Good little hike! It was warm but as we climbed there was much more shade! Great views of the flatirons.

This trail was alright, but the last half mile push back up to NCAR was not all that fun. Lots of snow (compared to the rest of the hike), made it hard to see the trail. Views are good, but not much better than the drive up to the trailhead. There are much better hikes in the area.

Diverted off trail due to work by Xcel Energy; instead of walking underneath NCAR, took one of the overgrown trails from Bear Canyon Trail (right of the power station) up to Two Tree Hill and onto NCAR. If we had known about the trail work, we would have gone down Two Tree Hill and up Bear Canyon to Table Mesa Trails and avoided such a steep climb at the end of the our hike.

I will definitely be back. Lots of parking at NCAR. Trail can be pretty rocky, a d muddy in areas, but overall a great shorter trail with some elivation changes.

Overall a fun hike. Some segments near NCAR a bit trafficked and narrow. Great views and good wildflowers now (June). The final half mile back up to NCAR is a pretty good climb.
