Fun & relatively easy trail! Also, don't miss Eden Valley Spur trail.

Nice quick run. Flat to rolling terrain, mostly open with no trees until you get to the back half. I saw one deer creeping through the trees mid-way through. The trail was well marked.

Trail surface varies from graded limestone rock to soil with some rocks. During an afternoon hike I saw a dozen mule deer lounging under trees.

Super nice beautiful easy hike.

Much of Bobcat Ridge is still treeless from a forest fire in the early 21st century. Parts of it are quite steep, but the view at the top of the ridge of the mountains to the west is breathtaking and well worth the 9 mile round trip. Very light traffic.

I enjoyed it. It's close to Loveland so I'll be doing it again.

A very beautiful & quiet trail. Only saw a handful of other people.

I’d consider this hike more of a moderate hike with some incline & switchbacks.

This trail was quite easy and we couldn't hike for as long as we wanted because our child didn't feel well, but it was relatively flat and had a gravel path for hiking. They mowed both sides of the path as well. We walked to the "cabin" which was a really cool educational opportunity. It was built in 1917 and had chairs and a table in it. My 10 year old was fascinated by how they got water, how they washed clothes, and even the farm equipment located behind the cabin. It was neat. We also loved seeing so many horses on the trail. Overall, although it was easy, it was enjoyable. There is no shade, so I suggest in the summer to make sure you have plenty of sunscreen.

Great 4 mile loop, very pretty in the early morning or evening, also less crowded. The Eden valley trai is another really lovely hike, in and out 3.5 miles.

Several different trails diverge at Bobcat Ridge, where Valley Loop Trail is located. Be sure to notice signs, or don't, depending how you like it. I started on Valley loop and eventually wandered onto Power Line Trail.

The east and west views are pretty. The trail is easy for its length. I rated it a three because there is just so much grassland.

Lots of mountain bikers, and some horses. Go early as there isn't much shade.

I want to reiterate that there are no dogs allowed on this trail. There were multiple signs and rangers patrolling this area so I wouldn't attempt it! It's very unfortunate because the views here are beautiful. But for a personal who likes to hike with my dog, I won't be gong back anytime soon.

Great for the kids! Many options to go further with different linked trails.
