Trail was great. Parts are closed due to “hazardous conditions” but we saw none of that (we ignored the warnings). Saw almost no other people on the trail. Minimal mud mostly dry trails. No shade so be sure you are ready for lots of sun. Trail names often don’t match so be sure you use GPS. Great easy trail. Did it in 1 hour 40 minutes.

Relatively easy hike. Started at south side of park. First section through red rocks very nice. Then crossed over road to Grazing Elk Trail. South side of loop overlooks Ken Caryl valley. Then heads north towards Lockheed Martin building. Entire loop unshaded, most of trail narrow. Good hike, though.
