Easy to find off the highway. Good for kids and dogs. Really liked the large, off-leash dog park in the area.
Took my dog and toddler on this trip from Glendale area. We walked around the off leash area first to get our dog in the right state of mind before walking the trail.
The dog park was fun. It was fairly large and very natural. More trash bags along the trail would have been nice - carrying a full poo bag with a toddler was not very fun.
The loop was good, has some good elevation changes and allows for a nice scenic view on the northwest.
The area was really busy, but parking was still not too bad. A nice little get away, but really close to the highway which is a reminder of the daily grind. Not sure if I'd go back.
Perfect for beginning trail running and nice off leash dog space next to it
Easy hike, loved the scenery...loved it.
Great for a quick hike with beautiful views of the front range. Has a little apple orchard in the beginning. Good dog park connected to it. Slippery if there is snow or ice on the trail.
Good loop run... Great views and climbs. Watch out for snakes :o
Easy little hike/walk. Good for kids and dogs. Fun to run, although can be tricky in winter. Dog park attached to the area which also has a mini trail that you can loop around on.
Not strenuous at all. Windy & a touch muddy. Nice short hike with three kids - ages 9, 8, & 7. Brought our dog too. There's a huge dog park adjacent to trailhead, but dog must stay on leash in loop.
Not a bad little walk. Seems like it would be a great trail run. Lots of dogs around, and dog park nearby. Few horses here and there. Nice view from the top. Recommended as a sunrise or sunset hike. Very easy hike with three kids. Be advised of mud and snow during winter.
Awesome trails with panoramic views of the Front Range. Cleats advised for winter walks. Actually saw a Bald Eagle while hiking here. Beautiful Rock formations which are VERY common in this area
There is a dog park attached to this open space. The trail was very snowy and icy, but easy. Not a lot to see on the trail itself, but the views from the top are spectacular.
