A nice walk with the recent weather we've been having. We stopped for a long chat with some prairie dogs on the way.

Nice and easy hike. A couple of very small beaches along the lake. Family friendly, popular trail.

Really nice flat loop through the open prairie of the wildlife arsenal. Saw a beautiful rainbow and sunset, lots of deer and birds to be seen as well.

Really nice walking trail around the lake and through the marshes almost at water level. Saw bison, deer, rabbits, prairie dogs, owl, herons, egrets, woodpeckers, and lots more.

Nice walking trail around lakes, marsh, and open prairie. Super quiet in the evening. Saw bison, great horned owl, great blue heron, cormorants, deer, prairie dogs and more!!

Trail head not clearly marked, also lack of signs within refugee to find parking. Multiple road closures not helpful to start. That being said the Lake is beautiful!

Flat, pretty, plenty of wildlife for so close to the city - a few bison, a ferret in the display area, waterfowl that aren't native to the area, and dozens of chirruping prairie dogs. They area is currently in a controlled burn program, so many of the fields are black, one still smoking, and a few where the green sprouts are pushing up past the char ... very striking. No pets! When I walked it on Saturday just after noon, there were few other hikers, so I'm not sure about the "heavily trafficked" description. There are quite a variety of trails, so you can do a very short or a very long hike. I hiked the outer loop and then went off trail and made a two hour hike of it.

NO DOGS!! It's posted... arguably in plain view. Ignorance almost got us.

Nothing spectacular, but the proximity to Denver is appealing when we don't have enough time to drive up to the mountains, or for a snow-free spot during much of the winter. The chance to see bison is a nice perk of the Arsenal, too!
