EASY TRAIL I don’t know what was moderate about it... it’s just a few hundred feet of elevation gain. Very little shade so bring sunscreen and water, nice 4 miler. $9 fee for entering the park

Beautiful hike! Pretty crowded at 9 am on a Weds. Saw a rattlesnake at the beginning of the trail so make sure to keep your dogs leashed. Lots of rock climbers to watch which was cool. This is a pretty decent hike for a family.

Not a fan of this “trail” It’s adjacent to HWY 76, it’s busy & loud even with headphones on. The water had an awful odor, trail itself was a road leading to an unsightly construction site. There were sharp rocks that were loose getting into your shoes. I did not enjoy myself enough to finish it so I turned back after a mile

Great trail to start the hiking season. Easy moderate I would say. Took the Staunton Trail to service road to Bugling Elk (shorter distance to pond). Total of 9.9 miles. Mostly shade, some sun on service road. Shared the road with bikers, hikers, kiddos (in the first mile of trail), horses and pups. It’s Wed. Started at 9:00 am, trail head parking full when we got back. Love this Colorado State Park of ours. Brought a mask, used when passing if not able to distance. This trail system is very well maintained and marked. Enjoy!

Amazing wild flowers. Mostly covered, went counter clockwise based on reviews and it was nice getting the climb our first. Nice and cool walking next to a creek for most of it

Great for trail running! The wildflowers are in full bloom! Beautiful!

Beautiful day. Went about it a little different then prompted, and sooo glad we did. The overlook is worth it and doesn’t add too much mileage. We got there at 730 on a Wednesday, and it wasn’t too crowded. Chipmunks are also VERY friendly!

I enjoyed the hike up and down. I had a good time with the whole family

Great hike! Takes me an hour or two, but I like to stop and enjoy the scenery a lot. Plenty of shade throughout the trail to keep the sun off. Also, plenty of space for distancing throughout most of the trail, if that's a major concern for you. One of my favorite spots.

Great little trail. Made it to the top and still managed to get to work on time. Was not heavily trafficked when I went (6am).

Stunning views the entire way. Started around 4pm and the trail was mostly empty. Saw a bear around 5pm in the valley so stay alert! Will definitely be doing this one again.

Great trail! I went at 4pm on a Tuesday in late May - passed maybe 20 other groups in either direction. Eldora is a popular park, and this trail is easy enough that it stays busy. Great for trail running, as the elevation gain is steady and not too steep. I hiked up and jogged down, it took me about an hour. Some slippery/loose/sharp rock, may be rough on your pups feet. My pup seemed fine - be sure to keep them on a leash, lots of rangers, people, and other dogs. Very well-defined trail. It’s a lollipop, and the top is one-way right now for protective COVID measures. Trail is narrow, please bring a mask for when you pass people.

Great hike (as always) and not as crowded as many of the other trail heads in the park that we passed. About half of the hikers masked up when we couldn’t stay far enough apart...

Great views with many wildflowers and butterflies. A lot of it is not shaded, so bring a sunhat! Path is pretty narrow a lot of the way, so passing people is nearly impossible without taking a step off the path. Overall and enjoyable hike
