Very nice hike! Kiddos, ages two and four managed it pretty well. We did the loop, 2.7 miles.

We loved this close to home trail. Did the whole thing with my dog who enjoyed it too. Wish there was water in the creek but dry time now. Take the meadowlark trail over the steeper lose rock trail on the left of trail head. Found that too slippery on the way down if walking. This hike offers a mixture of forest, and beautiful views. Started at 8:00 and had very little traffic. Took us 4 hours to do all.

Fun to trail run at times. Various options for length. The view point was somewhat disappointing. Saw a great view right on the trail. Shaded in many parts. Watch out for mountain bikers!

Went up to Bill Couch Mountain and the trail was not crowded, though that could be because I started hiking at around noon and the high was 96. With that said, there was a nice breeze and enough shade to keep somewhat cool. Knowing hiking in this area can be fairly flat, I was pleasantly surprised by the elevation gain along this route. Overall a very nice day hike relatively close to Denver!
