Not marked at all. Kept wandering into private property and the last half is just a road. Not great.

This is one of my favorite hikes close to Denver. It's located between both upper and lower Maxwell Falls THs, but I'm also referring to "Cub Creek Trail" not the loop. Good amount of parking, usually not many people, somewhat leads in to the national forest area. You're supposed to have dogs on the leash, but it's not very crowded so you can let them off occasionally but be respectful and aware aka don't ruin this for other people.

Pros: Good hiking with good elevation gain and loss, eventually hits the creek about 3.5 or so miles in, good parking, never very crowded besides location, can find antlers in the right time of year

Cons: Close to some residential areas, comes very close to private property, some disrespectful dog owners (don't clean up, don't know when to leash their dog, etc.)
