Earth Day! Two 9 year old boys, one lazier than the other, hiked bootleg-coyote-mule-barn- bootleg. We started around 10 am, stopped for 2 picnics and ended at 2:45.

We had fun, likely will not return until fall to this trail. The meadows are filed with aspen and that will be gorgeous in October.

We did Coyote to Mule Deer and back to Bootleg Trail Head which makes for a nice 7 mile loop. The first mile on Coyote is pretty challenging with a steady uphill climb and some three point rock climbing before you hit the plateau. Once you reach the top the rest of the hike is fairly easy. Great views at Panorama Point and a perfect spot to stop for lunch. Coyote is pretty quiet most of the time and no bikes are allowed. Mule Deer can get crowded and watch out for bikes. This is a good trail for a quick get away from Denver.

I truly found this hike quite boring and uneventful. No spectacular views. A decent amount of effort required with no reward, in my opinion. Glad I did it, as I love exploring, but don’t need to return.

Camped at Reverend's Ridge and started from there to hike the Mule Deer/Racoon/Coyote Trail/back to Mule Deer loop to Frazer Meadow and back up to Reverend's Ridge. Ended up being 9-10 miles total. Beautiful Aspens on most parts of the trail, although Frazer Meadow disappointed. Steep in parts but overall would rate the loop moderate.
