A bit of a climb at the start yields beautiful views of the Front Range and Pikes Peak. Upper parts of the trail are relatively flat and inviting. Trailhead includes modern rest rooms, playground, and a fishing pond.

I believe this park is new. There is a nice fishing pond and great bathroom facilities. There were more horse riders than hikers on this day. Overall, great trail. I would say it is on the easier side of "moderate."

Nice park that is great for a short ride when you don't have all day to spend on the trail. It's a hidden gem for the youngsters as well to play on the nice playground or fish in the little stocked pond.

Fun trail with wooded & open areas, nice views, picnic tables & seasonal restrooms & playground. Looking forward to snowshoeing here.

Arrived at 7am for a Sunday morning ride. There were already a few people on the trails, but parking for horse trailer was ample. There is a bridge at the start, which some horses may not like, but it is possible to bypass it on the trail to the north. Ascent via switchbacks opened up to open meadows along the "spur" trail where deer and songbirds were plentiful. Midway through the loop is an old windmill with hitching racks and a trough for thirsty horses. Great ride!
