Decent place. Quiet, especially mid-week. Trail stays close to neighborhood in places.

Those false summits will getcha. Very rewarding hike.

Beautiful views! Easy hike that's sort of stroller friendly. More for a nice stroll with great views than a work out. There are two view points that are not to be missed (second view point is gorgeous though prob not the most stroller friendly, I was glad I had my baby carrier with me). Not too much shade so bring water and perhaps avoid doing the trail in midday sun on a hot day. It wasn't too crowded when we were there but we were there on a weekday. We got the last parking spot at 11am so I imagine weekends are hard to find parking. There was poison ivy all over so keep an eye out. Such a pretty hike though! Definitely recommend.

Great hike, plenty of rest stops and shady portions. Most of it was great for trail running and the view at the top is definitely worth the hike

Gorgeous hike. Amazing views of rocks.

Beautiful trail but ends abruptly. I saw a few coyotes and other hikers said they have seen bears and lots of rattlesnakes there. So if you go be careful of the wildlife!

Extremely easy hike, very doable for all ages. I only gave this a 4 star rating because I like my hikes to be a bit more challenging. Beautiful views of the red rocks!

Carpenter Peak Trail is an easy, 6.2 mile hike that gives you views of Pike National Forest & Roxborough Park. If you're going to Roxborough State Park to view the red rocks, I don't recommended this trail, simply because the view at the peak isn't as spectacular as the view from Fountain Valley trail.

Nice little hike up to an overlook that definitely delivers on the views. Watch out for snakes on this one though.
