For XC skiing (not at a resort) after the snow melts elsewhere, where else can you go? Gentle trail and good for beginners. Went with a 7 year old who found it easy. It seems preferable to glide on skis instead of having to walk on snowshoes.

Nice beginning snowshoe trail. Can hear I-70, but pretend the sound is of a river running wild. FYI, park to the RIGHT of the chimney, not in front or to the left. There is a private drive way. This site isn't allowing me to show the photo and this is the 2nd time trying to write this. If it doesn't show up again, so be it. Only 2 stars for the site, for its ease of use.

Tried out the new snowshoes on this great trail on 2/7/2015 with 2 boys (11 and 8) and 2 adults. Other than the highway noise, it's a beautiful trail with a lot to offer the beginner snowshoer and cross-country skier. The boys loved the trail and the opportunity to see at least the tracks of wildlife. We only went about 1.5 miles toward Loveland Ski Area, and then turned around, but it was perfect for our first experience and we'll definitely be back with the kiddos.
