Decently shaded but still a little hot this time of year. The trail isn’t marked that great which makes it very easy to get off route on one of the many offshoot trails. Overall enjoyable though with some nice views.

Arrived at about 10:30am, was a lovely trail. Steep in some places, but it was fine even with a dog. Encountered a couple of other hikers.

Great hike. Lots of tree coverage and shade and great views at the top.

Nice up and down trail. Got my heart rate up and some minor technical spots. The falls area is minimal, but it's been so dry it's to be expected with Colorado. But it's still a fun area. Rocks to climb on, the creek is really nice and sounds nice. Wild raspberries. Most of the hike is shaded, so great for a hot day. Not a place for strollers, this is a real trail. Also careful of little ones climbing. Fall risk is real. And I don't know why the group of teenagers felt the need to blast Lana del Rey, but who knows? Maybe the bears a quarter mile away needed to hear it. Overall though, nice hike. Good workout. Beautiful all the way.

Very fun hike. Beautiful views. The wildflowers were gorgeous. Very short drive from Denver. The elevation changes are gradual so it isn’t too challenging of a hike; right at 10.5 when we finished. I gave it 4 stars only because it’s Colorado. There are 5 star trails everywhere. Where I live this would be a 7 star trail. I would definitely do it again.

Awesome trail! Close to the metro area and nice and shady.

Nice hike but it was very warm on Saturday even at those altitudes. Not much if a waterfall this time of year.

Gorgeous scenery/views, opportunities to climb boulders, and several streams and some small waterfalls. It was awesome. People really need to stop leaving bags of dog poo around, though; there’s bags everywhere! It’s littering and definitely not ok. But other than that, a great trail! It’s tough though, lots of rocky, uphill terrain. Great workout!

I went on this hike for the "waterfall" and I don't even get how that is considered a waterfall, I could make a better one in my backyard with a hose.

Easy hike up Mount Muhly and recommend for everyone!

Pretty empty trails even on a Saturday morning. Lot of exposure so bring plenty of water and lots of sunscreen. This route is up and down so no sustained climbing. No incredible vistas but pretty views throughout. Wildflowers and butterflies everywhere - very pleasant hike.

Reallly great trails! I went counter clockwise and it was very step by Too Long trail and a nice decent. The views are really solid but not the best in the area. You get some great elevation gains and loses and is a awesome workout . I went on a Sunday and saw quite a few mountain bikers. I'm glad I was going a different direction since it was easier to see/hear them approaching. The bathrooms at the entrance we're also meticulously maintained! I even saw someone cleaning them on my way back to the car.

Beautiful morning hike. Loved the sun playing peak-a-boo through the trees. Water is really low right now so not a lot of water on the falls.

A great trail! I'm not sure I would say it's difficult. More moderate. There is a trail path the whole way up. The views at the top were beautiful! The day was hot so we went through all of our water and we had 4 big water bottles with us! A super great day!

Great for running, or for an intro to Colorado trails. Definitely evidence of higher traffic, but great on a weekday. Very close to a beautiful lake in Evergreen. Nice to have a creek running alongside the trails for the dogs to cool off in.

Easy hike! Lots of courteous mountain bikers.

A really beautiful loop. I was grateful for the pointer about going counterclockwise on a warm day .... the meadow is completely shadeless so better to cover that territory early.

I would rate this trail “moderate” instead of hard. Under 10 miles, fewer than 2,000 feet elevation change, and a well maintained, easy to follow, non-technical outing. Not to say I wasn’t challenged; you gain most of the vertical in less than 3 miles. But in the scheme of Colorado hikes, it doesn’t deserve the hard rating.

Our GPS showed this at 9.2 miles for the loop (ie., without the peak out-and-back so I think the mileage listed is off, which seems to be a recurring theme in my all trails reviews.

The trail is wide enough that it accommodates the hiker/mt biker use quite well. I look forward to going back on a nice fall day!

This is a borderline great hike. The views at the top are simply spectacular. There is a ton of wildlife in the surrounding woods. The trail is well marked and half of it is shaded. The parking lot was full on the weekend but the trail itself was not that busy. Well worth the trip!

Definitely a great hike. Took the north trail up. There were a few steep parts IMO but not impossible. As others mentioned it's mostly shaded which is great in the summer.

Its a beautiful walk thru the woods and very peaceful. Once you marry up with the Noble Meadow trail though, you will need to watch out for mountain bikers. The vista is beautiful but can be easy to miss the turn off for - just watch for bikers coming down the trail!

Trail has lots of people (& dogs). We went mid morning (8:30ish) and it was pretty packed the whole time. We had a hard time finding the trail markers throughout but we did enjoy our time and the views. I also saw a few snakes so keep an eye out. Over all a good hike!

The initial ascent is a little strenuous if you're not used to the elevation. But it pretty quickly evens out and the rest of the loop is either flat or downhill. Great little park, wasn't terribly busy, but I could hear traffic from a nearby road for a good portion of the hike. Still, would recommend as a starter hike for anyone who isn't acclimated to hiking in higher elevations.

This hike was beautiful and easy. I plan to take some visitors here in a few months! I agree with an earlier review about taking a picture of the map before starting, or taking a paper map with you on the trail to make sure you’re going in the right direction.

Hiked this morning and it was pretty good! Restrooms at the beginning of the trailhead were clean and the trail was not very crowded which was nice! There are a good amount of bikes but everyone was super nice. As far as seeing wildlife we saw one mouse (lol) and some deer on our last three miles out. The trail is very well maintained and definitely a Moderate degree of difficulty. I highly recommend you have a GPS map of the trail as it was a little confusing on how to get back to the parking lot.

Very easy but heavily trafficked trail. I recommend taking a picture of the map at the trailhead. This is not really one solid loop but a combination of multiple trails. It can be a short 1 mike hike or a long 10 mike hike depending on the combination of trails chosen. Lots of bikes and trails can get quit congested. This is a great trail for families with young children.

Not a well marked trail. I got to the trail at 7:30 and the parking lot was full but I was able to park close by. By the time I got done at 10:00 there were cars all over the place and the trail was very crowded. I agree with the others who have said that there are many dogs off leash and lots of dog poop either bagged or unbagged along the trail. It smelled bad. I hike at least once a week and I’m not sure I would come back here.

Great hike. Not too many people and especially for a holiday. I recommend taking the North part of the loop up and the south down. Plenty of shade and some pockets of sun. Some of the trek was quite uphill and tough for my little dog but he hopped around the rocks to get there. There is a gorgeous view from the top so definitely coming back. I left about 10:15am and the parking lot was full, so I recommend going a little earlier.

Really good workout! The incline stays gradual all the way to the top. Out favorite part was how shaded the hike is.
