I did this hike yesterday (11/11) and the trail was snow covered. It was very pretty with all the snow. We didn’t do the entire trail but enjoyed the portion we did do. I did it fine with nice snow boots but it was a little slippery at times. My friend had crampons on her shoes and they seemed to work well. Snow shoes would have been overkill

I did this one in summer, pretty heavily trafficked but it is nice and cozy to walk around the lake.

It's a short one, but great for a morning away. Had the trail to myself and didn't see anyone til I got back to the parking lot. No snow yet, but the incline is real! Views are amazing at the top (minus the mansions built into the mountainsides).

Beautiful but busy, go early

Decent hike that starts with a mild incline, then fluctuates with ups and downs. Nice mellow hike, no real view points. Good for staying close to Denver. Some of the trails are blocked off so it was easy to get turned around, navigating with AllTrails was needed to get to the right place.

Easy trail, gets a bit steep at the end. Very quiet and peaceful. Trail is mostly a dirt road in the woods, then opens up to a small meadow. Would be good for snowshoeing.

The first part of the trail is light on people. Once you merge into Meadow Trail (which then heads to Devil’s Elbow), there is heavy traffic (a lot of mountain bikes were out today).

There is very minimal snow on the sides of the trail and some of the standing water is starting to ice over, but no issues for walking through the trails. This hike met my craving for getting out and about, but the trails are definitely on the east side. It’s more like a walk that a hike that gets your heart pumping. Similar to other reviews, it is easy to take another unintended path and end up back at your car sooner than expected. I did enjoy the views of the mountains and overlooking evergreen high school. Overall the hike was enjoyable, but I probably wouldn’t do it again.

great trail for dog walking, clean and great look out points a little last on the decent

A new favorite. Short but a great workout with how steep it gets in spots. Nice at the top to sit and hang out, will definitely be back!

This is Colorado trail running at its finest for me, in the mountains but not steep, a place where 4 miles feels like you barely started.

Went on Memorial Day and it was a great place to hang out for the day. Seeing the dam flow on the east side of trail is cool.

Initially intended to do the entire loop but accidentally cut across halfway thru and didn’t want to back track (again). Beautiful scenery, and it’s best to get there early. Heavier traffic begins around 9am. Overall, highly recommend!

Really awesome trail that has a waterfall and many connecting trails BUT, as simple and short as it is you can get lost pretty easy so be careful. Saw one snake but not too crazy of wildlife beyond that. CLImBerS will love this place as it has many tie off points for ropes or you can free climb and boulder a bit. Descent amount of people but everyone was pretty chill and it was a good vibe all around

Trail was great for a nice afternoon stroll. Just enough to get the blood pumping. Not much of a waterfall right now; but hoping to do it in the spring again.

Great groomed trail and wonderful views

So beautiful- if you start in the second lot, the climb is steeper. Got a bit confused following the map, because the upper loop was closed in places.

A great short hike. The steep incline provides just enough of a challenge. Great views at the top. Ideal for bringing a dog.

Nice little hike. I would call this easy rather than moderate. A couple of sections to get your lungs working, but easy otherwise. Lots of people and pets around 11:00, but until then, we virtually had the place to ourselves, even on a Saturday. Not too far from town, so definitely one I'd do again!

Nice short hike that gets a work out in with the elevation gain. Would be good for someone acclimating before tackling a 14er.

I tend to enjoy hikes a bit more when there is water involved. This is definitely a fun hike and amazing once you get to the falls! I must say I am guilty for packing a nice snack and enjoying it by the water!

Really great hike!

Great for sightly more difficult family hikes.

This was a nice trail to hike with kids and dogs, but there were a lot of (very polite) mountain bikers. Not too steep or long and some nice views along the summit trail. Nice and shady and a mostly smooth trail.

Lovely little trail (more of a service road) with a variety of views and a reservoir at the bottom. Not too busy but most of the people on the trail were walking their dogs, some without leashes (which are required). There was some ice on the trail in the shaded areas so once winter is in full swing bring microspikes.

Very nice walk around the lake! Pretty crowded and almost didn’t find a parking spot. Path is well maintained, though and views are wonderful.

Not bad, good for a short hike and time in nature. Good for families and dogs. Pretty busy on a Saturday, by the time my group left at 11am the parking lot was packed and many people heading out to the trails. I liked this and would be a good hike for my small dog.

Great hike with great views at the top.

Great quick day hike. Awesome view at top. Be prepared for incline!

Bergen Peak has a beautiful view. This trail didn't have many scenic views and I hardly saw any fall colors but all in all it was still a nice trail and definitely a good workout. Also, a great place for trail running.
