Great trail for families! No dogs. Picnic tables. Beautiful view of fossil creek reservoir and the front range.

Short and sweet....

One part of the trail had some stink around it. I wonder if this is just a seasonal smell or if it's always foul through that area...... Great views of the mountains especially with the reflection on the lake.

Bugs were abundant but not a nuisance.
