Easy trail for kiddos. Lots of airplanes overhead if your kid likes that kind of thing. We didn’t see any wildlife. No shade or places to stop and rest.

Great for bird watching and a quiet walk. No dogs, bikes, or jogging is allowed (as with all trails in the refuge) . Definitely a hike to help even out your tan lines. Lol

Nice view of the mountains, might be better walk in spring with wild flowers. Saw a bunch of deer and a bison. But it's a nice quiet walk.

Only had a couple of hours to kill before leaving for airport so this was the closest thing. Not too bad and easy walk. Lots of mule deer around and good view of the mountains.

It is a flat grassland without much to look at.

Really nice flat loop through the open prairie of the wildlife arsenal. Saw a beautiful rainbow and sunset, lots of deer and birds to be seen as well.

First to Review

Had trail all to myself the Friday afternoon I hiked it in early April. Thre aren't necessarily scenic views by Colorado standards but there is plenty of wildlife on this short, easy hike. Saw whitetail deer, mule deer, prairie dogs, plenty of cottontails, and even a rattlesnake.
