I went on short 30 minute hike by myself to take pictures and get some air. The trail goes through the cow pastures which is fun. Great spot

Traveled through this area mostly by car, as I am a senior citizen w/ arthritis. Did get out and stretch a bit and the trail was smooth, and clean as a whistle. Beautiful views.

This place is awesome in every way. I was very impressed with these majestic rocks and wish it would have been warmer. 23 degrees and wind made for a cold and short visit.

The hike was challenging due to elevation and just from walking up hill for such a long time, from Texas so elevation was a bit more challenging. Beautiful hike and so glad we got to experience it on a beautiful sunny day.

This is a beautiful setting, and a wonderful place to hike and picnic. If you prefer an open meadow, there's a beautiful place right at the park entry, with a spectacular view of the flatirons, and you'll feel like you're a million miles from civilization....More

I’m not certain as I’ve only been there once but I don’t see why not! I did it in 90 degree weather so a little cooler would be nice!

The best thing to do is make it an easy hike- there is a kind of “rock garden” area on the plateau by the NCAR building. It’s flat and there are trees and lots of rocks to climb on for about 1/4 mile. Your toddler can have... More
