Every other person had a dog; it was lovely! i ended up at South Vslley Park because Deer Creek Canyon was closed due to significant mud. i was suprised by the beautiful scenery. I was solo hiking, so I didn't mind that it was well trafficked today. I heard someone on the trail say that they've never seen it so busy, so I imagine future hikes won't be as crowded. it was very easy hiking, but not boring by any means. I started on coyote song, hopped over to columbine trail loop, and back to coyote song. I came back to the parking lot via swallow trail. It ended up being just a little over 5 miles.
