Great steady hike!

One of my favorite after work hikes. Challenging enough to make me feel like i worked out but not too challenging to kill my legs. Great, well marked trail.

Great hike, beautiful views on the city for part of the hike and of the surrounding mountains for the other part. First hike I've done in Colorado so can't compare to other area hikes but as far as hikes go in general it was a good one. Not too strenuous, easy to get to, a mix of paths and rock stairs, there were a handful of joggers on the cedar part of the trail but mount Galbraith loop was pretty quiet. Encountered a herd of bighorn sheep on the loop which was pretty cool to see.

Nice 2 hour hike. Clear trail, no snow or ice. A lot more traffic closer to the trailhead, got busier as the day got later. But wasn't too terribly busy for most of the hike.

This is my usual go to in the summer for a quick hike but the back end of the trail once you reach the top is not well marked at all- so be careful if you are not doing the reverse full loop. Ice/snow were super minimal... I had reg hiking boots and my pup and didn't have issues. There are a few patches and mud, but that's the usual so bring poles if you need more support. But people.. please clean up after your dogs, it was pretty sad to see some are not.
