HikingGreat!

Lovely, easy to follow loop. I went on 02/21 and the trail was nice and dry. The parking lot was a little tricky to find- look for a small driveway and whit trailhead sign on the right as you come up Little Park Road from GJ. Will be back with my bike!

Currently pretty muddy on the “2nd half” of the hike (when starting counter-clockwise). I would suggest doubling back somewhere around the 2 mile mark

My soul is full! Great hike, much more muddy than anticipated, but it made for some good technical passes. Definitely will be back!

HikingGreat!

Trail was amazing. Contrary to Leah’s crappy reviews most of the trails in this area are beautiful.

Mountain bikingRocky

Warning - this is not a beginner mountain biking trail! I am a nervous beginner and walked/pushed close to half of the ride. There are lots of rocks and narrow passages. Had several locals ask me why we were here and suggested Kokopeli or Road 18 instead. With that said, it is close to town, quite pretty, and easy to see people coming. And I’m glad I did it. We “rode” clockwise and took the cutoff via Clunker. Early in the morning, the first 1/3 is in the shade. It is interesting terrain and I would return to hike it.

This trail is great for a quiet walk or trail run. Quirky with its added buckets as guide cairns and a beautiful view of the Monument and Bookcliffs.

Great Trail (not very difficult) especially for trail runners, parents with kids, and those new to mountain biking. great view of the Bookcliffs from about the halfway mark. not quite as pretty as some hikes, but definitely one to check out.
