We came here for a short hike in the morning. The scenery is absolutely stunning. Trails are pretty well marked. They even have specified trails for those who have dogs and want to walk them without leashes. Easy to find, convenient location.

The rocks are spectacular, the views are breath taking. I really enjoy my almost daily hikes here. Sometimes busier than others. The red rock formations were beautiful and the water and rocks at the end were beautiful.

I am not sure what Weatherike is. The weather changes frequently here in Colorado Springs. Easy to track on a smart phone.
