Beautiful trail with stunning views of the mountains, forest, and a meadow. Mid-February trail conditions = 85-90% mud, slush, snow, ice, ice underneath snow, and ice rivers. The climb from Bear Creek to the campground is particularly rough requiring traversing off the trail due to the ice river flowing down the trail. There is no trail marker for 800 at the intersection with Ringtail. Take the downhill trail to the left of Ringtail. Some sites have this trail marked as dog friendly. Please note that there is a section where it skirts the west end of Roxborough State Park which doesn't allow dogs.

I completed the inner loop to this trail, starting on the Colorado Trail then keep making a right turn. Total is 7.7 miles with ~1,550ft elevation change. Very pretty but half of the trails were frozen rivers. I strongly advise staying on the Colorado trail then looping back south. The north bound trail that splinters off from the Colorado trail is badly eroded due to bikes. In many spots the trail was 2 feet deep and 1 foot wide.
I plan to complete the full loop shown here and update my review.

Beautiful trails on 6500-7500 mostly in the forest with some views. Navigation is easy after the first snow, just follow the mountain bike traces. Most of the incline happens towards the end, so pace yourself carefully.
