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!

A treasure hidden right out in the open. Great afternoon loop!

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.
