The trail is nice, but be prepared for some slushy, muddy parts. It is very easy and absolutely gorgeous!

Nice wide beginner hiking trail with a few steep area but nothing to drastic. There are benches along the way so you can take a breather if the trail gets you a bit winded. Today was a perfect day with clear blue skies but the at the Overlook the wind did have a slight bite. The snow capped mountains in the distance were amazing to view. Would like to do this trail again in the spring to see the wildflowers.

This is Colorado trail running at its finest for me, in the mountains but not steep, a place where 4 miles feels like you barely started.

Nice, easy trail that has amazing views of rock formations. It would be a great trail for snow shoeing this winter.

Beautiful views and well maintained dirt path. We hiked today but this would also be a great mountain bike ride. Bonus, bathrooms available at the trailhead and they were super clean. 320 ft climb made this an enjoyable workout.

Nice peaceful place for an easy stroll. Beautiful rocks, shame there is no climbing - they’re still nice to look at. Lots of people there taking professional photos for the gorgeous backdrop.

Really unique rock formations. Coyote song is an easy trail, some inclines but nothing crazy. If you take the Lyons Back trail towards columbine trail it gets pretty steep. You can also go off path a lil and climb up to the ridge. Views were awesome, would not recommend the ridge climb to kids or anyone unsure of physical ability. Def go again, quick drive from Denver.

Nice and relatively easy, with great views and dog accessible.

Nice walk - no shade. Beautiful view of front range. Keep dogs on leash- they do fine you if you don’t.

Had fun, very dog friendly. Would recommend a day that's not too hot.

More of a outdoor walk than hike but really pretty. Definitely go on a cool or overcast day as there is no shade. I also recommend not taking a stroller or bikes for small kids.

Beautiful views throughout the walk. Quiet and peaceful.

Beautiful views in all directions! Gentle slope, not to tough of an incline. Love this trail!

This hike has beautiful rock formations and an easy to follow trail for my kiddos from the east coast. There were lots of dogs on the trail which was a bonus for us. Beautiful wildflowers and plants to look at. It was very hot with very little shade but there were bathrooms and water fountains at the beginning and end of the trail. I’d definitely recommend it for a short hike.

Loved this hike! Great way to acclimate to higher elevations for my vacation in Colorado. Beautiful sweeping views, pretty songbirds, clean and well maintained!

Nice trail. Wide trail, good one to take the kids. Go early, very sunny, no shade. First mile or so is a gentle up hill. Beautiful rock formations! Close to Denver. Coyote trail is not clearly marked on the return, bring a map along.

This is a nice trail for a run or for an easy-going walk. There are a few rolling hills, but it doesn't have anything too strenuous. True to its name, Coal Creek meanders near much of the trail, which is nice plus. The Louisville section has a decent amount of shade, but once you get to the prairies in Lafayette towards Erie it is pretty exposed. The prairie dog field is fun to run through, though. Really nice view of the Flatirons in Aquarius open space going west towards Louisville. Overall, I wouldn't go out of my way for this trail, but it is nice for those who live nearby.

Easy hike with great scenery and only 30 minutes from Denver. Went on a Saturday morning and lot was almost full by 9am so get there early on the weekends.

Decent tail steep in a few places, wildflowers were just starting to bloom. Alot of people heading up, I took it slow and easy. Saw some several deer, and an Osprey in flight.
