I take out of town visitors here for an easy hike amid the aspens and evergreens. It's always beautiful.
Nice trail with lots of shade. Close to highway so a fair amount of traffic noise, but pretty wildflowers and great trail for kids.
My husband and I took our mountain bikes clockwise around the loop which made it a steep walk/cycle up with a longer and slightly less technical downhill gradient. However if you prefer a more difficult downhill with more switchbacks, I'd go anti-clockwise. Overall though it was a fun reasonably short trail through some beautiful forest.
Easy day hike, not terribly memorable.
This hike was slippery in the snow. Be sure you have some hiking poles. It was lovely scenery, and lots of shade. It'd be nice in the summer. Kids and dogs would love this trail!
Great hike up Owl Trail to Lodgepole Loop to Sunny Aspen Trail to Old Ski Run Trail and down back again. I'm an out-of-shape novice, and it took me about 1 1/2 hours to get up to the top and 1 hr to get back down. The climb up (ca. 900 ft. elevation gain) was fairly steady - there weren't any super-steep sections. The trail was well-marked, well maintained and mostly shaded by tall trees (all except the Owl Trail section. I was there early in the morning, and on a weekday, so the traffic on the trail was fairly light. Great hike for a summer morning (before it gets too hot!).
