This was a nice quick hike! We brought along our doggo and there were many shaded areas to stop and rehydrate.

I mean it was a decent hike. but the climb up, while physically challenging, was honestly boring. it's just dirt and gravel everywhere, there's no shade, and when we went (mid August) there were bugs swarming at our faces and biting our necks. it felt like a desert. the view was nice, though. and yeah there are a lot of mountain bikers, but there's usually enough room to let them pass.
probably wouldn't do it again for fun, but for exercise it's good

Trek as long or short as you want. Looks easy, but it's not!

Some hard steps in the beginning then trail. Bikers are hard core as they pass!

Gorgeous view. Great walk from the town up to Red Rock.

The hike is okay. The 'castle' ruins are really neat!

Horse poop everywhere. I don’t think the hike is worth the $10 to get in.

Great hike. A little crowded on weekends but worth it.

Lots of trails to choose from and lots of sun. Had meant to do the Zorro trail on my off day for an easy run but stumbled upon these trails. Pleasant surprise. Will definitely be going back to venture some of the tracks I didn't cover. Lots of bikes but this me some time to rest on some of the steeper inclines. Great space

Great scenic trail. Seems crowded on weekends.

Many huge red rocks to see. However, I think the most worthwhile spot is the amphitheater.

Challenging in some areas for novice hikers but overall a great place to hike!

Great hike!

historic ruins, nice hike, good views. give it a go.

truly easy, but good scenery

Great trail, parked in at entrance so the uphill portion was first and had an easy downhill second half. Was a beautiful day but beware they have concerts most nights so plan to hike early.

This was a nice easy trail. Great for all ages and skill levels. Beautiful scenery and close to downtown Denver! There isn’t much shade so wear sunscreen or bring a hat if you’re going during the day. I good place to bring out of town guests and take pictures.

Great trail with your kids! Nice and well maintained. Our 5 and 7.5 year old did not have any issues and want to come back.

Great short hike! I intended to do the 3 mile Red Rocks Trails but ended up doing this one instead. Mostly did it for the views of the rocks and would be fun for family/friends who are in town and want to see Colorado things. Got there close to 8 and the parking lots were completely full but we found a space. There weren't actually a lot of people on the trail since I think most were there for yoga!

Great workout with my pup. Uphill out & downhill back

This is a good trail for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time and can’t go far from Denver. Easy for all levels and the view isn’t bad either.

Nice hike close town. Easy trails with great views. Ruins are pretty cool. Good sun and some shade along the way. Several trails you can add on or not to make the trail shorter or longer to your liking

Great family hike! Plenty of shade and not too challenging but a great work out!

Good trail, lot of exposure so plenty of water and sunscreen a must in hot weather. Also watch out for rattlesnakes, had a close encounter with one today on the trail.

Go early, this trail is exposed and gets very hot, too hot for dogs midday.

Great hike, nice views, but saw two rattlesnakes (7/17) on our way down Turkey Trot. One was quite big and one was a bit smaller. Just be super careful because they’re really hard to see if they’re just off the trail.

Really enjoyed this hike. It was cool and foggy, but it was still lovely. Pretty easy hike if you’re in shape. The ruins are fascinating.
