Easy. Excellent view at the top with places to sit and enjoy. Dog park next to trail. I-25 is noisy but can tune it out.

Nice beginner trail for mountain biking. It’s on the side of a hill with a cow farm next to it. Dog park below it.

Nice little walk! Decent views of the mountains. Really want to find a way to scramble up that big hill instead of waking around to the top, looks like there's just too much vegetation.

I love that it's located right next to a dog park. I like to tore my pup out first so that he will walk loose leash on the trail.

I am pretty sure I spotted a mountain lion yesterday while on the trail. It walked away pretty far after spotting me.

Easy to find off the highway. Good for kids and dogs. Really liked the large, off-leash dog park in the area.

Took my dog and toddler on this trip from Glendale area. We walked around the off leash area first to get our dog in the right state of mind before walking the trail.

The dog park was fun. It was fairly large and very natural. More trash bags along the trail would have been nice - carrying a full poo bag with a toddler was not very fun.

The loop was good, has some good elevation changes and allows for a nice scenic view on the northwest.

The area was really busy, but parking was still not too bad. A nice little get away, but really close to the highway which is a reminder of the daily grind. Not sure if I'd go back.

Great for a quick hike with beautiful views of the front range. Has a little apple orchard in the beginning. Good dog park connected to it. Slippery if there is snow or ice on the trail.

Easy little hike/walk. Good for kids and dogs. Fun to run, although can be tricky in winter. Dog park attached to the area which also has a mini trail that you can loop around on.

Not strenuous at all. Windy & a touch muddy. Nice short hike with three kids - ages 9, 8, & 7. Brought our dog too. There's a huge dog park adjacent to trailhead, but dog must stay on leash in loop.

Not a bad little walk. Seems like it would be a great trail run. Lots of dogs around, and dog park nearby. Few horses here and there. Nice view from the top. Recommended as a sunrise or sunset hike. Very easy hike with three kids. Be advised of mud and snow during winter.

Awesome trails with panoramic views of the Front Range. Cleats advised for winter walks. Actually saw a Bald Eagle while hiking here. Beautiful Rock formations which are VERY common in this area

There is a dog park attached to this open space. The trail was very snowy and icy, but easy. Not a lot to see on the trail itself, but the views from the top are spectacular.
