The old Spanish trail becomes non-dog friendly about half way down the right side of the loop, had to turn back. Lots of mountain bikes going pretty fast on alpine road which made hiking with a dog on the narrow trails less than ideal. A couple of nice vistas.

Scenic views and several different trails you can hop on. Great for trail running and getting a good hill workout.

This is a nice trail with good views to the east and a good hike down to the end of Alpine Rd. Plus, dogs are allowed on leash. Winter/spring is a good time to hike Coal Creek but can be a bit muddy.
