EASY PARKING! Something I always stress about going to a new trail-this was super easy, park right at the dog park. Best views of the mountains and open space you can get in town. Lots of snake signs but didn’t come across any. Met about three others on the trail so lots of alone time to take in the sights.

Nice easy trail. I saw a porcupine passed out in a tree. Great views, Not a lot of shade, The rocky outcropping is a pretty neat feature of this trail. No snow on the trail but a little bit was still in the shade. This would definitely be an easy mountain bike trail.

Nice little trail if your looking for something not really long with some quick views. You just have to ignore highway 25 noise. When your done you can hang out and watch the dogs at the dog park.

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.

More of a dog park, not a hike or trail by any means

Perfect for a family!!!

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.

10-23-10-LS, RB & dog; nice view across highway of Pikes Peak, Devil's Head and Longs Peak in distance. There are rest areas with benches and picnic tables.

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 trail walk for the family even our furry creatures.

this was a nice trail for my little dog!

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.

Perfect for beginning trail running and nice off leash dog space next to it

Easy hike, loved the scenery...loved it.

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.

Good loop run... Great views and climbs. Watch out for snakes :o

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.
