It's not flat, that's for sure. But not too hard. There's variation. Some trees, some sunny spots. Rocky path. Some small streams. Everyone had their dogs on leashes. It was beautiful. Several great views.

My roommates and I did this hike last Saturday (5/12) as a part of the many challenges offered through Cotopaxi's Questival. We started our hike around 9 am and completed the out-and-back around 11:30 am.

It was a beautifully majestic morning as the mist settled upon the mountain and made us feel as though we were trekking somewhere in the Northwest U.S.. However, this did take away from some of the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape due to the lack of visibility.

This was a bit more strenuous than I initially anticipated, but I also went in with no prior research being done on the hike and thought it was only around 3 miles round trip. When it was more than twice that length I was a little surprised, but enjoyed the challenge nevertheless.

This was a very pleasant hike that I would definitely like to do again (on a clearer day) when I can take in some of the views!

beautiful hike, with wild flowers and wild life....very nice light during sunset

Lots of switch backs but it was really beautiful. A nice view of the skyline!

great views

Perfect hike for non-acclimated visitors. Great views and easier hike to get outside!

Close to the city, quick trip- great for running or a casual stroll. Saw a lot of folks with their dogs out

Fun but crowded. Great for families w littles.

Slightly challenging, very well traveled trail, beautiful views!

Awesome easy hike with a few steep areas.

Very easy walk along the creek, but it is incredibly busy. It was nice to be able to stop and enjoy the creek if you could find anywhere that wasn't already occupied.

Great easy trail. It was cloudy so views weren’t that great. Trails were well maintained

My go-to hike in the area when I’m looking for something super easy and to just hang around at. The rock formations are fun to climb as well!

Great views, decent elevation gain.

It was really beautiful and challenging because it is a long trail. We took Turkey Trot up and went to the castle via Castle Trail then back down castle trail. The Walker Castle is a faint memory, but you can get a feel of it’s grandeur from all of the dilapidated fireplaces.

Always a fun hike. Great views by the homestead.

Awesome views but it was tough for our three kids (8, 6, and 3). As adults we loved it though.

Easy walk in an breathtaking place. The rock formations are amazing with great views.

Good workout due to steep elevation grade. Well maintained trail. Everyone was courteous-so no issues with bikers. Interesting “castle” ruin at top. I would hike it again - but either earlier in the morning or later in the day since the mid-morning sun is very strong and there is very little shade on the ascent.

Great workout great local hike

It's just a really long walking path. Might as well be walking up sidewalk on a slight incline. Would be really cool for mountain biking or running. Not hiking worthy. Cool views, but nothing compared to what Colorado has to offer

In the area visiting, so great hike for so area views. Clean trails, lots of people.

It was beautiful and well groomed trail. I put 4 stars coz of the bikers. They are inconsiderate and rude to hikers, walkers. They need a designated area for bikers only, so they can be rude to each other.

windy on days with bad weather, since most are along Meadows

Did this one a while back in the fall and it was awesome. Such an easy stroll and I loved the changing leaves and creek alongside the trail. Great for all ages.

I live on this mountain and enjoy hiking here. It is busy during the warmer months, and as others point out, many bikers don’t share the path or watch their speed which is annoying but hey, driving 6th Avenue has the same issue so you get used to it. Watch for rattle snakes!

Loved the hike. Beautiful views all hike and great trail conditions. Only issue was a few people had dogs off leashes but it didn’t take away from the hike. Will definitely be going back!
