Beautiful trail that’s wide enough for mountain bikers, runner, and hikers (until you get to the national forest/Indian creek trail/Colorado Trail). I saw about 20 bighorn sheep in close proximity about 6 miles in. The only slight downside was NO WATER FOUNTAINS except 2 by the start of the trail. The trail has full exposure to the sun and there is little breeze. The crowd begins to thin out a little past 3 miles (with the exception of mountain bikers). I ran into one other trail runner on the loop.
