Great hike. My girlfriend and I took our two dogs with us. Had great spots throughout it to sit and chill in the shade.

The trail being shown might be correctly titled "Eagle Wind Trail" . . . at least that's how all the signs at the trailhead and along the hike refer to it.

It's ranked as easy, and only has 500, or so, feet of elevation, but it seems like all of the elevation happens in the first 200 yards of the hike. So while, I would agree that it's probably an Easy trail, be forewarned that the brunt of the exertion happens right off the bat and that might be daunting to some. But don't worry . . . I'm usually the fattest guy on any trail and even though it felt tough and I was sucking air, I still made it with relative ease. I'd say pretty much anyone except for those with real knee issues or the very extreme unfit could handle this hike.

I completed this hike with my girlfriend on Saturday, Feb. 11th and the trail was in great shape. Weather has been a little unseasonably warm lately, so there was no ice or snow, and there were only a few spots that looked like they could get muddy. I'd like to do it again in the mid/late spring when the grass is greener, as the overall color palette on the hike was the brown of winter grasslands. There are pretty good views of the areas between Longmont and Lyons, as well as what I'm assuming to be the Berthoud/Loveland area on the opposite side. Even though the views are not "spectacular" compared to other areas in Colorado, this was still a fun hike in the outdoors.

I did this hike in conjunction with the Thompson River Overlook. The trail was frozen with fresh snow and beautiful. Very ease for the miles and not a lot of elevation gain.

A snow and ice storm had just past and the area was mostly empty. Plenty of wildlife around. A very easy hike even in the conditions. I averaged over 3mph. Nice area so close to the metro.

I'd rate this hike easy, not moderate. It has nice views from afar of the continental divide and Long's Peak, but the hike itself is more of a Mesa and through scrub brush. Nothing really special, but a nice day out if all you want is an easy ramble.
