    Great trail. I hiked this trail on a day of light snow and a heavy fog that was freezing to the trees. Visibility was low at the upper elevations and clear in the canyon. Overall a good trail, will hike again when I visit.

    Great place to visit with the family. Some short, easy trails plus a quiet picnic area and longer/more difficult trails too. Also a great spot for rock climbing.

    This was an absolutely gorgeous hike that is easily accessible from the city. Because it is so beautiful and so easy to get to, it does see a lot of visitors.

    PS we hiked on the Eldorado Canyon Trail, I believe
