Cool hike to knock out in an afternoon or morning. The trail begins in open foothill country before making its way into some lightly wooded areas. Its a steady but rather easy grade all the way up. There are numerous trail in a network in this are and so there are a few ways to the top it seems. All the trails are well marked and some are indicated for hiking only- no bikes. There's some slight scrambling for about 40 or 50 feet to get to the top of the rock, but it's accessible to most. The top provides great views of the mountains in the distance and what appeared to be Long Peak. The whole trip took about 3 hours.

Beautiful views of Longs Peak from the top. We were able to see Pikes Peak far off in the distance. The falls were nearly dried up at this time of year. I look forward to seeing them in the Spring.

Great varied trail with a just a couple steep hills. Otherwise it’s mostly flat. Beautiful sunny 55° run today! Saw lots of prairie dogs and birds.

Was trying to go south ridge and Audra carol but missed the marker to turn off on to that trail. Saw the marker on the way down from Horsetooth Mountain. There is a bit of climbing once you get near Horsetooth. A few bikers on the trail on Sunday. Great views!
