You simply forget how beautiful this hike is. And it’s so convenient to denver with no I70 traffic. Count on 2-3 hours round trip.

It takes about 9 miles on a dirt road to get here but it is well worth it! It's a very steep hike to the top but if you pace yourself and drink lots of water you will be fine. Lots of shaded areas, but...More

Just finished the hike today - definitely not stroller friendly. Lots of steep switchbacks (not very flat) with rocks and other objects to step over.

The trail was open last week and I believe will stay open until Rampart Range closes Dec 1, but I don't think the fire tower at the top is open after mid September.
