We recommend heading up the steep part first, then doubling back after halfway so you don’t have to walk along the highway at the end.

Beautiful ride. Climbs were good. The descents were a little more technical than I would qualify as easy. I would call this an intermediate ride. Nice cultured trail with lots of tree cover for shade. Definitely worth the trip whether biking, hiking, or running. Very polite people here in Colorado. That speaks greatly to their character. Thanks for the experience!

Easy to find, wide trail. Nice loop, but because it is so easy to access / close to Evergreen Pkwy, there is also road noise.

Nice loop close to Denver. Perfect setting for walking, running or mountain biking.

Great series of trails with a mixture of grasslands, forests and rock formations. Close to Denver and well worth the visit..
