We'll probably hike this trail again. I interviewed the family and the consensus was a "4" rating because the kids didn't 'want' to hike and my husband requested facilities at/near the trailhead.
It was beautiful and serene, mostly rolling hills until we reached the boulders. Not trusting my dog to stay with us (terriers!) he was pulling us up and we slowed him down.
Very nice to have a lightly trafficked trail. Quiet except for the echo of gunshots from the nearby shooting range for the first mile or so.

Perfect for my dog and 4yr old.

Put in 14+ miles hiking today. Definitely recommend the waterfall followed by the overlook. West Meadow following the overlook is a nice contrast. Save hiking Marmot Pass then Scout Line (hiking only) for the go home leg. Perfect way to finish the hike.

I'm pretty fit and suggest 2 liters of water minimum IMO for the route I did.

Beautiful hike through a valley, great for hiking with kids or new hikers. I would label this easy except for distance. Lots of other people, I'd try again on a weekday. Also there is a fee to enter the park.

Great trails, wide, not rocky. Beautiful scenery and lots of walking through trees. Definitely going again!

Rolling Creek Trail is a forest hike. Not very crowded on a Sunday (good thing). Close to Denver. Turn left off of Highway 285 (Hampden) when you see the Rustic Tavern Restaurant. Then go about 7.8 miles to trailhead. NO RESTROOMS AT TRAILHEAD. SUMMARY: Two stream crossings and great mountain vistas after about one mile.
