Lovely trail, shaded for most but narrow and a lot of brush. The waterfalls are beautiful and most of the walk is along the water with a cool mist. I’m not sure I’d rush back to do again but I did enjoy.

Steep climb! Garmin shows 3.38 miles round trip. Very dry but there are pretty wildflowers along the trail. We read all of the signs along the trail and we pushed a coin into the wishing stump.

Truly appreciate our Firefighters. Would highly recommend this memorial hike.

This trail is separate from "lookout mountain" to get to actual lookout mountain you're looking at a 4+ mile hike 1 way. We did this trail on 6/9/18 and were pretty disappointed to find that it was not taking us to lookout mountain, the trail "end" on all trails literally was just a spot along the trail. We kept going, but were unsure of how far the actual summit was from where we were. If you want to get to the summit of lookout mountain, I would seriously recommend doing some research before heading out. We found this trail on all trails and headed out, wish I would have known more before hiking.

As far as this trail that is on all trails goes, it does offer some great views of Glenwood Springs, and the nearby mountains. We didn't see any wildlife, and nothing else notable or spectacular about this hike. The trail is mainly a single track dirt/crushed rock path. There are some wider areas.

The trail itself is primarily used for mountain biking, and quite honestly, for hiking it's a pain to get to from Glenwood Springs, and there is NO parking at the trail head, so you must find a spot on a nearby street and walk up to the trail head. If you're looking for some seclusion though, this is the hike for you! The trial is almost 100% sun exposed, so take plenty of water. We took 164 oz of water for 2 people, and almost drank all of it by the time we were done, I'm sure if we would have stopped where the all trails map ends, we would have been fine.

Moderate uphill walk. The cemetery is interesting and Doc Holliday’s grave is a great photo op! Try to go in the morning since there is little shade in the afternoon and it can be a bit dusty. It was a short but fun adventure.

The trail is poorly marked and has regular traffic. Lovely views on the first half- a good up hill work out.

Enjoying a gorgeous early summer hike with my Mountain Buddy!! Life is good!

great views!! Trail is wide and used by paragliding company.

Rode this trail 15 miles on bicycles that we rented from Canyon Bikes! So gorgeous and enjoyed every minute!

agree it is closer to 6-7 miles,a real thigh burner, very humbling to read all the plaques dedicated to these brave souls.

Awesome views and super peaceful at the top but it did not have well marked trails at the various forks... had I not downloaded the map I would have been in trouble (no cell service either so can’t follow that way)... but regardless it was def a recommended trail!

Conditions were perfect on 5/5/18. Little bit of mud about 4/5 of the way up but it was no issue. Our friend from NZ loved it!

Got lost on this trail right at the end. The trail has a few forks and it started sleeting and our phones died! We found our way to the resort, though, so we weren't too lost.

Had a great time on this trail, totally saved our weekend! After being rained/hailed/thunderstormed out at our Plan A close to home, we decided to backpack further away where the weather would be warmer. Initially planned to backpack at the Grizzly Creek Trail but despite the 'backpacking' tag on AllTrails, the sign at the trailhead said no camping. A quick search of the forest service website listed No Name trail as a backpacking area, so we drove a couple miles down Glenwood Canyon and started hiking.

Not a lot of great flat spots for tents along this trail, but we did find a few basic campsites capable of supporting our two tent four person group. We camped about 4 miles in (after the bridge, up the hill a ways). On a beautiful 70 degree weekend, we saw less than 10 people the entire time despite being close enough to hear and see the trail. The trail is always close to the river so water filtering was always a quick walk away. Also dogs are allowed on leash which made our pup a very happy camper! Plan C worked out great!

great trail

The rushing river is nice, as are some of the mountain views on either side of the canyon. That said, be FOREWARNED, the All Trail stats are appear to only cover the distance between the trail head and the bridge. Per the US Forest Service, the trail itself is actually 7.6 miles one way with a 5,000 ft elevation gain. I, unfortunately, learned this the hard way and only looked up the US Forest Service states after being befuddled on how a 6.7 mile hike could have taken me over five hours and left me so exhausted. Here is a more accurate summary of the trail.

Finally, if you are going to go past the bridge, a pair of long pants are advisable a the path is a bit overgrown in spots

good hike nice views

Great short hike with a view and lots of history.

Great hike. Soothing water the entire hike.

Beautiful hike along raging white water, dips in and out from forest to rocky terrain. Very good view from back of Canyon at end of trail.

The route isn't 3.5 round trip. It's closer to 6-7 if you out and back it.

The raging water was great to hear and the trees smelled so good! Beautiful place.

Soooo intense. We made it to the look out point but decided to make the trek to the actual memorial with all the head stones. It was so worth it to see all of them but it was an incredibly difficult incline! Great work out.

Beautiful trail. Much less crowded than Hanging Lake.

Hiking along the majestic Colorado River with my wife is a dream come true for us. We went from Grizzly Creek Rest area to Hanging Lake Rest area and back; a little over 7 miles. Relatively Easy hike.
Beautiful day to hike.
Good amount of water rushing through.
A few kayakers on the river. A few bicyclists.
Not many people in the trail.
W took a lot of great pictures.
We would recommend this trail for any out-of-state visitors to get an idea of how how beautiful Colorado is.

One of the most special small walks around. The energy is so special; but if you get winded easily,save that energy for the first bit of the walk up as it's a bit steep in the beginning (and dependant upon season can be slick). After that it's a breeze with beautiful views and so much history. Don't just stop to say hello to Doc, go explore the rest of the cemetery as well... there are some beautiful hidden spots and memorials deep in the trees on small animal trails.

Went on an emotional hike up Storm King mountain. It was beautiful, but eery at the same time. In 1994, there was a fire that claimed the lives of 14 brave firefighters. It’s a steep hike with 14 crosses surrounded by momentos from where the firefighters had passed. I was glad to reflect and do this hike in solitude. No snow currently or mud :)

Absolutely beautiful hike.
Gets more difficult the higher you go.
We went this weekend and had two trees crossed over the path to climb over. Stunning views and creek.

Spectacular views! Great views of Glenwood and Mount Sopris. There are are a couple of different trails. This trail is very close to town. Both trails plus the road will get you to the cross at the top. The trails were a mix of snow, ice and mud. Yak tracks good but be prepared to take them on and off. It is doable without yak tracks. Lots of history.

Was a great hike, enjoyable, few to little people on the trail but was incredibly muddy. The ice was a factor at first and I was thinking of hearing back to the trailhead to grab my yaktrax but after the ice let up the mud began. Nonetheless, easy and enjoyable
