Beautiful views and well maintained trail.

I love this trail! Easy 3 or 4 mile loop options. Beautiful scenery! Great for walking, jogging, biking, families.

Very easy. Pretty views of red rocks. Nothing outstanding but a decent workout.

Great running trail! I decided to do a 10K (since boulder boulder is canceled) and it was quite the challenging run! Lots of uphill but it wasn’t crowded. There was mud due to the rain we got last night but I’m sure it will be gone by tomorrow!

Pulled a hamstring last week and impending rain resulted in looking for a shorter hike closer to town. This was perfect. Started a little after 7 am and thought I saw a bear on the the way in. Looks like one was spotted later. Beautiful wildflowers, nice views, nice elevation gain. Trekking poles are perfect for this sometimes rocky hike (why do people just carry them)? Keep in mind that the city is sometimes in view and occasionally you can hear traffic, but it is still worth it. Some shade too.

Paved and sidewalk, multiple trails, dog, kid, and bike friendly. Heavy traffic, nice scenery and nature sounds. In between neighborhoods.

Beautiful trail! Please note that lots of people were not wearing bandanas and/or face masks when passing others nor they were maintaining 6 ft apart and the trail gets extremely narrow half of the way to the peak. I had to get on the side of the trail multiple times, to let them pass. Not much shade on this trail. Special Thank You to Ranger that gave me a brand new face mask with filter! (forgot my bandana at home and hiked with a disposable mask when passing people)

A short walk out to the viewpoint which has a pretty impressive view of the rockies. Great view..not much of a hike.

Really pretty views but way too crowded and too much fencing for me to enjoy myself.

Nice easy trail along the front range. Heavy traffic. The power lines are kind of a bummer. I included the Fairview Reservoir Loop which is a short awesome addition.

Hike with amazing views. We didn’t realize the views we’d get until we kept going higher and higher and higher. Should have looked up the trail more to know but it was worth it.

Fun hike. Well maintained trail. Most of the elevation gain is in the first half and then it flattens out nicely for a smooth finish and fantastic view. The earlier you finish the better, the trail is pretty narrow so lots of stopping for two way traffic once it gets busy.

Saw a mama bear & her cub today on the backside of red Mesa loop! Keep your eyes peeled! Trail was loaded with wild flowers and pretty views :)

Hiked this on 05/17/20. Very crowded that Sunday morning, but it’s a nice option for a quick hike close to Denver. Recommend coming early and being prepared for lots of people. The scenic areas are nice for such a local trail.

Great, easy hike with some really extraordinary rock formations! Went on a Saturday and the park was at capacity by 8:30am. Get there early or be prepared to queue!

Just a spectacular park. Enjoyed the Willow Creek part, but the South Rim is a revelation - mud and all.

I really enjoyed this trail. There is a lot of wildlife and some wild flowers. The views are beautiful and the trail is fairly short and easy! However there are quite a few people and very little shade.

We were looking for an easy trail for a 7 year old and 3 year old. There is a bit of elevation change but everything is pretty easy and there are some nice views of the rock formations. There was a rattlesnake on the trail ahead of us and then he made his way into the grass. It was a beautiful day on memorial day weekend so the trail was pretty busy. Lots of families so it is definitely kid friendly.

Great trail with an opportunity to see lots of wildlife.

Nice hike. But the gates opened at 0502 when the park opens at 0500. Would have been 5 stars but a reduction for each minute.

Very visual, beautiful scenery. We went on Memorial Day weekend and it was probably the most busiest times to go, with saying that, the views outweighed the crowd. We will be back for sure on a weekday.

I'd say this is an average Trail. The views are very special, except for about half a mile into the hike where you get to the Lookout Point. Other than that, there isn't too much to see. It's an amazing Trail for bikers, so if you're hiking, be cautious of bikes on Sharp turns. However, this Trail is really close to the city, so we enjoy this Trail when we don't want to drive too far

Trail is closed, likely due to overcrowding.

Great trail for walk or run!

Really excellent neighborhood trail. It's not so much about the main trail on this one...it's about the little trails that branch off and go down by the creek. I felt like I was Tom Sawyer exploring down there. Really cool. Awesome spot to bring the family and chill by the creek. And the lake at the end is awesome as well!! Very beautiful!! There is even a little waterfall on the way. My only gripe is that the first half mile or so is pretty boring. I would recommend parking at the Arapahoe Park if you can and start there.

Great easy trails. It is a very narrow trail, so it is hard to keep social distancing. Most people we saw wore a face covering.

It’s a nice and flat trail. Kids friendly, and no pets allows. We did it around noon on a Thursday and it is not busy at all!

Great trail with decent elevation increase. Great day hike, would suggest going on a week day or early on a weekend (before 9am) to avoid crowds!
