Nice snowy day with light flakes. About 3 inches powder. Some icy sports. Hike up grouse them up mule to rock outcropping. Heard the highway noise a bit the whole way. Just saw 5 people and a few nice dogs. Beautiful snowy day hike. About 4 miles up and back.

Completed this trail with "Blue Grouse and Mule Deer Loop". Beautiful short trail. Lost a car remote while I was hiking, if found, please bring it to the visitor center. Thank you! 10/13/2019 #51

Decent fall colors now. Hike is uphill. It connects to another loop that goes 9.1 miles. A beautiful hike. We got there about 9:30 and it was nice and cool. It did warm up as well. Can bring dogs which is a plus.

An easy trail that the kids really enjoyed. This was the first stop of our Colorado trip.

Loved this hike. We decided to go onto the Mule Deer Trail afterward, and that ended up being remarkable. It snowed and made the views even more stunning. I'd honestly say it made it even more gorgeous. It wasn't strenuous at all, the trail was well marked and not terribly uphill.

It was a fun little hike on Christmas day. 2-3"snow all along. It ends in Mule Deer trail, which is closed on the right side (climbing up) in about 100 yards It was windy, cold and snowing throughout. We started hike at about 2:30 pm
