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.

Half of the trail can be considered as a hiking trail, but the rest was more like a running trail including asfalt. I ended up running half of the time. It was sort of boring but nice view by the lake.

Beautiful walk, especially before the sunset. Around dusk you will see a lot of deer in the fields grazing.
The red rocks are stunning.
It does get busy, but it is still close to the metro.
Good for walking, running, biking

Nice stroll through open space. Lots of birds and beautiful rock formations. Gentle

This trail is our daily walk after dinner. Close to home with beautiful valley views. Wildflowers are sparse however birds are plentiful. We enjoy the temperature changes throughout the walk.

Easy hike.
