Great combination of open field and shade from the trees. Path was well marked and the sand was good for the dogs. Not busy at all Sunday afternoon. Great easy trail.

Easy trail for sure. Good portion of it shaded. Great for kids or for trail running. Well marked trail with nice views. Good place to take out of Townes not used to the elevation.

This was a great hike with versatile scenery. You had meadows, mountain views, walking in the woods, open area. We saw wild turkey. It wasn’t difficult nor too easy to hike. There were log benches scattered on the trail and easy signs to follow. Yes there is horse poop along the trails but just step aside. We went on a Sunday midday and there were people but not crowded. We plan to make this a regular one.

This was a great 5.5 miles venture, 2.3 miles was the upper loop. There was a couple other out and back trails, not included in the 5.5 miles. Took two moderately active people an hour and 45 minutes. Saw a coyote.

Great easy trail with scenic views. Some nice shade along the way

Great trail, very scenic. The service road going to the top nearly killed me

I would rate this more on the easy side -a pleasant walk. Nice views from the top.

This has been our favorite trail so far. We hiked the entire path with our dog and sons (ages 7 & 9). The scenery was beautiful and the path was perfect. It wasn’t too hilly and very doable for kids. When you hit the split path sign, I definitely recommend taking the Stairway to Heaven. It added a little bit of distance but it was well worth the extra effort. Everything was very well-marked and there weren’t too many other people. Oh, but you do need to watch out for horse poop. We will definitely be returning to this trail.

Nice Trail. Signs were very easy to follow.

One of my favorite hikes! This morning I trekked up Spruce Mountain, then down the steep, rocky service road to the Greenland Trail. Doing this nice 5-6 mile loop allows you such varied terrain: stunning overlooks from up high down through serene scrub oak and pine forest to beautiful prairie and meadows below. Lovely!

Beautiful little hike, about 5.5 miles. Went today at about 8 AM and there was very little traffic on the trail. Came down about 1030 and there was a few more people coming up but not crowded at all. Horses, bikes, and hikers all had plenty of room from what I saw. I felt the trail itself was easy, but for those who aren't experienced the first 1.5 miles could probably be a little more tiring.

I love this hike! Nice trail and excellent views.

Great trail. I would say a good amount of this trail is shaded! Views are beautiful.

Beautiful and close to the south Denver Metro. The trail is very well maintained. Minimal elevation change. I would call this a nice longer (5 mile loop) walk before I would call it a hike. As a non-mountain biker, it looked like it would be a lot of fun to bring a bike to. Also very horse friendly. There are benches and picnic tables all along the trail. Nice place for a picnic but no challenge for a hiker.

It’s a good hike, great views, sadly no shade, wear a hat. It’s rocky at the top and views of Pikes Peak are amazing! Enjoy, not hard at all.

Beautiful trail. Gets strenuous near the top. Views payoff!

Easy trail with nice views. No shade whatsoever.

Super easy trail. Not a lot is shade. Would be perfect early morning or evening.

Such a fun hike! Beautiful views of Pikes Peak and cool rock formations and not much elevation gain. The 5.5 miles goes by pretty quickly!

Beautiful open area with views of the hills and rock formations. So many wild flowers. This is a very easy trail, would not call this moderate. You go in and out of shade, which is nice.

Enjoyed a great hike, views are amazing up on top, the 5.5 miles is pretty easy with lots of switchbacks.

Quite challenging, but worth it for the incredible views.

Fun family hike. Great views of the Rampart Range and peaks in the area.. Lots more to explore on the trails in the area. We will be back.

excellent views. quiet and easy trail in most places.

Really beautiful hike! I just moved here so the elevation is something still I'm working to get used to, but it was still a fun, beautiful hike! I definitely will be going back! There were plenty of mothers with their kiddos either hiking with them, on their back, or in strollers.

The photos of this hike to not do it justice in my opinion! It is absolutely beautiful. We saw horses, deer and turkeys. Definitely a hidden gem of a town/trail we were glad to discover!

Great hike for the family! It was gradually inclining nothing really hard but just enough. Great views points all the way around! Lots of horses today which was fun to see!

Very nice hike, lots of beautiful scenery to take in! One minute you're walking in an open field, then the next you're surrounded by trees. Very peaceful. There were alot of horses to share the trail with, but the riders were very respectful to us, slowing down so not as must dust/dirt blew up by us. I would definetly recommend this trail to anyone looking for a relatively easy hike.

Loved it! Beautiful, varied terrain. We even saw a coyote! Trail sign indicates 5 miles, my gps said 6, so I’m going with 5 1/2.
