This campsite is located right on top of the mountain behind our home. The hike is moderate difficultly, about a mile each way from your parking space. It's an excellent beginner's backpacking trip! The view from the top is incredible—with a glimpse of Horsetooth Rock like you can't see from anywhere else. You can even see Pike's Peak on a clear day—about 120 miles away!

It was perfect! The trail up to the meadow was well-marked and easy to follow. The distance and campsite were as advertised. The solitude of the private land was perfect and there were a billion stars.

Robyn’s property is beautiful! Her husband greeted us at the gate and Robyn welcomed us once we made it to their place. They were very very kind! The hike up to the campsite was beautiful and definitely challenging at some points. Only a mile though, so not too bad, and definitely worth it! It was peaceful at the top and felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. I definitely recommend camping here and I will for sure be back!

The Canyon Vista campsite is an excellent place for a secluded stay on the front range. The location and views are wonderful, you can get a piece of feeling off grid without going deep into the mountains.

Hiking up the .9 mile well marked trail to the top of the hill was fun. The view from the top is awesome and the way the haze and sun was setting made it look super unique when we were there. The site on the top of the hill had a good view and trees to break any wind that may have been there. The hosts are super friendly and seem to want to help kids and adults explore the outdoors.
