Easy rehab hike. Haven’t checked this trail out til today. It was closed during the calving season and so I did Mud Lake.
No snow/mud. One short icy section.

Super late fall hike. In the 50s and was pleased to find that the majority of the hike was protected from the wind which was heard gusting in the vales.

Only had one glimpse of the Back Range and that was of Old Baldy. Better views on the Mud Lake hike.

The ruins of the Bluebird Mine and the DeLonde Homestead were quite interesting.

Managed to stretch it to 5.8mi.

Beautiful hike, some washed away areas near end and the connector and bridge at 2.4 miles are gone...

Great hike, good work out and not a lot of traffic. Perfect for dogs!

Loved it when I for the first time ! Planning another hike soon !

Lovely trail follows a creek through varied forests. The first 2/3 of the trail are easy and rolling, and then there is a steep climb to get up to the rocky outcrops at the top. Nice views up top, so keep going! Note: the trail along the creek offers plenty of shade.

Great hike. Gentle elevation gain. Not too crowded but be aware the parking lot is small so you may have to wait for a space. $5 day use fee (unless your car is registered in Boulder County).

Easy hike with small children. A little snow and mud, but avoidable.
Short drive to the Carousel of Happinesses after.
