My first hike, really enjoyed it. Not bad, being a fresh beginner I found some part harder than most. Beautiful scenery. Didn't see any animals other than chipmunks but still fun.

Very nice trail! I really enjoyed it!

Wyoming is so pretty. Easy family hike with lots of places to stop a take in the beauty

Surprisingly great walk. Mostly shaded, and has some variety, not a flat.

Nice hike, lots of shade!

Easy hike, more an out and back loop but I think we lost it at one point and just went up some rocks and back down so as not to get lost. beautiful scenery everywhere you look. I absolutely loved camping here though. Most beautiful place I've been so far for camping.

Trails not marked well and we got lost ended up walking 11.5 miles . Too many unmarked forks in the road. Loops within loops confused us. We’ve done many hikes no problems . Maybe someone messed with the signs .

We liked it, certainly a beautiful area. I do wonder where some of those diverging trails went.

Great trail, very scenic.

Scenic but just a walk up a canyon in a picnic area.

Great trail, no crowds, lots of shady spots

Great short hike, only a few minutes off the highway. Amazing rock formations to climb about and explore a bit off trail. Great for our 3 and 8 year olds! Also fun to watch the climbers on the cliff faces.

Okay for a little hike, especially if you’ve never seen the neat rocks. It’s not marked very well, so allow more time than you think you’ll need in case you get a little lost. Super buggy in the middle of summer, so wear bug repellent.

Nice trail but make sure you bring lots of bug spray.

Nice easy walk beautiful views

My favorite for after dinner hikes and bike rides. 15 minutes away from Laramie, this is a fairly easy trail that is easy to get to.

This is a hiking trail, NOT a mountain biking trail. If hiking, I would have rated it much higher. The scenery was very pretty. We were here in the middle of June, wear bug spray.

The trail is a loop but it was really easy to loose the trail. We met another group who had also lost the trail and had just given up.

I couldn’t find this particular trail from where it had the trailhead, but we wandered around that area and went on a beautiful journey. Lots of rocks for climbing, beautiful flowers.

End of April, lots of snow still and loads of mud! about 2 hours to do the whole loop.

pros: beautiful wooded area, peaceful, quiet, decent trail.

cons: strangely at least 3 quarters of the trail seemed to be uphill...if we did this again, we would start with Aspen trail instead of Middle Aspen, maybe that would make a difference.

well..all in all real pretty. however trails are not marked real well from the parking lots. I ran into several groups trying to find where it left from. as well, I had to hike the road to find my truck. not a fan of that. a bit confusing. c'mon forest service...you can do better.

Nice nice Trail very Scenic and pretty I think it's well-marked but I believe it is an out-and-back and not a loop.

Nice trail beautiful views. Family friendly.

nice hike....really like seeing the rock climbers out there. We did go off the trail for a while....wound up on the hill/mountain next to turtle rock then realized we didn't have have an easy way to get back to the parking lot so we made our way back to the trail and and finished it up. No matter if you stay on the trail or venture off a bit it's worth the trip out here especially if you are not used to seeing the giant rocks....it's pretty amazing seeing them for the first time....and after the first time it's pretty darn good too.

What a beautiful area! The abundance of trails and relatively gentle grade of the area made it easy to create a larger loop of our own (we ended up at ~8.5 miles), though many of the trails were muddy and the lingering snow patches meant that we twice lost the trail and bushwhacked until we ran into another one. The campground gate is closed for the season, so there are no entry fees to be paid but you will need to walk down the park road for about a half mile to get to the trailhead. Oh, and we saw a moose, which was icing on the already delicious cake!

Loved this hike. Didn't see anyone else on the actual trails the entire time I was hiking. I ventured off of this trail onto a couple of the other trails that veer off this trail. Ended up doing approximately 7 miles. It wasn't marked at all on those trails so I relied heavily on the map on this app. Was 50's on October 12th. Some snow on the trails but easy to navigate.

Nice heavily wooded trail that avoids a lot of the highway noise at other nearby trails.

Great Hike.. Started out on Hwy 80 and hiked in to the Trail Head.. Very peaceful relaxing hike.. Seen other hikers with dogs.. Animals have to be on a leash.. No horses allowed.. From the Hwy to TH and back it is around 6.1 miles.. Happy Trails!!

Great Trail for hiking, running or biking.. Easy access to TH, with a restroom at the Trail Head (TH).

Would be a great hike for family's. It has some moderate elevation change, but nothing to drastic.

I usually park at the ready area and hike to the TH (.5 miles)... Happy Trails
