dogs on leash
Loved this hike. Started from the east trailhead and did the loop which made it more like 5-6 miles. It was a steady climb but well maintained, and the mostly shaded trail were very pleasant. The many views from the top as you make the circuit around the summit are awesome. There are several places at the top to sit and enjoy a snack and take it all in. Definitely on my list to do again!
Anna B. on O'Fallon Park Upper Loop Trail
I hiked this trail on a beautiful Sunday afternoon (today) and was surprised that there were a very small number of people on it :) It was very quiet and peaceful, except for a short distance that runs along a road which isn't heavily trafficked. The only section of the trail I consider Moderate is the 1st 1/2 mile or so....It's a decent ascent, but not Hard. I consider the other 3 1/2 miles Easy and very pleasant - hard-packed dirt path with beautiful mountain views. Aspens are now slightly past peak, and wildflowers are done.
