Too crowded. Too exposed in summer and fall.

Beautiful easy hike.

Great trail. Major elevation gains in the end. The views from White Rocks are amazing and the Sand Cave is awesome. Definitely worth the leg burner hike!

Awesome way to get to Hensley Settlement and Sand Cave. Good trail head parking and plenty of space. Beautiful hike up with great views but WOW better save this one for Leg day! It is a smoker the last bit. But worth every step.

an amazing hidden gem! pretty easy stroll. besutiful scenery! lots of area to explore. note that this is a public road and contrary to the sign you are allowed to walk on it at any time of day.

A great day hike. Only slightly challenging at times.

Nice short hike, with most of it downhill to the falls, and uphill back

Hiked this trail up to the fire tower and was not disappointed. Long but easy trail; last 10 minutes to tower pretty steep but well worth it. Views are amazing and would definitely do it again.

The trail is rocky, but worth the effort.

Beautiful trail and very peaceful. You will work your thighs and gluts, but it is worth it

This is a really nice, fairly easy trail. We loved walking to the sound of the water and much of the trail is shaded. There are only a couple of areas that you need to maneuver up and down some rocks (not a stroller friendly trail but still great for kids), but the majority of the hike it very easy. It was a little crowded, but we did go on a day when school was out.

Rock part of trail slowed down the run and trail signs aren't the best but it's an awesome trail.

This is a trailhead to trailhead out and back run (ride, hike, trot, whatever) at Hidden Mesa Open Space. It's 6.66 miles with a healthy burst of elevation to climb back up the mesa. Short section of paved pathway (Cherry Creek Trail) to traverse near the Franktown-side trailhead. Given the mileage and how that burst of elevation feels on the return, I refer to it as Devil's Traverse (but apparently alltrails isn't on board with that...)

My first real hike. Definitely would recommend it to anyone who’s never went hiking. Beautiful ending and scenery.

Beautiful view of the lake from the top!

Easy hike, well maintained and even if you get lost it’s easy to end up at the parking lot! Lots of nice bridges and creeks. Perfect quick little 2 mile hike

Hiked down to the goat trail in the snow on January 14th. It was beautiful and worth every step. Kinda steep coming back up hill. A must see!!

Nice well maintained trail. Challenging climb to the top but really worth it especially on a clear day. Best to do it early in the day as it can get quite hot. Took about 3 hours round trip.

Could be a great combo hike/trail run
Some bikers on javelina.
Decent parking that includes dirt lot.
