I rode my mtn bike. It was a bit boring for riding but great for hiking and taking the dogs for a nice outing.

I rated the Coyote Song Trail my bad. I love this trail.

Lots of fun with other dogs! Always a water hole for the dogs to play in when the temperature is up.

Great hike, difficult to find... go under the pipes and it's almost straight uphill a little to the left. Make sure you take that path back too.. otherwise you won't be able to get back to the trail. It was a little difficult but the views were worth it. Hope to do it again sometime

Hard time finding the trail (directly under pipes on the right behind the construction fence). Saw many big horn sheep on opposite hillside. Well marked trail. Only saw two other hikers. October is a great time to go. Good views of metro Denver.

This place is a doggie paradise

Great dog park and walk! It's completely fenced and has a great pond for dogs swimming.

This is a flat, easy, wide trail that follows a river. We watched a massive herd of big horn sheep walk down into the canyon to drink from the river right in front of us! We started at about 9 am and saw very few people on the trail on our way out. When we turned around to head back about two hours later we were greeted by quite a few people beginning their hike. All in all the road is wide so the high traffic wasn't a problem, and the wildlife watching was great. It's not strenuous at all. Good hike for families with young children or multiple generations.
