Awesome trail!! I mountain biked to the start of Dixon, from the Limekiln lot. On foot to Dragons Backbone. I had on mountain shoes with good tread. Didn’t need yaktrax or poles.

Trail is definitely on the easier side of moderate. We hiked on a warm January day so the trail was quite sloppy due to the melting snow, but we still saw a number of hikers and mountain bikers, so the trail is quite popular. The Blackmer Loop section of the trail was by far my favorite section. It's unfortunate that the Sundance trail is so close to the highway, but the view of Cheyenne Mountain towering over the park made it bearable.

Pretty great trail, quiet, great views but the only reason I would give it 3 stars is because of the limited space to walk dogs. I mean come on it’s 2020 why are there not more trails for dogs in this massive park.

This was just what I needed today - not very difficult but not just a walk in the park. Mostly dry today. Lots of fun rocks to step on! Very few muddy stretches but there were a few. Fair amount of ice but nothing my hiking boots couldn’t handle on their own. Finished in an hour ten minutes. Will definitely come back!

Beautiful views about 3/4 of the way through or 1/4 depending on your trail choice. Muddy, sticky, snowy slippery trails for about half of it. Very good for a beginner.

Great trail, we took our 3 year old along. All the shaded parts were icy and the trail was very muddy in spots but just made it more fun. Amazing views and spotted some deer very close to the trail. Hiked in early December.

Easy Hike

Trail conditions as of 11/17 weren't too bad with just a little iciness and snow in spots. Those areas exposed to sunlight became muddy on the decent. The Dragon's Backbone is a fun, light rock scramble with fantastic views. There are several large outcroppings adjacent to the trail that are relatively easy to climb. Since you've gone all that way, you may as well finish off the Dixon Trail (not in the original trail recording), although it basically ends abruptly at a fire road underneath the antenna farm. Horses and bikes are only allowed up the first 2.5 miles of the Dixon Trail due to the rough terrain. You can see where Dixon heads off to the NW in my recording.
