One of my favorite hikes. Pack a lunch, climb to the top of the fire lookout, but be prepared to smell dog poo almost the entire way up the mountain. There are no garbage cans and people are supposed to carry out all of their...More

This really gives you the lay of the land, one of the best foothill hikes. Please don't park in a way that damages the nature you have come to see, if the lot is full then park at the overflow area down the road. A...More

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

This hike is a great short hike that was a little challenging for a couple of retired novice hikers. The reward at the tower was well worth the effort. This hike is a must for all when in the Denver area.

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.
