I would not consider this trail as moderate, but rather easy. Lots of shade and even so the map looks a bit confusing with all the different trails, as long as you have a copy of the map it is really easy. It was my first trip to Evergreen and I had some issues finding parking. The locals do not want you to be near them parking...next time I will try the higher parking area by the Barn. The first parking lot one was packed.

After hiking Maxwell Falls trail, Three Sisters was a nice change of pace. Beautiful views, great terrain & awesome boulders. Overall, nice hike & not too far from Denver.

Colorado Mountain Club choose this trail for our first wilderness trekking check hike. Nice variety of terrain and bouldering opportunities. Great views to use our new compasses.

This will be one of my favorite parks because trails have a nice variety. A good training ground for more difficult trails. Great view from the top of the three sisters. On our way up to the Brother, a storm moved in that caused us to stop for the day. We'll certainly go back and get an earlier start.

Only took like 2 hours to get to Three Sisters. Was a nice hike for a few hours. Not too many people.

What shines at Three Sisters is the variety - a great place to take the whole family. Lots of easy intersecting trails, some benches, and places for the kids to climb and scramble offer something for everyone. For the amount of traffic this place gets (always crowded), surprisingly clean.

If you're into bouldering, you've already been here or you're missing out. Lots of 'em, V0-V13 I think. And a few easy climbs/scrambles around the Three Sisters offer up great views.

Took about 2 hours to head up to the Three Sisters from the East Parking Lot and then loop back around (2.6 miles total). Pretty cool rock formations at the top, and there was only a little bit of snow/ice, which made climbing up onto some of the formations fairly easy. Be careful on Ranch View...deep snow that isn't really packed down. Wanted to get up to Evergreen Mountain to see the Divide, but started too late in the day.

Great trail. I did the complete outer loop. Based on the park map, it was only about 8.5 miles. Got a little busy with mountain bikers later in the day, but not more than I expected.
