We have done this trail many times. The goal is to hike a loop and end up in the right parking lot. Last weekend we accomplished that. We took the Morrison slide trail to the top and hiked down the other side. It is fair...More

Our son and his wife took us here for a short hike because of its easy terrain good for us “mature” adults. Good restroom facilities at the trail head and plenty of parking most days. Close to Red Rocks and Dinosaur Ridge as well.

Great place for a moderate hike. The usual loop from the parking lot around the hill that meets up with the Red Rocks trail on the west is about 5 miles round trip. It's totally doable for kids and dogs love it too. The stream...More
