Nice hike close to town. Good for trail running or just a nice easy hike.

You can view some prairie dogs, rocks, and grass along the trip. The view of Loveland is solid, and once you get to the top there's a good view of the Rockies. We were able to see some damage from the fire which was interesting as well.

All in all, I prefer to hike through wooded areas with more foliage and will look for other trails. There was some small consistent incline, so if I lived closer I would probably go back occasionally to do a nice quick work out walk.

This would be a cool place to watch the sunrise, with no trees you can see forever. The view at the top was cool. Pay attention, there are a lot of mountain bikers and runners.

About 7 miles round trip if you continue onto rim rock. Not much shade so it's a good one for a cloudy day. Birds and prairie dogs. Good option if you want to stay local.

Took this trail in May. Saw my first rattlesnake which was pretty cool. Rocky and warm.
