First time here, what a great hike! Still some icy spots in the shaded areas of the less traveled trails. Pretty muddy in spots due to snow melt but nothing terrible. Can't wait to get back and try some of the other trails in the area!

easily my favorite trail in the area. camping spots for reservation (not to say I didn't stay a night with out a reservation) many different trails leading all over and all of them intersecting at some point I have not been on all of them either. Beautiful area and quiet after about a mile or two.

definitely a workout but the trail is unshaded so you're baking under the sun, super busy with mountain bikers, joggers, horses, EVERYONE!!

Went on a Sunday and encountered lots of mountain bikers, and two groups on horseback. Very busy trail without much scenery at the top.

I came out on Monday morning looking for new turf. I did a combo of the Belcher, Whipple,.Longhorn and Short horn for a 3 hour trek. Lots of horse poo in spots and maybe 3 or 4 mountain bikes in the beginning but the rest of it I was completely alone, which is what I like. Lots of change in elevation and not the most interesting scenery until you get to the top when there are more boulders. That said, it was pretty much your basic scrub trail typical of the front range. Probably won't go back as there are more interesting places to.go. obviously from the terrain and tread wear this is a big biking spot, too.
