Beautiful simple trail with access to the cold water. Definitely worth the trip down!

Amazing views, I definitely recommend to jump in the water. It’s refreshing and helps stay cool on your way back up.

Really cool trail! I didnt expect the wraparound views at the end or all the signs to read with information about the area. Go at golden hour! Really cool. Went with our dogs around 5:30-6:30 on a weekday and only saw two other people. The views walking up to the top are really cool too. All paved, not strenuous, would take my parents here and would come back again! No parking lot, all street parking. Streets to get up to the area are narrow!

So, it’s mainly a flat dirt road that has a decent descent into Idaho Spring. It’s not a 4x4 trail, there was a ford escort on the road. It has some washouts, but nothing major. I am sure it will be beautiful during the fall. And the signage isn’t that great - even though it says OMG on the signs, you really are just following Virginia Canyon Road. So as long as your seeing those signs your on the right path. It’s a short drive, with some winding drop offs, but nothing scary.

Easy safe bike trail. Level. Very pretty.

This is one of my favorite places to walk. Whether you go clockwise or counterclockwise the path always has a way do taking your breath away. There is always other people there without being crowded. You can walk it two or three times without getting bored but also get some good milage in.

Great Trail for the little ones and for anyone that wants a beautiful view

Hummel Park and the walking trails are fantastic. If you are new to the city, check out this park.

Great paved trail in Plainfield. One of my favorites things about my home city, are the walking trails.

Great trail for a beginner like me! We saw tons of wild flowers, desert plants and bunnies. I'm really glad we went early (9am) to avoid the heat and crowds. Once we we're finishing up, the parking lot was WAY more full.

It is disappointing to see all the homelessness along the path. There are also the scattered remaining of disassembled bikes lying along side. This used to be a rather nice path, sadly not anymore.

Great trail with some amazing views of the city at the top. Combined with the steps it makes for a nice, quick workout. The switchbacks have loose gravel so I did slip a little on the way down. I had a free pass for Seven Falls and I do recommend seeing the falls at least once but I wouldn’t pay just to do the trail.

Excellent paved trail, clean, not too busy on a Saturday morning. Scenery changes so it keeps things interesting.

Not a hike, but a nice small stroll.

Paved trail part of the trinity network. This trail today was very easy and accessed from the Pecan Valley Park in Benbrook. About a mile down is access to Benbrook mountain, a little hill that has a couple circuits and good rocky incline to trek around. Beautiful views of trinity river and shady forests.

Great trail variation and scenery, no bugs today.

We spend several days camping in the area and drove this beautiful road several times. Very scenic and we hike many trails

really fun trail. it is one of those trails that has the attitude "Work hard and play hard". after intense up hill battles you are rewarded with great down hill turns, keeping both your muscles and mind constantly engaged.

This is not a bad trail but was very busy. Lots of foot traffic and not very many bikes. There seems to be a lot of construction going on making improvements.
