Great hike with tremendous views at the top. Difficult for the first half mile and the last half mile but pretty easy in between.

Picked a beautiful day to hike up to the Crags! It is an easy trail as long as you stop to catch some air & enjoy the views of the amazing rock formations. The view at the end is well worth it & plus meeting new folks from other places! You will not be disappointed!!

Beautiful. Well kept trail.

Beautiful trail! Beginning is a semi steep climb that gets your heart pumping esp if not used to the altitude. From there a nice rolling trail. Some shaded then a section that opens up to a meadow. Last half mile is another climb to a fantastic 360 view! Road to the trailhead is narrow and rough but my small SUV handled it.

Very nice trail with good views of mountains and forest. Wide well maintained and marked.

Beautiful view at the end. Worth the hike. However, my recording said we walked 6.8 miles on this trail.

Gorgeous views...breathtaking! My family came down on the wrong trail from the top and was tricky to find our way back to the trail. Beginning and end got our heart rates up but it was not too bad for our Kansas crew. We really enjoyed this hike!

I hiked this yesterday; started at noon and finished a few minutes after 2. It was my second time on this trail. The weather was perfect and it was moderately challenging but had places of reprieve. The meadow just past the creek is so gorgeous and is filled with lush green grass, wildflowers, and tall sturdy trees along the perimeter. Once you make it to the split, follow the sign for Raspberry Mountain. It gets tough here. Very steep climb, but it’s shaded, so that helps. When you get to the large boulders, follow the trail through them and them hug the outside of them as you round out beside them. The trail seems to disappear a bit, but just stay near the rocks and after about 100 yards, you will see the rocks that you climb up to the top. The view is insane and totally worth the climb. The only drawback for me was the enormous swarm of gnats that cut my viewing pleasure short.

It was a quick, easy hike. Like previous reviews say, it’s a little steep at first but after the first quarter mile or so it levels out. My 6 pound chihuahua hiked to the end with no problems. Highly recommended for out of towners.

I did see something on the trail that really upset me... I’ll post the pictures in the pictures of this trail. Towards the end of the trail, right before you get to the falls, there’s a giant tee-pee that someone put together. While walking up to the tee-pee, I see two boys standing at it, their Mom appears to be taking pictures while one of the boys is carving his name into the tee pee, and the other his initials! With the mom standing there, taking pictures of them doing it! I couldn’t help but say “Wow, really?” The Mom looked at me, and I highly considered saying something, but didn’t want to make a scene in front of her young boys.

If you feel the need to carve your name into a tree, or anything that was put out in NATURE for people to enjoy, then you are a JERK! Of course, the little boy doesn’t know better, so it’s his Mom that’s the jerk for allowing and encouraging something like this. NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOUR NAME CARVED INTO TREES, or ANYTHING ELSE that’s on a nature trail!!

Now the beautiful tee-pee at that’s the end of the trail will forever have IAN and MC carved into it! The other boy’s initials, that are under Ian’s, aren’t as big and noticeable, but still there. This will probably encourage others who are just as ignorant to carve their names in it as well, and before you know it that beautiful tee pee is going to have names carved all over it and be ruined :(

HAVE RESPECT, and teach your kids respect, or STAY HOME! You can let your kids carve whatever they want into the trees or anything else on YOUR property!!

End rant. I really hope the Mom reads this. This was also the only reason I gave the trail 4 stars.

Great hike with my dog. Was frustrated by some off-leash dog owners. The parent rock easily erodes into pebbles, so the trail is covered with beautiful, large-crystal gravel. That makes most of the trail great for hiking, but also makes the descent from the vista a bit tricky. It also means that there are a ton of animal paths and waterways that (when dry) look like official trails. The trail is totally unmarked (no cairns, blazes, or signage after the first 0.4 mile or so). It’s pretty easy to follow until the climb towards the end. It wasn’t too difficult to find my way, but I was definitely off-trail accidentally a good bit. Pay attention going up so you have familiar landmarks to look for going down!

Very nice trail, very easy, beautiful. A little steep at first but then real easy. I would do this trail again.

One of the best trails in the area, beautiful

Great one to bring out-of-towners on. Has good shade for most of it to help you on a hot day with reasonable elevation gains. And the view at the top is fantastic.

Amazing trail! Overall moderate, not highly trafficked, and beautiful views everywhere! Highly suggest!

Very pretty scenery, smell of pine! Easy trail hike, but difficult to navigate as many offshoots, unless you have the app or compass.

Amazing 360 views from the top. Beautiful trail with a steep incline, levels out then another incline.

Fantastic trail with beautiful rock formations and amazing views at the top. Vault toilets at the trailhead (very clean when we were there). It ended up being a litle over 5 miles. Watch out for afternoon storms in the summer. Overly friendly chipmunks at the top looking for hiker goodies.

Our family loved this trail! We have 4 children who were aged 5-15 at the time and we made it easily to the top. Amazing views, worth the hike!

Worth every step!

I’m not an expert but this was a challenging and varied hike. As another post mention, it’s a nice climb thru forest, then a nice walk thru a valley, then a climb to the top. Perfect. As you get close to the top, it appears as if someone created the beautiful and interesting rock formations there. Really cool. But then you do reach the top and it’s wow! 360 views and places to sit and enjoy. And your high up. Must do.

great trail, inclines a bit rough but overall not too bad. view is awesome at the top, not too much rock scrambling

This is a fun little trail to see some really unique rock formations. Would definitely recommend to anyone whose in that area.

This one is all about the views at the end, a worthwhile reward for (what feels like) a lot of up and down along the way. Know that you absolutely must scramble up the rocks at the top to get the full experience - we brought our toddler in a carrier and it wasn't an issue to climb up with an extra person to lend a supporting hand. I think I might have convinced my parents to make the move to Colorado after this one :) On a Monday morning, the trail was plenty empty - we only encountered two other groups along the way. Enjoy!

Love this trail. Great views and diverse terrain.

Great views along the way with enough effort put in to really make the end of the hike and descent worth it!

A good challenge but nothing too intense - the perfect balance. Stunning views at the top! We took family here that lives at sea level and it was the perfect hike for them to start with
- nice and steady. Definitely bring a jacket for the top, it’s quite brisk!

We came hiking here with two five year olds and two out of towners not fully adjusted to elevation. Hike was a lot in the first bit of the trail but we made it up in a little more than an hour with down in close to 45 mins. Very doable for all types of hikers.
