Parts of the trail were a little busy, but for the most part I could run for 10-20 minutes without seeing someone - nice in this covid era. I ran this as part of a marathon training regime, not a whole lot of elevation gain which my knees appreciated. Lots of great views into the front range and mixed surroundings, open plains and woods.

Great trail for any type of hiker or runner with incredible 360° views.

Mostly single track. Segments of the full loop are a pleasurable dirt path while others are more rocky with uneven surfaces.

As a beginner this was a great mountain bike trail to gain my confidence on a bike. There are definitely some climbs to get your heart pumping and then there was a technical part I walked my bike down but others were flying down it no problem! Was a lot of fun I’ll be back

This is a nice length trail for the beginning of the hiking season. Good for a 6month old puppy too! we went at 10:30 on a Sunday and it was only moderately crowded. Nice views, no shade. Lots of bikes.

Excelente ruta para Bicicleta, poca gente en el sendero, parte de la ruta inicial en el mapa no estaba correcta después de un rato encontré nuevamente la ruta. Ahora fue un clima agradable, una experiencia mas me gusto el sendero y el camino de bajada fue emocionante. Fue mi primera ves en esta ruta. Totalmente recomendada.

My first trail run ever, not bad it’s very rocky but have a good level of up and down hills. Will do again. Just be cautious of your footing if you are new to trail running.

Just too many bikers now—some rude enough to ruin one of my favorite hikes.

Definitely a beautiful easy trail. More like a walk in the park.

I'm not sure how this is moderate--I'd rate it as easy for hiking and mountain biking. Fun trail, though.
