The trail was not very clear in some spots and we ended up in someone’s backyard!

The hike really was beautiful and not too difficult at all. The views are best once you hit the big open prairie area, I didn't take much interest in the remainder of the hike. I didn't find it to be out and back, there were many other connections to bring it around as a loop. I'm not sure why, but the app took me to the ice rink parking lot as the start- there are several trails that start from there but THIS IS NOT ONE. I started near the intersection of Mt Baldy Road and Boreas Pass Road. There are lots of trails near here, well marked too. I actually hiked from downtown and it was ~30-40 minutes to the start of the trail. A decent amount of mountain bikers use the trail. I didn't notice traffic noise at all like the other review mentioned

It was ok. Most interesting thing was the log poles. You can hear lots of traffic.

Nice hike at the edge of town. Little use with only one other person encountered.

We started at the Carter Park trailhead in town. It's a pleasant 4.8 mile round trip, and a good hike to acclimate to the altitude. Beautiful today on a warm afternoon after a light snow. It's a popular trail - Watch out for mountain bikes.
