Great little trail for viewing red rocks and foothills. There are some off-shoot trails as well. Easy enough for small dogs.

My first hike in Colorado was great , this trail is easy to do, though I would recommend micro spike if you worried about slipping, the snow is pretty packed down hard !

this says loop but I did an out and back?? anyways, it was beautiful! I went early morning and nobody was there. I am new so took a lot of breaks but otherwise an easy hike

Feel like an easy day? Here ya go!

giving a 3 because the pit toilets at the trail head were gross - almost overflowing, but the real toilets at the other lot made up for it.

Also, very open trail, no real tree coverage. Trail was easy.

Very relaxing trail with beautiful rock formations and vistas. The trail is almost completely exposed so a perfect walk with the dog on a sunny winter day. Don’t expect to be alone as many other hikers and dogs were also on the trail. A half a dozen deer grazed near the trailhead right at sunset, which made for a serene end to the hike.

I brought my 5 year old here to learn how to Mountain bike. It was perfect and the rock structures were pretty cool. I’ll be going back by myself to hit areas I couldn’t bring him.

Easy, beautiful views, and close to Denver!

Easy, close to the city.. Limited shade

Nice easy trail

The trail is nice, but be prepared for some slushy, muddy parts. It is very easy and absolutely gorgeous!

Nice, easy trail that has amazing views of rock formations. It would be a great trail for snow shoeing this winter.

Beautiful views and well maintained dirt path. We hiked today but this would also be a great mountain bike ride. Bonus, bathrooms available at the trailhead and they were super clean. 320 ft climb made this an enjoyable workout.

Nice peaceful place for an easy stroll. Beautiful rocks, shame there is no climbing - they’re still nice to look at. Lots of people there taking professional photos for the gorgeous backdrop.

Really unique rock formations. Coyote song is an easy trail, some inclines but nothing crazy. If you take the Lyons Back trail towards columbine trail it gets pretty steep. You can also go off path a lil and climb up to the ridge. Views were awesome, would not recommend the ridge climb to kids or anyone unsure of physical ability. Def go again, quick drive from Denver.

Nice and relatively easy, with great views and dog accessible.

Had fun, very dog friendly. Would recommend a day that's not too hot.

More of a outdoor walk than hike but really pretty. Definitely go on a cool or overcast day as there is no shade. I also recommend not taking a stroller or bikes for small kids.

Beautiful views throughout the walk. Quiet and peaceful.

Beautiful views in all directions! Gentle slope, not to tough of an incline. Love this trail!

This hike has beautiful rock formations and an easy to follow trail for my kiddos from the east coast. There were lots of dogs on the trail which was a bonus for us. Beautiful wildflowers and plants to look at. It was very hot with very little shade but there were bathrooms and water fountains at the beginning and end of the trail. I’d definitely recommend it for a short hike.

Loved this hike! Great way to acclimate to higher elevations for my vacation in Colorado. Beautiful sweeping views, pretty songbirds, clean and well maintained!

Nice trail. Wide trail, good one to take the kids. Go early, very sunny, no shade. First mile or so is a gentle up hill. Beautiful rock formations! Close to Denver. Coyote trail is not clearly marked on the return, bring a map along.

Great trail for walking.

Love this trail. The rock formations are beautiful.
