Beautiful hike!

Nice trail. Sometimes hard to follow. Beautiful aspens and conifers. Some wild flowers, some spots pretty steep. Lots of cow poo...

Great for kids! I recommend earlier to get as much shade as possible.

We did breakfast at Daily Bread in town & did this hike on very full stomachs... just about a perfect combo to maximize kids’ energy/minimize whining.

Amazing. I road my bike and around every curve was another picture moment. It was so interesting to see the changes in the flow of the Colorado River. The Canyon walls were majestic, souring, stunning. I hope I get to ride it again.

awesome hike that every fire fighter should experience we followed the trail up and through all the markers then bailed off of helispot 1 into the East drainage and out it added distance and alot more challenge to the trail. also ran into a small black bear below the first set of memorials.

Had a great time with my fam on this trail.
We always are up at the flat tops and have never done this, not sure why but it is done and what a great view...
gotta work though to get it or at least I had too.

Very nice hike.

Gorgeous views from the top! The trail doesn’t have a finite ending but the views at the top are stunning! There is a steeper more direct path that goes to the same place at the top but this trail is a winding road going up. We saw lots of wildflowers, a bunny, and some chipmunks on the trail.

Hiked a little over 8 miles round trip. Starts on gravel road past the house. Once you get to the big bridge about four miles up I recommend turning back, unless you just want to hike longer. There is no real end to the hike from what I gather going so far and other reviews. We went a ways past the waterfall/bridge and it’s a pretty steep incline. It’s a pretty trail and places to stop along the river. The trail is a little overgrown in areas, but we wore shorts since it was July and were fine. You’re in the shade a lot.

Loved this trail. You can take dogs on leash which we did but there were lots of dogs off leash and that’s a problem for our dogs so if a dog is off leash a runs up to our dogs they can get aggressive. I think it’s great to let them off leash but it’s not always safe! Will do this trail again without our dogs.

Very nice hike. Would recommend taking the trail as opposed to the road. The trail is pretty steep but enhances the experience! Great views at the top.

Tough trail, lost footing a couple times, very steep at times. Bear sighting; saw it when I was at the hotshot memorial site across the valley by the lookout point running along the hill. Beautiful hike, great workout!

This trail was beautiful, but very poorly maintained. Almost the entire trail has been overgrown, and by the end of the hike, our legs and arms were itchy and scratched. Some parts were so covered in brush, we could barely see our feet. There were also no signs or indication that the trail ended. We hiked a few miles longer without realizing until we checked our Fitbits.

As others have said, this trail is pretty steep! My phone tracked 4.4 miles round trip. The views were beautiful and the memorial was quite moving. I didn't see anyone the entire time I was on the trail.

Tips
-There is very little shade, bring water and a hat (and sunscreen)

-The section after the overlook is more difficult/ overgrown than the first part.

-Use caution when bringing your dog. I had mine on a leash and due to the steepness he almost pulled me down several times. Not due to pulling or chasing jack rabbits, jut because he had to watch his footing too.

Really cool trail. Pretty views and the road is easy to walk along. Saw enough people to not feel desolate but few enough to feel peaceful. Watch for mountain bikers!

You ok

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 up and down- 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
