I need area to walk. Seeing all of the dogs with their owners made me want my own dog, but I enjoyed exploring this area on my own. I walked mostly around the reservoir, but was able to cut across part of the reservoir where the water had receded. It was quite a blast! At first I was walking across sand, and then I got to a long section of street mud and muck. I was barefoot in smiling the whole time! :D
In the middle of the week and before peak season, the area wasn't too busy. Just enough people to feel in touch, yet also with in my own little world. I would certainly come back here again, with higher hopes of being able to dunk my head under the waters!

Great view with plenty of room for pups to run and swim around.

Lake itself is quite lovely, and trail is convenient to Boulder and Longmont areas. Path is wide, smooth, and flat, appropriate for all ability levels and many uses. Very dog friendly - though almost felt like a dog park with so many present on a crowded Sunday afternoon.

Nice easy trail! Very dog friendly, I think I was the only one without a dog. Much better parking across the street.

love that you can let dogs get into the water

Not bad trail ... Good for dogs

Coot lake is a relaxing place to go for an easy walk. It seems like a nice place to fish or bring the dogs. Not much else for scenery but fall does bring some changing leaves. Heard lots of coyotes after dark so be mindful.

Not a loop.

Lots of nature.

Good hike/walk around the reservoir. Didn't know that you could have your dog even on leash on the swim/boating side during the summer through Labor Day. Got a lecture but allowed to continue through. All in all, about 6.2 miles all the way around.
