Wow, this was one of the fun trails I've done in the past! Unfortunately my phone died while I was recording. The weather was perfect for it, (72F, cloudy) so we were able to handle 90% no share trail was not too bad.

Short but challenging and beautiful hike. This is great 14er practice without committing a full day or travelling far from Denver.

Very well kept trails, easy trek before sunrise to top of Mt. Falcon with great views of Denver

Very challenging trail and it is great for exercise of a class 2 hiking trail. Few areas are just plain steep dirt with little loose rocks here and there and I would imagine it will be very slippery and muddy during wet season. About 3/4 to the top is a little scrambling. Short and intense.

Wide trail from the parking lot- good for all ages. Rolling path. Nice views from the castle. Interesting info signs. Trails are well marked.
Was there by 8:30 and top lot was full. Saw a couple deer.

Fun easy dog friendly hike.

nice easy loop. went on the 4 July. wasn't as busy as expected. took my three boys under 7 and my 10 year old nephew.

keep in mind this trail and it's proximity to civilization. one of the only "closer" trails I do to Denver. with that said if you want a more enjoyable experience get there early

This was a beautiful and challenging hike with great views of Red Rocks and downtown Denver. We did the complete out-and-back and it ended up being 3.8 miles with nearly a 2,000 ft. elevation gain. It’s definitely a steep climb to the top, but the views are worth it. The path is also lined with beautiful wildflowers! Be aware of loose rocks and pack lots of water!

Definitely difficult but doable if you’re in decent condition. Great views of Denver on one side and the mountains on the other. I missed the entrance the first time around so keep your eyes peeled.

Fun short hike with the kids. Great views!

Love this hike! I come here often when I can't drive out too far, but need my nature fix. A beautiful place, with tons of scenery to photograph.

This ridge walk should definitely be rated ‘Easy’ rather than Moderate. Completed it in under 2 hours... great views and a mostly flat, well-maintained trail. Would be good for trail running.

Good for a quick hike and a little sweat!! Would be hard if not in physical hiking condition.

Place is awesome! Perfect spot for a group of 10 out here for a bachelor party, everyone enjoyed it. The trail doesn’t take long and isn’t too difficult, and it’s beautiful country to experience! Thank you to all my best bros for making the trip out here! I love all y’all!

Super chill and mellow trail. Bring some water as the sun can dry you our pretty quick. Take advantage of the water at the top of the 'mountain' and also near the golf course. They say it is only for golfers, but do it anyway--you deserve it.

Holy wow am I sore. Such a great hike, though. The continuous incline may prove pretty difficult, but the trek down far surpasses the hike up; it's actually pretty scary in some spots, so wear good hiking shoes/boots to save yourself from sliding on the loose rock and sand, particularly at the top where one fall could break some serious bones or worse. Take it slow, bring plenty of water, and be ready to sweat--a lot. Zero tree coverage, as well, so some may need sunscreen. It really is worth the effort as the veiws at the top are some of the best I have seen in the area. No rattlesnakes this time around but others seem to bump into them quite a bit. Be wary of that, too. The summit rests all the way at the tippy-top of the foothill, so just when you think you're done, keep going. Aim for the communcations tower and you'll be climbing (literally) hand and foot up to a great accomplishment near the end. Get out and do it!

I like this trail. It is a great workout. Hikers beware though, there was a HUGE rattlesnake on the trail 6/22 about 1/4 of the way up and he was coiled and rattling right on the trail. I am pretty sure I scared him as much as he startled me. Just be aware that there are rattlesnakes on/near this trail and watch/listen for them. Stay safe!

Close to town, yet wilderness!! Nice hike!

Really nice easy walk around the rocks. No shade so bring a hat or umbrella.

Don’t underestimate this hike. Bring good non-slick hiking shoes, and don’t go if the ground is wet. The trail is all loose rocks and dirt so coming down, I had to crab walk at times because I didn’t have hiking poles. The views are worth it though.

Lovely trail with a few options to go harder or stay easy. Definitely the on the Easy side of Moderate. Saw lots of wildlife (lots of birds, a few deer).

Absolutely beautiful!

Decent trail with great views. This was the second time I did the trail and decided to do it in the evening. Views are great at the top and along the way. We started heading down just before sunset and met two mountain lions standing on the trail about 1/3 of the way down. We were able to keep our distance and go around them safely.

Really gorgeous and quite easy, but still a good workout. It’s great if you go in the evening, especially on the night of a concert because there’s no one on the trail and plenty of shade.

Great challenging hike without having to travel I70. Steep and rewarding. Careful coming down especially the bottom section as trail is loose and slick. Terrific views from the top.

loved this trail. peaceful.

Great hike! It is definitely steep, loose and difficult but the 360 views are stunning and the rock scramble at the top is really fun. We completed the hike with our kids, 9, 7 and 3 year old girls.

Its definitely a challenge! Beautiful views. Hardly anyone on the trail. Great buns workout. Its close to home so it's super convenient too.

Pretty difficult hike for a hot day. The lack of shade makes it pretty exhausting even though it isn’t that long.

Beautiful views. It was a bit difficult for our novice hikers. There was no shade and temps were 97*. I’m sure it would be much more pleasant with cooler temps and more experience.
