Really pleasant hike with several loops. Not too hard, not too easy!

Nice, pretty easy trail. Good for when you want to get out in the woods but aren't looking for anything strenuous.

easy, with some nice views

Well-worn path for easy hiking. beautiful area. We went on a Sunday afternoon, and although there were plenty of cars in the lot, we encountered very few people on the trail. saw a full-black Abert's squirrel and a possible marten. Many wildflowers still in bloom.

This was a pretty and fun ride but it is definitely rated wrong. I got here thinking this would be a green level ride and the exact trail shown is mostly blue with some black, we walked our bikes for a good portion of the up hill and some of the down hill because it was way too steep! Overall a good ride but I wouldn’t bike it again.

Awesome trail! I would recommend doing this backwards from what is shown on here, as the “back half” is much more fun and up and down. The “front half” on this map is very much the same, sloping downhill the entire time. The lookout point is also great. Great trail for running, biking, the lot! Should be rated more difficult than it is - the evergreen mountain trail is shorter and follows nearly the same route but is shorter, and it is rated as “hard.” This, however, is longer and somehow rated “easy.”

We are beginner bikers and this was a good trail ride for our first time here. We came late afternoon on a Sunday and there were just a handful of people walking the trail and only a few other bikers. Good number of up slopes to work ya out and downslopes for fun. Beautiful scenery and wildlife! Will definitely be back!

Really pretty hike. Not too busy even for a Sunday. Nice a shady for the longer hike. Small view once you reach the top.

The trails are well marked and beautiful scenery. This is one of my favorite trails to go on. However, I would suggest to get there early as the parking lot gets full & it’s a very popular hike.

Perfect for novice riders. Easily can finish the loop in 30-40 mins. Steady climb with some technical spots. Can get pretty busy in weekends. Downhill can get fast so beware of hikers and even horses at times.

Easy, wide trail. I only gave it three stars because there aren't views of anything on the trail, and it was super busy. It is a nice easy trail through some woods and across a small marsh. I encountered multiple groups of camp kids and counselors on bikes-at least 4 different groups of 8-12 kids. Lots of other hikers too. Way to busy for me. I was there from 11 am-12 pm, so maybe it was just bad timing.

The directions from All Trails brought me to the secondary parking area that has only a few spots. Know that there is a main parking area a little further north on Hwy 73 with lots of spots.

awesome hike allot of incline if you haven't been hiking in awhile it's definitely a workout, we did happen to find the secret path thanks to a previous picture posted once you see the angled arrow marker and downed tree look for small foot path to your left, it's a good half mile or so uphill from there but it all becomes worthwhile when you get to the top and get that gorgeous view. would definitely do it again.

Trail is close to Denver and right off 285 so it’s easy to get to. I was tired after a weekend hike so this was a perfect moderate hike. If you just do the trail as marked I would call this more an upper easy hike. If you take the “secret” trail to the top it’s moderate. Took me two loops of the Old Ski Loop trail to find the secret summit trail. It is NOT the first one you come to where to go up about 100 feet to a cluster of rocks with a partial view. I searched around there for a while. It’s above that on the marked trail (if you went left to right on the loop). I added a picture with markings. You won’t see the “no trespassing” sign someone else referenced until after you are already on the trail (and even then it’s off in the distance and you have to look for it). The trail to the summit is pretty well marked as someone has lined quite a bit of it with old tree branches. There are times you will question if you went the right way. Trust your gut...it’s a pretty intuitive trail. Don’t get fooled by the first false summit with good views. Keep going until you find the top and the geo markers and register. It’s probably less than .5 mile from the Old Ski Loop trail so it’s worth it. Someone should bring a new little notepad for the register and a new pen. Both are running low! Gorgeous views from the top and TONS of ladybugs. This will be a great trail for fall with the Aspens along it.

Nice simple trail. Good escape for cooler temperatures than Denver, but can be pretty warm too. Lots of trees trail and great for dogs.

Easy hike up Mount Muhly and recommend for everyone!

Really pretty. Found the trail to the mountain. It was tricky - top of the ski loop on the left side. It’s kind of hard to find - just a little dirt path off into the trees with some branches across the beginning. It is above the trail that goes up to the rocks - that was where I went and circled back. So beautiful!!!!!!

We started at Songbird, which is a small trail along the road, and then crossed the highway to hike Hummingbird. It’s a steady incline switchback for about 1.5 miles to the top. Honestly, the views along the way up might be better than the view at the very top. Coming down Hummingbird is a steady decent the remaining .4 miles back down to the road and trailhead. There is no shade during the hike and well maintained covered restrooms back at the trailhead.

Did this trail with our 6 year old and (hardy) 2.5 year old. The first few tenths of a mile is a great leg/butt workout, followed by lovely views and a more gentle slope down. Our big kid did the whole thing without complaining. Little sis hiked most of it on her own with some breaks on dad’s shoulders. Lots of butterflies!

Perfect for a quick 4 miles or so. Beautiful

This hike was beautiful and easy. I plan to take some visitors here in a few months! I agree with an earlier review about taking a picture of the map before starting, or taking a paper map with you on the trail to make sure you’re going in the right direction.

Very easy but heavily trafficked trail. I recommend taking a picture of the map at the trailhead. This is not really one solid loop but a combination of multiple trails. It can be a short 1 mike hike or a long 10 mike hike depending on the combination of trails chosen. Lots of bikes and trails can get quit congested. This is a great trail for families with young children.

A really sweet decent after a pretty techincal uphill. For the initial hour of climbing I had to hop off of my bike 3 times. It was a pretty hard climb but the drop is awesome and steep. Some sweet switchbacks and rock lines make this trail a good option.

Great for a hike with kids. Lots of different trails to make it longer or shorter. Very busy on a Sunday morning.

Nice way to get away from the city and have an enjoyably lazy walk on some pretty trails to get back to center.
However “lightly trafficked” is not the way to describe these trails... but I’ll definitely be back.

Peaceful and beautiful!!!

I went about 7:30am today and while the parking lot was mostly full, I only ran into a handful of other hikers. Plenty of open space and lightly wooded areas to take in. I didn’t see much wildlife but there are pockets of wildflowers growing and I was lucky enough to see some hummingbirds. Trails are clearly marked. It was a nice, easy Saturday morning hike!

Went last weekend. Easy trail - no drastic uphill climbs. Views and scenery were wonderful. Not too crowded either!

I actually bumped into this place. Decided to hike here instead of going up further because it was Memorial Day weekend. Enjoyed the beautiful trails, trees and the area! Great place to bring the family and have a bbq. Even tho you have to share the trails with mountain bikers, still a nice hike.

Great hike, nice terrain. Good amount of shade. View at the top is nothing special

I thought this trail was kind of boring, but still good to get out to a place with no snow in March, which is when we did it.
