Loved this hike! Moderate but with amazing views!!! Please clean up after your dogs and pack up all your trash. The rangers told me they would close the trail if people continue to litter with trash and pet waste.

Awesome hike. Just the right amount of difficulty and length to bring the kids and have a great day. Amazing views from the tower.

This hike starts pretty, but quickly becomes very long, hot, dry and yucky. It was about 3 miles walking through the burn area, before we came to trees and shade. We did not make it all the way to chair rocks due to time constraints. We are used to the distance of this hike, but this was hard with heat etc. Took my Border Collie who is used to hiking, but by the end she was very hot and had sore feet. Drank 4L of water on this hike.

Easy hike with a solid view

sux for offroad driving, waste of time. good for ATVs

Great views and not too hard on the muscles. Very enjoyable. Lots of people with children and dogs enjoying the trail.

A group of friends and I attempted to hike to the arch, but we couldn't find the trail after the creek and where we approached the rocky area. There is no signage and the trail isn't well maintained which threw us all off.

I had been on this trail 10 years ago with the Colorado Mountain Club where our two leaders knew where to go.

We were bummed that we didn't get to the Arch or close to it, but we had a great time and it was a beautiful day.

Great hike close enough to Denver for a fun half day. We went on Saturday 5/13 and it was a beautiful day. Not too hard and the views are spectacular. There were plenty of other hikers when we went, especially at the lookout area, but it wasn't like being in Rocky Mountain National Park in the summer or that level of crowded. South Rampart Range Road is a fun and slow drive and you could probably get by with a car but a 4wd is deffinitely recommended. Overall great hike with some awesome fascinators. Will be back again.

Great trail with spectacular views of the lake and dam. Didn't see another hiker the whole trail. Went down to the river and ate at the picnic table at the bridge area. Parking at the top as suggested is the way to go. You even have a bathroom.

Great for kids! Spectacular views at the lookout!
