I like this trail. I didn't want to conquer a mountain today, I Just wanted to be outside and meander, this is an easy trail but myself and my dogs had a good walk. Not much cover so it's pretty hot in the summer but for a fall day like today it was perfect.
Great trail for running and biking. I wish I had worn my trail runners for this one instead of my hiking boots. Great trail to get some easy miles in. I liked that it meanders along the creek, has lost of shaded areas and pit stops. I enjoyed these miles immensely; it was a really long easy walk on a beautiful Fall morning.

Great walk along the river, View of the castle. A lot of mountain bikers
We started at little bear parking lot which is the first parking lot down the hill off the road there is no signs. Hiked down along the creek past the Bears lair parking lot down past the castle and then the hike got real fun straight up once on top the views were pretty amazing for being so close to Denver. 7.5 miles around 2 1/2 hrs
