Beautiful, peaceful hike. Loved the intrigue of finding the Ute prayer trees.

Great trail for conditioning for high altitude. I"ve been away from the area for over a year so have lost some lung capacity and some of the uphills forced me to slow down. But I made it. Fun hike!

Really nice trail. Tons of hills and turns. It has bathrooms and playgrounds for the kids. I would recommend driving to the top and then start down. Chipmunks are all around the ponds. I had my kid on the back of my bike and did just fine. Heart rate peaked around 165.

This was a great little hike, really close to town and I-25. As others have mentioned, it is not really well marked, but if you have your app on, the scenery is beautiful and the trail is really clean. A perfect hike for families and kids of all ages!

Not much scenery but nice and easy for a quick run or dog walk. Left the gps on for most of the trail since it wasn't marked well.

An easy but beautiful and convenient trail. I love all the Ute Prayer trees in Fox Run. So many interesting culturally modified trees that were worked on up to 3-400 years ago. Fascinating!

Easy walk on wide, wooded trails. Not really any scenery. Bathrooms were locked, so none available at trailhead.

This is an easy loop trail with only 500 ft. of total elevation gain. The whole trail moves through a very nice pine forest giving the feel of seclusion. This trail does have several other trails that fork off of the main one so be careful that you are on the right trail. Trail 360 on YouTube

Pretty neat hike. We ended up hiking about 3.1 miles round trip. Lots of trees so it's pretty shaded. The main trail does fork into smaller trails so if you're wanting to stick to the main trail, make sure to download a map from here. There is also a bathroom at the trailhead, along with another one at about the midway point.

Beware of all the horse poop along the trails! :)

Trails can be a bit hard to discern in a few places. Otherwise, it was lovely!

Nice easy & beautiful path, especially healthy to those recovering from knee surgery.

Easy walking trail, a little boring but nice and quiet. I accidentally got on another trail a few times and walked for longer than planned

This trail system is a bit hidden in the park and feels bigger than it is - at least the first few times you explore it. For being in a very popular park it's not crowded in my experience. It's mostly, if not all, shaded in by the pine trees of the forest with a frequent ups and downs. Great for a quick run or walk through the woods.
