Cheif Ladiga Trail is a great ride. The diversity you get to see riding it is really incredible. My dad and I have enjoyed biking together here several times. He's even rode from Jacksonville to Georgia. Looking at hitting the trail Thursday afternoon with my dad and daughter. Being able to spend time in the outdoors with my Dad who introduced me to the outdoors when I was just a kid , now being able to share my love for the outdoors with not only my Dad , but my daughter as well is wonderful. Not many places for young kids to ride like this piece of heaven we have right here in our backyard.

Great trail. Be aware that, in addition to mountain bikes and horses on this trail, motorized dirt bikes are also allowed, but are to yield to all. BH

Great hike that consisted of a trek out of the woods to a scramble over the rocks and a little bit of shake to huff up. Views were beautiful,and looking across the horizons you can see the top of Shasta standing proudly above the clouds. Majestic site. 2 liters of water is more than enough. We hit the trail at about 6:30 which made for a great day.

Not for faint hearted... I felt easy while hiking from Stanford ave may be because I regularly go to gym, carry water as per body requirements. This is workout hike and not scenic one.

Stunning hike, one of the best hikes I have ever been on.
The hike is hard for sure, especially the first few miles.
You can get to the Tatoosh Peak now.
Be careful of the trail about 4 miles in, it has washed out, very slippy on the hill sides, use poles.

Amazing trail if you are in need of getting your heart rate up. It’s mostly uphill all the way around, and the view is beautiful of the mountains and city. Dog friendly and you may even see some horses! Making it to the top is well worth it!

The sun really beats down on you and there isn’t a view that you are making a goal towards to see. But it is nice to be next to a river and also to sometimes see Big Horn Sheep.

my husband and I arrived around 8:45 am this morning to hike this trial. it must’ve been a good day to go, because there really weren’t many people on the way up or down! the hike up was really nice since it was still early, the temperatures were perfect! we didn’t stop much, so we arrived at the hot springs a little over an hour. the hot pools were smelly, but beautiful, the water was super blue! my only complaint was that one of the only people up there at the same time as us was a middle aged man, all alone, ass naked wallowing in the pool with the double waterfall. I expected to see some naked teenagers, but seeing this guy was actually pretty creepy, we didn’t appreciate that he kept standing up and exposing himself either. it was much hotter on the way down but it took only 45 minutes or so, it’s a really good hike for all skills levels with a great reward!

Stunning views and lots of butterflies! Bring water and bug spray

Great hike. Beautiful nature, but a lot of mosquitos!

Nice hike, not too difficult but definitely a good workout. The trail is pretty narrow and there's lots of horse poop all along the 4+ miles. Had to keep stopping my dog from trying to eat it. Eew! My dog did get a tick on this hike so use bug spray and check yourself and your furry friends after.

First time there yesterday. Great hike for rehabilitating my knee. Good workout and great views. It’s going to be a regular for me.

The most beautiful hike I've been on so far in Colorado!!

I prefer this for an early evening stroll after the horses are put up. Great for dogs. Gothic and the valley never get old to look at - flowers were strong but starting to fade a bit. Prefer to take in the fall as the aspen change and the bugs are gone due to cooler weather. This this is more of an easy moderate.

We did this hike on Wednesday 7/11. It was perfect for our family which included our 5 children ranging in age from 1 to 8. Definitely bring bug spray. We hung out by the lake (which is more like a pond) with the mountains in the background and enjoyed the peaceful scenery. I believe we crossed onto McDonald’s Creek trail too because we also walked along the river. It was really enjoyable.

This is a great place for beginner to intermediate hikers. This is a higher traffic trail, but it still gives you a great taste for the wilderness.

Great final peak to this at Thunder Mountain. Very remote with incredible views

This trail is ALMOST an EASY... the last .3 of a mile gets REALLY STEEP! That’s the only downside! About 60% of the trail was shaded by the trees. The creek was always babbling next to you and some of the views are stunning. ALMOST as advertised... be aware beginners that the ending may surprise you.

This is a great getaway from Denver, this loop is nice and one should connect to the waterfall trailhead. Bikers were more in numbers than hikers.

Lots of trail markers but this hike in red doesn’t include the whole loop. Technically the necklace expands above what’s mapped out here if you follow trail markers and not this app. If you go off the red trail here your distance increases from 4.6 to closer to 7 miles.

Snow has mostly melted off on the trail to Pear Lake. Just patches of it on the trail. The lake is beautiful and we could see fish swimming in it.

Hiked this as a long day hike today. The first couple of miles through the trail were through the woods with occasional meadows to break up the scenery. I took a long break at Jordan Lake admiring the beautiful mountain backdrop. I hiked up the east side of the lake to get to the other Naturalist Basin Lakes on the bench above Jordan Lake. I lost the trail once I got on top but there was no chance of getting lost. Shaler Lake was great even though the spring time waterfalls were nearly dry. I went cross country to the other lakes, Faxon, LeConte, and Blue with lots of ponds inbetween. The waterfall and wildflowers below Blue lake were unreal. The trail down from Blue Lake to Morat Lakes was in rough shape (steep and crumbly). A great hike, but it definitely wore me out.

Nice warm-up circuit. Some technical spots with a few features that are in need of slight repair.

Nice trail. Saw one post that it was not well marked, but only found that to be true near the top where trail changed names. Rated a 4 b/c we ran into dirt bikers on trial, not real the reason I hike.

Gas Well Path is a beautiful and difficult hike. The ascent is challenging and beautiful. There are several paths at this park that you can choose to continue your hike. Would highly recommend.

easy trail to folloe. there is no water or anyplace to sit after you get past the lake so plan accordingly. I did not and it was painful

Bugs are out! I had different bees follow me for most of my hike. Mosquitos are bad in the higher elevations as well due to the snow melt. Beautiful hike but I wish I had worn a bug net on my head or bug repellant. I stopped to take a picture and had 4 mosquitos on my arm! lol. Lots of poison ivy in the lower elevations. If you're allergic to it definitely wear long pants and long sleeves.
