Easy short loop with minimal elevation changes. Perfect when your knee is killing you, ha. Enjoyable in the winter with nice views of downtown Denver.

Great hike for out-of-towners who want a taste of the mountains without going into a flop sweat. Mostly sunny path, but it's open enough to catch a breeze as well as an expansive shot of the east half of Colorado.

Great easy trail. Nice views, good interpretive signage. It wasn't as busy as I expected. Lovely walk!

It's a very easy trail...I walked it twice. The path was dry today. It's mostly prairie with ponderosa pine scattered here and there. The east facing view goes on forever...past Denver and probably into Nebraska!

Very easy. The mansion, scenic drive to the trail, and the views made for a good way to spend an hour. Would recommend for beginners and people with children. The views are stellar.
