Nice and easy hike. Good water views. Definitely dog friendly. Took about 2 hours and 45 mins as we walked along the dirt road for vehicles as well as the hiking trail.

Nice well-worn dirt & rock trail running along a running creek for most of the way. Ends a southwest corner of stampede reservoir. If you have a water dog like we do...they'll love this hike!!

This is a great leisure hike with not much of an incline. Dogs are welcome, and there's a creek that is easily accessible in many parts. Parking can be a bit a bit of a challenge, but you can usually find a spot in the trees. The trail is a little narrow, so you'll have to stop on the side to let others pass. The scenery is beautiful with plenty of tree and flowers! All in all this a great hike.

Great for kids. Easy walking trail, well traveled. Saw a person try to take a wagon for a child - path is dirt and rock - so they had to take it back. Heads up, we did find a tick on one of the kids.
