Great trail! Nice and windy through the trees with spectacular lookout points.

Great trail. Moderate elevation gain. Cattle grazing in one of the meadows so you can get pretty close to them but they don’t seem too bothered. Lots of wild flowers. Trails were not muddy and we were here early so it wasn’t crowded. Beautiful views.

Spruce Meadow and Mountain Top loop. Beautiful day. Dog on a leash. Enjoyable hike with varied terrain.

Nice wide path most of the way. Good for kids and dogs. Mix of tree cover and interesting rock exposure. Great hike close to Larkspur.

Beautiful sunset views this evening

Surprised how clean the trail was today . . . have been seeing a lot of bags of poop lately. we went all the way out and back, not too crowded for a Monday morning (9 am). Great views from windy point!

Beautiful trail with lots of different routes. It can get hot so make sure you take plenty of water and wear some sunscreen. Not a lot of traffic but plenty of shade for you to cool off.

4th time doing this hike on Monday, May 18. Arrived around 8:20, only about 8 other cars there. Weather was cool (54) and windy. By the time we returned to the car, it was 84 degrees, and wind had long died down. Good thing there was lots of shade. Trails were very in very good shape. Missed seeing flowers, but am sure they'll be there in July and August. Views were spectacular, especially of Pikes Peak on the south side, but could also see Long's peak on the west side of the loop. Parking lot was fairly full by the time we got back. There were several bikers, early, but mostly hikers, especially on the return. Surprised that no one - bikers or hikers - had masks. We had ours, and only put them on as we approached others. P.S. Watch out for the horse poop! ;o)

This is a great trail with partial open and shaded areas. Lots of great views. Dogs allowed on leash (pack out poop). There are some steep uphill parts depending on the route you take (others meander more gradually uphill). You need to have sure footing for this one. Portable restrooms at trailhead.

Nice trail, lots of people and limited parking

Great spot for mountain biking! The trail is lots of fun but not too long. Awesome if you don't have a ton of time.

Beautiful views from multiple spots on the trail. We have been doing this hike for years, my kids love this one too. Pretty easy, not steep, nice way to spend an afternoon. Trail is easy to follow, parking lot gets full, it’s pretty busy.

It was a nice ride and The place

Great shady trail, perfectly secluded on an overcast Monday morning. Excellent for an easy trail run.

Love a good loop trail. Beautiful views, clear trail, well Marked. Even some shade through the forest. Just gotta get out of the way of bikers and horses

Decent easy trail that was well marked and had a mixture of forest and field. Great views of the Rampart Range. Some areas have deeper sand which isn't great depending on your footwear. Not a lot of elevation, so it's a relatively easy jaunt.

First time doing the whole loop. Stopped several times. Need to bring more food next time. Grace did 99% of it at 3yr old.

A great easy trail with clearly marked paths and nice conditions. Pretty views and nice shaded forest area on a hot day.

Aloha inter webs, this was a nice hike with good views of the butte. I didn't like how close the South part of the loop comes to Tomah Rd but other than that it was a cool walk. #letsgoforawalk

Nice little trail. Lots of sweet lookout spots. Good for a trail run

Great trail with amazing look out spots. Trail is free of ice and snow, I think they are widening the trail so just be careful on the top loop there is a lot of dirt and debris being moved around. Started around 9am and already around 10 other cars in the parking lot.

Today is May 4th - does anyone know if the snow and ice are gone from the Trail. I love this Trail without ice and snow

Xlnt weather conditions today. Started about 8:40, only 7 cars in lot. Trail completely dry except for the fresh horse droppings. Saw very few people until last 40 minutes. Bikes, runners, dog walkers, & a 6-pak of seniors. All very polite & honored social distancing. By the time we got back to the parking lot, there were about 30 cars, one horse trailer, and a police car.

nice trail! went on a Monday at 10 am. not too busy until we finished the hike. nice shade from trees and a couple of open meadows. great for the family.

Beautiful hike! Did the 5.5 loop. It is important to pay attention to the signs as there are several trails and routes. The views are spectacular. I would say this trail is medium difficulty. It’s definitely not easy but it’s not difficult.

Nice trail. Kinda crowded on this warm Sunday afternoon.

Perfect for this time of year. Watch for mtn bikes or horses in the scrub brush parts but a very pleasant hike.
