It's definitely an "in the city" trail. On higher elevations, when you start/end, you can see all of Stapleton and some peaks coming up from behind the city skyline. It's a nice getaway right in the middle of the city. There's a small wetland area (which does attract bugs) but it's nature!

Local spot for a late afternoon run. Great sunsets, a little buggy. Some Strava segments around the lake. Great to have some neature so close to the 'burbs.
The parking area off of M.L.K. Jr Blvd closes at sunset. As of August 2016, some construction near Havana St. closed the main 1 mi. loop around the lake.
Enjoyable, quick hike close to the Stapleton community. With so many other pet/bike friendly trails in the area, it was nice to enjoy a trail without either. Simple mile long trail with quarter mile-markers. Insect repellant is recommended.
