Great, easy hike. Didn’t need microspikes but it was slick in a couple of spots.

Nice MTB trail. No bikes on Wednesday or Saturday. Good for trail runners too. Over 7 miles of trail in the preserve.

Overall it's a decent loop, as others have mentioned, it's primarily used by bikers.

About half the loop has some shady coverage and the creek provides a nice diversion, although during the Summer months it runs to a trickle in parts.

Can make for a fun day in conjunction with other trails in the area. I would definitely recommend Bummer's Rock for some amazing views and a fun short trek near by.

Fun for kids

Great early morning hike !!

This trail is great for hiking or mountain biking. We hiked it and I found it a very good challenge

Rocky switchbacks hike you up to the loop. long flowy wider trail with space for hikers and bikers. nice views, occasional benches

Great hike. Pretty. However, I'd lost it as easy, not moderate.

Pretty. Incredibly easy. More like a stroll in the park. Good hike for conversation and being outside.

Nice trail but narrow and heavily trafficked with mountain bikes. Go wed or sat when no bikes for hiking

Nice walk for taking the pups. Mostly mountain bikers. No spectacular views to be honest.

By far the most disappointing "hike" I've ever been on. Unless I missed most of the trail, it was a half mile tops, with mediocre views. Would not recommend.

Nice family loop. Recommend hiking against bike traffic.

Canyon Loop is a wonderful hike

Really nice rolling trail up in the mountains.

Nice, well-kept trail. Views aren't anything special. The trail is also open to mountain bikers except for Wednesdays and Saturdays (I went on a Sunday). Bikers were all very polite and safe.

Nice trail with average views. It is heavily used by mountain bikers on Sundays. If you want a peaceful hike, go on a day that doesn't allow bikes. I think it is Saturday and Wednesday. I spent the majority of the hike moving to the side of the narrow trail to let the cyclists go by. Would also not recommend for dogs on Sunday due to this reason.

Not crowded, peaceful trail. Nice drive down canyon in Boulder to get there.

Really nice loop. Not the most mesmerizing views but I like the way the trail feels.
