This was my first big hike as a "regular" hiker, not having hiked much before but now weekly, and it was challenging. The first section is scrambling up a hillside and a winding, wide trail up Peruvian gulch. The fall colors were just starting to show. Several feet of snow toward the top made it a real work out; the weather was great. The views from the summit were amazing. I took the tram for free to go back down and enjoy Oktoberfest. I would recommend this hike, however, it gets precarious the last mile and those afraid of heights might not enjoy it.

More of a walk, tons of horses and kids out. Dog friendly.

Pretty easy short hike up to the falls. Did some scrambling to get up to the top of the falls and followed the creek at the top for a while. Falls are beautiful right now!

I loved everything about this hike except the crowds, but then, that is probably why it was crowded on a Sunday afternoon. The trail is well maintained, the climb is moderate up until the last quarter mile when it gets strenuous. There was a patch of snow on a fairly steep part that was difficult to traverse. A couple of my kids slipped in that section. But the creek crossing at the top of the climb was not a problem at all.

I love this trail. Moderately difficult with spectacular views that are worth the steep climb. I went yesterday and there was only one patch of snow/ice about 20 feet long. No big deal.

fun but steep I would go again

fun some big homes in the area
