Explore the most popular hiking trails near Rocky with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

The first incline is strenuous but the rest is not very difficult. Good views but I got tired of stopping to let bikes pass every couple minutes. Definitely won't be back.

The first incline is strenuous but the rest of the hike is nothing. View is pretty nice.

The trail is decent, but honestly probably won't hike again unless I do the full North loop. Great proximity to Denver, so it was very busy, and the parking lot fills up quickly. I'd say go try it out for yourself on a sunny day if you're short on time. Sidenote, most of the mountain bikers were polite, but this trail does have a lot of bicycles and a few bad apples who will roll up on your six pretty quick without warning.

3-31-18 The trail is basically a service road that takes you up to an old small spot that was considered a quarry. Looks like quartz was mined for a short time, probably chasing a gold vein!
Super easy trail and maybe a good hike for kids in toe. Great views and nice to explore around the top/end of trail.

Great trail. I suggest taking the south trail head 1st to this loop (versus the north). Don't let the up portion scare you, it's short and after that... the trail is nothing but gravy!

ENJOY!

Good easy stroll. Parking lot full and many people, dogs and bikes on trails all around. Good view and vistas.

It’s close to denver and has great views. A nice trial
To hike when you just need to get outside in the afternoon.

Difficult straight-up hike at the beginning of the trail but lovely vistas at the top and sections of flat trail for recovery. We went early on a Sunday and the parking lot was full when we finished. Lots of mountain bikers but everyone was considerate.

Great hike! Has a good mix of elevations with beautiful views of Denver and the mountains. There are directional signs to keep you on the right path. Saw a coyote not far from the trail. A couple other times I’ve seen deer.

A lot of people at the trailhead and at the beginning but less so the farther you go. Parking was a challenge but the views were great!

This is a great loop on the less traveled, west side of White Ranch. I prefer to do the loop clockwise for better views and a shorter, but steeper uphill back to the parking lot.

Very accessible trail head with ample parking, great place for a sunset (or sunrise) once you reach the table top. You could explore for as short or as long as you like once you get up top.
