This is a very easy walk in the plains by the foothills of Colorado. Take the main path out to the turn around point and then walk the narrower trail back. On the way out you can view the mountains in their glory.

Perfect for an evening walk when the sun is going down. Nice view of the mountains. There's also a huge dog park right next door that is a great place to get some energy out of your pups before taking a relaxing walk!

Really a nice scenic trail to take, especially if you are new to the area. Mountain views from the Mummy range to the north to Pikes Peak (I believe) to the south. Not terribly crowded for a Sunday.

Great easy flat trail with spectacular views! Perfect for a jog around and you can make it shorter than the 3.3 miles if you want. Loved this one and only 10 mins from home! Flat open space. Not trees for shade though if it’s hot.

good trail, too icy and snowy for me to really enjoy the 3+ mile walk, also too close to traffic. maybe i’ll give it another try in the summer and with a good audiobook in my ears ;)

A very nice flat trail with segements that run behind a neighborhood, but has amazing views of the flatirons, longs peak and in place Boulder. Trail was dry, not terribly busy, some joggers, bikers and walkers with dogs.

A decent open space in a developed community, it was being used a lot by runners and dog owners when I was there. Residences line the edge of the open space, and a power line cuts across it. At the back end it runs close to a highway, but also access to what I believe is a paved bike path system. There are continuous views of the mountains, and if you cut across with the paths in the middle, a prairie dog town. Trails at this park loop are wide packed gravel. I took one sanctioned short alternate path that was more a traditional hiking trail, 0.4 miles with a dip off the mesa, and back up. There is a pedestrian tunnel from the parking area that goes under the road to a small body of water that can give you some additional mileage with its trail loop. It had additional parking and a clean pit toilet. I did not see a drinking water source. Benches were spaced along the route. I did the loop twice. it was a fine walk while I waited for my daughter to finish up a project in the area.

Great little trail for running. It was beautiful this morning in the snow, I broke in my new shoes, and had a blast. Nice and flat (helps with those still adjusting to the altitude like myself). Not one for mountain views, but a great little spot nonetheless.

No trees, lots of power lines and large groups of bikers that left walkers in a dust cloud as they went by.

Hard to beat the scenery on this perfect flat trail run-we did it twice this morning for our long run this week. Saw other runners and bikers but had a lot of quiet time with the views too. Get there early to score a parking spot and bring water.

This was a fine walk for an afternoon with the kids! We took a double (trail) stroller and my older son rode his bike. Very easy loop. Not overly exciting or scenic, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Convenient trail perfect for after work runs or bike rides. Great view of the Flat Irons. Mostly flat and surprisingly low foot traffic for how accessible the area is.

this was a beautiful trail to walk on, with amazing views. quite a few cyclists and runners, but it doesn't feel crowded. it's fully an open space, no shade and no tree coverage. trail goes alongside private property. make sure you bring water with you, it gets hot! there are no washrooms. overall a quite easy trail.

Amazing views. Have the option of walking a short or long (3.3) mile loop. Clean trail with a large dog park next to the trail. Family and pet friendly. Love walking our dogs here and great place for a bike ride.

Went out yesterday 3/20. No mud and lots of sun. Great 3 mile loop, close to town. Beautiful views of the mountains. No trees so the sun gets hot. Bring water. Enough runners and bikers that it felt nice and safe without being crowded.
