Lake itself is quite lovely, and trail is convenient to Boulder and Longmont areas. Path is wide, smooth, and flat, appropriate for all ability levels and many uses. Very dog friendly - though almost felt like a dog park with so many present on a crowded Sunday afternoon.

Nice easy trail! Very dog friendly, I think I was the only one without a dog. Much better parking across the street.

I'd rate this hike easy, not moderate. It has nice views from afar of the continental divide and Long's Peak, but the hike itself is more of a Mesa and through scrub brush. Nothing really special, but a nice day out if all you want is an easy ramble.

a nice easy trail that didn't take more than an hour and half or so. We took some random unmarked trail just off the loop. The views were great and the landscape was very interesting!! We saw part of the teepee circles it was pretty awesome to take a step back in time! Will surely go again if ever in the area!

lots of easy uphill with well maintained trails. hiked it with 5 kids

Nice walk. Be prepared for no shade. Early morning is best. Lots of rocks on trail so have good shoes.

Really great trail for a walk. Not so much of a hike. Great place to walk close to town. Great views and love that is has both lake and mountain views. Perfect for a quick evening walk or nice Saturday morning stroll.

This is a great paved trail for biking or walking next to the St Vrain River. It obtained extensive damage during the floods but it's almost completely repaired. The last couple of miles are still not open. I like riding there when Im not looking for anything strenuous.

Dogs are allowed there. Perhaps not off leash??

Overall, fairly ordinary small-reservoir trail. Smooth and flat; the trail is likely best for locals looking to stretch their legs or for families with children (incl. sport strollers). Enjoyed the views of the foothills and the calm, quiet atmosphere. Did not enjoy having to watch for Prairie dog holes on the otherwise smooth trail, or the smell when downwind of the water. (Yuck.)
