Visited Colorado with my fiance while she had a work conference. I took a day to do some hiking while she was regrettably stuck in meetings all day. A quick Google search yielded that this trail was not too long and had amazing views. Considering...More

This was one of the mosr fun, moderate hikes we have done in a long time. Nice to get awaw from the chaos of parking and lines for everything in RMNP.

The elevation gain is about 1000 feet in just two miles, so it is a fairly steep hike with some rock scrambling at the end. But the views are great...360 from the top, and almost the much just below the rock scrambling part. There are...More

This is an off-the-beaten path hike that is a good option when the national park is busy. We hiked to Kruger Rock on a Sunday and saw very few other hikers. Be forewarned, the hike is rather steep. The views of the Estes Valley and...More

We did this with an 8 year old 2 greyhounds and a whippet. It was a little tough for the two greyhounds but everyone else enjoyed it and it was a good physical activity with great views up top.

A very well maintained trail that can be enjoyed even if you do not do the last scramble up to the top. There are fine views along the way, intermittent shade all along the trail, good spots to have a picnic lunch with a view.

I certainly would not do it at night but then I wouldn't hike anywhere in the dark. It is not a difficult trail but still it would not be something I would recommend to do in the dark.
