Great little gem close to town. Nice parking lot at trailhead. Fairly easy walking on the packed gravel path for the first section of the East West Trail heading west then gets steeper as you get closer to the West Big Dry Creek intersection. Numerous options including heading into the Backcountry trails if you are a Highlands Ranch resident (bring your Rec center card) or I continued west on the East West trail. Beautiful views in all directions. Not overly crowded for a Sunday morning. Will definitely go back and explore the side trails.
