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.
