best hike ive done hands down. i wouldnt say this entire hike is difficult just more towards the timberline falls. every element along the hike snow, falls, lakes, dense forest and a real prize at the end. highly recommend you get there early to get a good parking spot and to beat some of the tourist and stragglers.

It was nice, but narrow at points where it was uncomfortable walking two abreast. Brought my wife, 6, 5, and 3 year olds and it was just the right length and difficulty.

First mile is where all the elevation is, about 1,000 ft almost right from the start with loose gravel slopes that can be precarious in areas. At the 1 mile mark great views of Monument and North Colorado Springs.

The spectacular views of Red Rocks and Denver is reason for the trails high rating and highly recommended. The trail doesn't have much easy strolling, but I guess that is expected with 2000' gain in a couple miles. The short scramble near the top is not difficult, with plenty of hand holds but maybe not a great idea with small children.

St. Louis Lake

This was a great hike and I am really glad that I went on it. The end is really nice lake. Also, the gate for the road is now closed which makes this hike around 14 miles based on signs but I wasn't sure about this. The first part is on a road that follows St. Louis Creek. This is standard road hiking and not too bad. Almost to the trailhead, the road is washed out. To cross it, I had to wade across it (about up to my knees). The trail gets much steeper and has some nice views such as a meadow and the flowing river. The end destination is worth it and is a pristine mountain lake right around tree line.

Good workout with a decent incline. Not an easy climb, especially for flat landers. Take the Turkey Trot detour for a more moderate trail with some shade. TT meets up with Castle Trail so you can descend from there or stay at it to the top.
