    Love this hike, we ended up walking down first and then walking up but it was beautiful and a good cardio effort.

    This is a beautiful trail, and makes a great easy hike with dogs. We went mid-week on a relatively cool day, and saw only a handful of other people on our hike. Most of the hike is level, with a couple of slightly steeper sections. It is clearly marked the whole way. Don't be thrown off by an intersection with the Founder's Trail around mile 2.7. You'll be looking for the intersection of the Meadow View Trail and the Painter's Pause Trail. Keep going past the Founder's Trail and you'll hit Painter's Pause in a few minutes.

    This is a good trail for those who enjoy a good climb to start their ride. It climbs steady for the first 4 or more miles, but the trail has been well built so traction is good. The elevation gain is substantial so it's not for the faint of heart, but all in all a good ride. Once at the peak, there's a nice little loop at the top that's fun and non-technical. The descent is less than challenging and light on the technical side but fun nonetheless.

    Great quick day hike with the dog. So close to Denver, yet you get some great views and well-marked trails to explore. Nice terrain, meadows, forest and rock outcrops. Great for trail running as well. (Hiked Castle Trail to Two Dog Trail to Tower Trail loop).

    Mt. Falcon is a great ride. If you want a challenging ride, start at the east entrance, which is just south of historic Morrison. The ride starts out with about an 800-1000ft gain over 2.5 miles. Granny gear is your friend for this stretch of the trail. If you want a little easier ride, enter Mt. Falcon on the west side, which you would get to by going 285W just a few miles past C-470. I would definitely recommend Mt. Falcon to any rider.
