A pretty trail with just enough elevation gain to make it burn a little bit. Large amount of mountain bikers on the weekend. Keep your eye out for the waterfall and pool in the winter/spring.

The last half of this hike is the wide and often dusty Brandon trail. On busy days mountain bikers come careening around corners — be prepared. It’s an interesting loop and I’m happy somebody put it together but I do feel that there are probably more creative and better loops for hiking this section of the park.

We started at the Skyline Trail, followed the Columbine Trail, Quail Trail, Brandon Trail, and finally hiked back to the Skyline Trail. Total distance was 8.4 miles with elevation gain 1,155'. Total time was about three hours. It was a good hike.
