Pine, Colorado Map

Just a forest walk. The trail just keeps going up. No variety and easy to get lost at switchbacks as the trail is not well marked at all.

Fall hiking here is beautiful. Not a lot of people and plenty of wild life to see. The hardest part of hiking here is picking which trail to do. They all offer something special, which brings you back over and over again.

Great for kids- our 17 month old loved it. Clear trails with great views

great so beautiful I definnently recommend it

Lots of colors at the lookout!

My mom and I went on a Sunday morning (about 8:30am) and it was a beautiful day. We wanted to make it a half day so we went on the Staunton trail and back the same way. This totals to about 6.5 miles. I was surprised to see that such few people were there at that time. They did start showing up as time went on. This was a gorgeous and peaceful hike. A lot of trees but also some spots for sunshine. We didn't use sunscreen and did just fine. There seem to be so many trail options. Cant wait to hike more!

Not the best views, but a nice rolling hike with clearly marked trails, ample parking and only a few others around!

Trail was a mix we took Staunton ranch trail (easy) to Scout line Mod/hard depending on ones condition. lot of rock climbs and switch backs. we then took mason Creek trail to the bond, looped to bulging Elk trail, back onto Staunton Ranch trail. all in all a 10.42 mile hike. Beautiful park and we all enjoyed the lack of people and the scenery.

Beautiful location for trail running and hiking. I took my two dogs and they loved it. Watch out for bikers. Some of the trails are narrow and not enough room to easily pass. The trail head has restrooms which is always a bonus. Happy trails! Definitely did not disappoint!

Incredible hike, especially if you make it to the lower part of Elk Falls.

This is now one of my favorite hikes. We parked down by Elk Creek Road and took the Staunton Ranch Trail to Scout Line Trail, then we jumped on Marmot Passage Trail to Chimney Rock Trail which took us to Elk Falls.... spectacular! Coming back, we went from Chimney Rock to Bugling Elk Trail which took us back to Staunton Ranch Trail. The whole journey was 13.2 miles of breathtaking views, wild raspberries and wildlife. Can't wait to go back and check out the Mason Creek Trail!

Started at noon on Friday. Sunny and warm. Lots of beautiful wildflowers and hummingbirds zipping around. Easy hiking, wide trail. There were a couple of great spots to take in the views and take pictures. We stopped at 2 to wait out some rain and eat lunch. After an hour, the rain wasn't stopping so we resumed our hike. At about mile 3 - 3.5 (which we figured out later was the end of the rolling creek trail according to the map) hiking became more difficult. The grade increased drastically, lots of rock steps and stream crossings (we counted 7-8 total). Some of the crossings were logs and some were rock hopping. The rain made everything pretty slick, our progress slowed significantly. The rain and mist gave everything a primordial feel. Lots of moss, lichens, ferns, mushrooms, flowers, and a couple underground streams. We made camp at 10,300' right before 6pm. Found a great spot near the top of the ridge. With lots of moss covered boulders and trees. The rain continued on and off during the night. Our hike out took about 1/2 the time (approx 3+ hours) in the rain. Definitely an awesome overnight backpacking trip. Ours was 10 miles round trip. Rain gear is a must and hiking poles would have been a good idea.

beautiful, magestic hike. starts off fairly easy and the higher you go, the more difficult the climb. Lots of large beautiful boulders and stones near the river.

trail follows closely to river and is well marked and maintained.

definitely recommend it!

I highly recommend this trail to anyone who's looking for a moderate day hike. The trail is fairly easy to navigate, and you will find yourself stopping quite a bit along the way to snap photos of the beautiful scenic mountain views. We hiked the entire trail in about 2 hours, and we stopped for lunch along the way, so it would make a great morning hike if you have other things to do that day. It was also very lightly traveled by other hikers, so we mostly had the entire trail to ourselves (on a Sunday, too!). Overall, I rate this trail a 4/5.

Easy hike not too far from the city. Pretty good views and well-kept trail--if you're not trying to drive far I would recommend this loop. $7 entrance fee

Suggest hike up after walking part of lake because going other direction is killer stairs! Good workout not much shade though.

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.
