Pretty, but incredibly windy. Like, it was very unpleasant. Also lots of mountains bikes. Probably really nice on weekdays.

Beautiful views, some snow on the trail but mostly rocks and clear. Great for a leisurely pace, pretty flat.

HikingGreat!

definitely a pick up your feet walk .. loose rocks...but I loved it. good mix of views, incline and fresh air. nice wide paths, only a few spots you get close to anyone and all people except for a few Starbucks bimbos were wearing masks :) the free parking right now is nice!

This trail is “soul food”... amazing views of the flatirons and fresh pine smell wafts through the trail.

I always love doing this loop. I recommend going in the evening during the week and staying until sunset. Not very crowded during the week. There is a $5 fee to park but they were out if envelopes to pay tonight. Definitely bring your dogs!

This is a nice trail, but has a lot of people and bikes. The trail back has a small sized rocky trail. The view when you get to the top area is really beautiful, but you will need to take Dawdry trail to see it. It was a crowded lot at 9:30.

Great trail! We were almost the only ones as the weather was cloudy and rainy. Really nice open and wide trail, great distance.
