Tough, but the view on top is one of the best; from the top you can see the snowy Rockies, Wyoming and Horsetooth reservoir, it's beautiful.
It's important to know that 5.7 is only the loop, and doesn't include climbing up the rock for the view, the total for us was about 8 miles.

Tougher than I thought it would be. Took the meadow trail up, then climbed up to top of Grey Rock. Small pond at the top was nice for my dog to swim in. Went down the grey rock trail which was really steep, even for a decent. Perfect day for this hike as it was overcast and not too hot. Kids were at the top so anyone can do it if you just take your time.

Fun hike and challenging. The Meadow Trail is much more pleasant to climb than the other way. Watch out for poison ivy and thistle along the trail, as it is overgrown due to the moisture this year. Start early and bring a lot of water, as there isn't much shade on this trail and temps climb quickly.
