Perfect combination of views,shady areas, stream, wildlife and difficulty. Great workout. Under 5.5 miles.

definitely a workout but the trail is unshaded so you're baking under the sun, super busy with mountain bikers, joggers, horses, EVERYONE!!

Went on a Sunday and encountered lots of mountain bikers, and two groups on horseback. Very busy trail without much scenery at the top.

on Belcher Hill Trail

I came out on Monday morning looking for new turf. I did a combo of the Belcher, Whipple,.Longhorn and Short horn for a 3 hour trek. Lots of horse poo in spots and maybe 3 or 4 mountain bikes in the beginning but the rest of it I was completely alone, which is what I like. Lots of change in elevation and not the most interesting scenery until you get to the top when there are more boulders. That said, it was pretty much your basic scrub trail typical of the front range. Probably won't go back as there are more interesting places to.go. obviously from the terrain and tread wear this is a big biking spot, too.

It was extremely long and challenging. A portion of Rawhide trail was closed and I got lost because of that. It was terrifying. I would recommend any trails in this area but Rawhide trail.

Well shaded, pretty views, steady hike instead of a steep climb, long enough to get sore. Overall perfect for some Sunday morning exercise!

Fun trail for Mtn but the NE section gets super technical. I had to walk my bike for a little bit and saw other bikers doing the same. Be prepared to climb some hills too, so this is a good leg workout.

Beauty everywhere. Was just a little bit difficult for me. I'm definitely going to be sore tomorrow. Tons of flowers and not very much traffic.

Awesome trail, I do 6 miles, would like to do it more often but it's pretty desolate for a lone woman hiker, can get kinda scary way up there all alone.

Well-shaded, relatively easy hike with some nice views. I did the Rawhide Trail Loop, and have to say that the experience is a little more serene for one half of the trail, than it is for the other - If you start the loop by going to the left, the trail is essentially just a dirt road, but becomes more wooded as you progress. I did it on a Sunday afternoon and there were relatively few people on the trail.

Beautiful trail, rolling hills. Our records said 5.2 for the hike! Great morning.

Beautiful and close trail

Easy to moderate hike with beautiful long and close views. Lots of black Alberts squirrels.
