazing view at the top, best trail we have done as far as diverse scenery. Will definitely do this one again but will do the Devils Playground turnoff.

Tough but beautiful!!! worth the work!!

In my opinion, this trail is a lot harder than moderate for a relatively “in shape” adult. It is a steady incline the entire way to D.P. with some very steep portions that are rock/gravel. Trail is relatively easy to follow.

Of course, the views along the way are priceless and 100% worth the journey. Approximately 8-9 miles round trip, depending how much wandering you do once at the top. We averaged around 1 hour per mile. We are from Illinois and the altitude had our lungs working pretty hard!

Overall 4/5. Would try again with better preparation.

Unbelievable rock formations! Easy valley hike until you get to the base of the Crags. But worth every step!

Great hike! Did get steep at some parts but the view at the top is amazing. You must go all the way to the top —you won’t regret it!

Other reviews mention the trail isn’t well-marked, but it’s not terrible. I got a little lost, but I didn’t go far before realizing I needed to retrace my steps. Trail is fairly well-trodden.
Views at the top are absolutely amazing.
From car to car took me four hours, but I am still acclimating and it definitely slowed my pace. Will definitely be doing this one again!

From the trailhead, we took the loop southeast toward the reservoir for a shorter hike. My seventy-three-year-old mother joined us. She’s used to mall walking and this hike was not difficult for her. There were a few steps where I held her hand, but she did great! A small bit of this trail is a dirt road, which I didn’t love, but once you see the reservoir, all is forgotten. The water was down quite a bit, but it did not take away from the splendor. We met a few hikers and bicyclists on the way in and everyone was so amicable. I would definitely hike this trail again and plan to next summer with my four children in tow.

Good description of trail and views. Mid October was very nice. Not too warm. Trail could’ve been marked better.

There may not be a ton of drop dead views or challenging hikes but this place offers miles of easy hiking. You can see Pikes Peak and other mountains (further back on the property) The aspen groves mixed in with the pine are gorgeous. Great for fall foliage pics and in winter this place will be awesome for snow shoeing. Enjoy!

The reward at the end of this hike is so worth it. You get a 360 degree view! Breathtaking! The hike is moderate but if your not use to the altitude there are small spots that can be difficult. Rest take your time, enjoy the quiet and beauty along the way.

Great hike! Loved everything about this one- smaller distance but you still get a nice workout in. As others have stated, the view at the end is amazing. I enjoyed the trail as well- lots of trees and openness. Only saw one other person on the trail today- little bit of snow off to the side.

Another one of my favorite hikes. Used to hike it regularly when living in Colorado Springs.

Lovely hike. I went clockwise but next time will go counter clockwise as I think this is the more scenic approach. Beautiful Aspen forests on the south side of the loop, lovely meadows, streams, and peaks to see on the northern side.
Lots of stream crossings. Fresh scat on trail just northeast of Dome Rock. Not sure if it was cougar or coyote. Be smart and safe when hiking.

great trail. great views

#twoenthusiasticthumbsup! start early and enjoy the views and a lunch at the top.

Crags trail is beautiful especially in the fall. The 360 view on the top was amazing and so worth the hike. It’s a little hard to tell where to stop but make sure you follow the trail up to the top! Great trail. One of my favorites so far!

Beautiful trail! I did it counter clockwise, would recommend doing it clockwise as it got steep at the end and I was out of gas. The leaves were turning their fall colors, just breathtaking. This is a great reminder of why I live here!

Did this trail with the family while carrying the young ones in packs. Wife had a difficult go up the first 1/4-1/2 mile but once it leveled out it was very pretty and would love to finish the pancake rocks portion sometime! Trail was clean, well marked and in good shape. I think moderate is a good classification

Great view in relation to the effort it takes to get there
