I find this to be a great trail for those who want to keep away from traffic, yet have a good workout. When I wish to walk up to ten miles, all I do is walk to the start from 9 mile sration, and go up to Yale/ Chamders, then back down to the bottom. Each time is about 3 miles when done both ways. I'll do this until it's been done 3 times each way. This keeps me away from traffic, and in the middle section, all one hears is the animals and occasionally a siren or two. But for me, it gives the workout I seek, and the miles I need. in the morning and evening, deer and occasionally a coyote is visible. I have only walked it so far, but bikes are very common. Just watch out for the high population of prairie dog's. they're very common. Hawks and other birds are also very popular during the walk.

We told the lady at the front desk we would like to hike and she gave us a map. She forgot to mention that all the trails were closed. There isn't anything to see here.

This isn't a hiking trail. It is a side walk along side a golf course as well as the paths on the course. Then along a five lane road to get back. Lame.

It is a very nice place. Lots of deer, dogs really enjoy it. Not many hikers which makes it nice to have your dog off leash.

Turn in (off Smith Road) at the Morrison Nature Center, follow the road and park by what looks like a house. It's the Nature Center and is open every day, I think, with Rangers and real rest rooms. It's a loop trail with a pond in the middle and connects to the Sand Creek Trail.

Beautiful area around the reservoir. Stay on the sidewalk to preserve the area and avoid rattlesnakes!
