The trailhead is posted and takes off north from a right-of-way through private property--be sure to securely close the gates you pass through and stay on the trail.

Looks like it would have been a great trail, but it's currently CLOSED for repair until fall! We took the trails across the street on Green Mountain and they were enjoyable!

A decent trail. The views are great from what you see though the trees and a good view of Boulder. Starting from the east side of the trail is much better as the west side is very steep for almost a quarter of the way. good for bike riders

Pretty trail for a nice outing. Goes downhill steep at places. If you decide to do the loop back, which I recommend, it is very gradual uphill incline. Plenty more spots to stop and take pictures. Not a busy trail during the week. We only ran into a few people on the way back. A Boulder Parks and Rec woman said that just the day before when she was up there was a good 50 people on the trail.

A little underwhelming. All easy hikes, beautiful view of Boulder and some mountain ranges.

Took some friends who were visiting here for a mild hike. We actually saw a Moose, of all places!

This trail is BEAUTIFUL and really easy to hike. Once you start descending steeply though, I wouldn't go any further. You go down deep into a valley, and then the trail ends, and you have to turn left and take a trail that is used for mountain biking back up. All in all, not sure why it's classified as a loop trail. Would definitely recommend the first part though!
