Nice & Easy, but we should have done elbow trail first as it was slushy for the second half

A pleasant walk in the woods with some modest views.

The trailhead here has recently been improved with increased parking, signage and an outhouse.

Trail route is slightly modified as well between the trailhead and the Fullerton Loop junction as the trail no longer dips down to the Elbow River to join the 'pre-flood' route. No route finding issues and it avoids the area that was usually extremely icy in winter and spring.

Great hike. Good trail. Nice views. A few muddy spots but nothing too bad. Would do this trail again.

This hike was a pleasant surprise - wide open trails, plenty of scenery, very pretty setting and then some decent elevation half way thru the hike. Definitely want to do this one counterclockwise. I would do this hike again and again - great early spring hike!

I have been here countless times. if you do not leave the picnic area then you will never like this site. but if you walk east from the parking lot and pass under the overpass and head north you can get some pretty nice hiking. if you stick the the picnic area 1 star windy and overcrowded.
