I've been using Fay all winter to get in and stay in shape for Spring and Summer. It's very well maintained. I enjoy hiking during weekdays versus.weekends when it can get quite busy. Grand View Loop and Jobs Peak Ranch trails are the most challenging and well worth the effort.

I took a loop counterclockwise (and I am glad I went this way- up the hill) up to the top of grand view loop and down to Luther creek. Well marked trail. Bushes starting to bloom. Horses allowed on the trail. Dogs off the leash allowed after March 30 until November. Poop bags provided at trail head.

Took the dog out yesterday and did the Grandview loop. Great trail with some challenging slopes and amazing views. Watch out for horse poop!

Interpretive trail was a nice distraction. Next time we'll add in the Grand View loop.
