Saw rattlesnakes, nice trail. Steep inclines, not for everybody. Elevation isn't too drastic here, but you still may need to be prepared. There are plenty of rock climbers to watch. Really nice area. About 8 miles from Boulder. I wouldn't put this in my Top 10 hikes, but it was not hard to find and it is not a difficult area to hike. There are some trails there that are very easy. Views were pretty good towards the top. State Park fee was $9.00 per vehicle. Pretty cheap to have access to a bunch of trails.
