I've hiked this trail three times in the last two weeks. Wear long sleeves and pants; many parts of the trail are overgrown and you will go through shrubs. Make sure to pay attention to trail markers. If you enjoy being closer to nature this is a wonderful hike.
Good trail once we found it. We got onto the dry creek bed and that was tough going. Being stubborn, we stuck to that for a mile before we turned around. The actual trail is narrow and has periodic markings, such as orange flags and wooden information kiosk/sign.
No dogs allowed but it was still a decent trail. Parts of the trail are flat and there is not much to it. It's a thin trail and the grass is over grown so make sure to wear pants. Once you get into the trail it is gorgeous. The views are definitely worth it.
This is a really great trail/nature preserve. I don't know why it only has 3 stars, other than no dogs. The trail is very well maintained and abundant wildlife. It's very flat and easy, great for the whole family. We somehow managed to miss the loop trail, and ended up going up into the canyon a bit. But it was a fun adventure and still a great hike. Only downside is it is a little noisy from Fort Carson and the highway. But all in all, a really great morning hike.
Nice, short, easy trail. Plenty of good scenery and informative display signs. I'm glad I wore my backpacking boots, as I have one bad ankle, and there are many rocks on which to roll an ankle. I was in shorts, but you may want pants, as there is a lot of grass and some scrub oak to brush your legs. Nice, quick, easy trail.
This is an easy 4 mile loop with great 360 views from the overlook. The trail is little traveled, & has nice red rocks as well as plentiful vegetation & wildlife. With enough winter moisture, the spring wildflowers are abundant in the meadow areas.
