Great moderate level hike, scrambling at parts and of course, awesome views of Boulder and beyond. For a Wednesday late morning/early afternoon, it is very busy. TONS of owners with unleash dogs. It's a shame really, such natural beauty is marred by horrific amounts of dog wastes (bagged and unbagged" along the trail. Otherwise, it's a worthwhile hike.

Bear peak is what my girlfriend and I refer to when we think of a trail that was too difficult for us. We're working back up to it, it was absolutely beautiful though. Definitely a challenge worth tackling.

After a recommendation by our friend Debra VanWinegarden (see her blogspot) we enjoyed shoulder high wildflowers and gorgeous views. Our time was short so we only hiked to the "bus stop" log and after a quick snack got back to our car just in time before an afternoon storm.

Awesome hike, perfect lake. Terrible parking had to circle for half an hour for a spot. I would say it's worth it for sure

on Cherry Creek Spillway Tra...

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.
