Pretty Trail. Simple & easy walk with water views. A little bit of car noise.

Changing colors of the aspens, mainly yellows, made the scenery worthwhile on this hike. Hiked around the lake then took the loops back into the park. There are prospector mine pits all over the site. There was one in particular that was fenced off and pretty deep down past the roots of two large aspens.

Very easy trail, quiet, not a lot of traffic

Nice trail run with easy dirt single track. Trail is mostly shaded with some wildflowers (mostly fleabane, yarrow, wild roses, & thistles) . Mud Lake is prettier than it sounds.

Easy little walk in the woods. Mostly shaded. Water source if you take the spur that goes to the other open space. Lots of wildflowers.

A great hike for the kids. A very easy and well marked trail. Plenty of cover, and some nice views. It is all smooth single track, with very little elevation gain. There are maps at the parking lot.

Great easy hike with lots of beautiful flowers! Very kid friendly with lots of trees!

Beautiful wildflowers on an easy trail. So easy that we did the loop twice. Fragrant forest and beautiful views.

Love the pond after a storm and just at dusk.

I would say easy, versus moderate, after all, 12 month old babes were riding their bikes. But perfect little hike when you want to be in the trees and see a lake and not have to break a sweat. My puppy loved it.

Easy and relaxing walking with a 2 year old who likes to walk on her own.

Nice trails for easy hike / snow shoeing. Saw a mother moose with her calf.

I did this Trail a couple weeks ago and there wasn’t enough snow. Ended up using my micro spikes instead. It’d be a really nice easy trail had there been more snow!

Pleasant, mellow trail. Not at all challenging but nice if you’re looking for an easy stroll through the woods.

This is a fun place if you want an uber-easy mtn bike ride. No fishing allowed, so the shoreline is cleaner than a lot of other places. This place isn't spectacular but it's sweet and a great picnic spot.

Easy in and out. On 10/28/17 we saw a family group of moose 50 feet off the trail. Scary, but awesome once it was over.

Nice walk...not too far out of Denver

Nice walk...no too far out of Denver

Beautiful easy trail around a small lake.

Spotted my first ever moose on this trail, which was a total treat - and that's why I give this trail 5 stars (otherwise I prefer the more difficult routes)...she was about 30 yards away, and if hadn't been looking, I would have missed her. I only stopped long enough to snap a photo (they can be aggressive, right?), and she kept her eyes on me but didn't budge.

Pleasant walk just a few minutes drive from Nederland. Picnicking is popular around Mud Lake. Very flat and easy walk through the trees and around the lake. Pick up Caribou Ranch Link to continue over to Caribou Ranch Open Space (no dogs allowed there).
