Nice trail with average views. It is heavily used by mountain bikers on Sundays. If you want a peaceful hike, go on a day that doesn't allow bikes. I think it is Saturday and Wednesday. I spent the majority of the hike moving to the side of the narrow trail to let the cyclists go by. Would also not recommend for dogs on Sunday due to this reason.

Not crowded, peaceful trail. Nice drive down canyon in Boulder to get there.

Really nice loop. Not the most mesmerizing views but I like the way the trail feels.

Beautiful park with a couple different loops/trails to adjust your distance. I hiked a little over 9 miles total that day. Saw a few groups of hikers and many mountain bikers. Would recommend hiking on the days that they don't allow biking (I think Wednesday and Saturday). Easy to find TH and plenty of parking in 2 different lots.

Great hike to get you going after the winter. There is no lake though, as this app. suggests. Still, wonderful views.

Nice rolls up and down. Liked the silence and the view. Moderately intense.

Great views and walk!

I really like this trail. You can do a couple loops but I generally do the 3.2 mile easy - moderate one. There are some great views, pretty benches to relax on if you need it and lots of flowers and wildlife. Also, there are some fun older structures down the hill to check out if you're up for the climb back up. I agree I like going better when bikers and horses aren't sharing the trail but, in general, everyone fits on the trail and tries to make it work for all.

I rode my hardtail. While it was a bumpy it was still really fun.

Really nice! The mountain bikers can come flying, but they're generally polite

This was a great trail for a beginner like me! Beautiful throughout and hardly any traffic. Mostly mountain bikers. I will return! Great place close to Denver!
