This was a challenge for me as a beginner but the scenery kept me distracted from the uphill battle. I've done several trails near to Denver and I'd say this is the most diverse closer to town, that will give you an incredible work out. Enchanted forest is beautiful and quiet. I sampled the wild raspberries at the end... a nice treat.

Another great trail close to town. Some good cardio / up hill. Not a lot in the way of scenery, but a good escape into the forest.
