average. If you want to have some fun try running up the “shortcut” (very steep incline) on a snowy/icy day.

There isn’t a designated parking area, but the trail has lots of ups and downs to get your heart pumping! This was my first time on a bike after a year, so it was a bit of a struggle; I’m expecting to be sore. But definitely coming back here again!!

Rita buena, la recomiendo a pesar de los mosquitos por la noche y en el día no hay sombra, pero tiene muchos senderos divertidos.

I love to bike on this trail though It tests my fear of hills being from the flat Midwest!

Awesome hiking and biking with the opportunity to see coyotes at night. Great "hidden" trails located right in Broomfield - nice and easy to choose how far you'd like to go.

First time on this trail—loved it! Dirt and gravel trail path, and conditions EXCELLENT today! Trail completely dry—no snow or mud. A few hills with steeper inclines that would be perfect for my hill workouts. I’ll be back!

RunningIcyMuddySnow

Current conditions: Snow cover on about half of the trail. Prime time to be on it would be morning to mid-morning when the snow has softened but the trail is still firm. Earlier will be icy and later will be muddy. Did not need traction but it may be helpful to pack it along depending on your preferences/stability on snow and ice. Overview: Like an undeclared major this trail doesn’t know what it wants to be. There are stretches of graded gravel with wonderful Mountain views but there is also lots of concrete sidewalk through a suburban landscape. It doesn’t feel entirely like a trail tun or an urban hike. I’m not sure what trail user would feel like it is everything they are looking for. May be best for recreational cyclists as it is relative lengthy but the multiple surface types demand at least a gravel bike. I’d suggest linking it to trails further north off of Wadsworth rather than the eastern half of this route. A fine choice for Broomfield locals but there are better options of similar distance and proximity to Golden, Boulder, or Denver that offer a superior trail experience.

I burned some valuable time looking for a parking spot. I got lost, you got to weave through the neighborhood to find the trail. In the end i still put in my workout but i got allot of concerned stares from the residents.

RunningNo shade

This trail offers nice views of the mountains and mildly challenging rolling grade throughout to keep it interesting. While the trail is packed gravel, or in some sections paved, it still provides good ascent and is mildly challenging from that perspective. The paved sections occur primarily near the end of the out and back. If you’re looking for a break from rocky technical terrain but still want nice views and hills this is a great trail. There is no need for trail shoes. The trail doesn’t get too far from the road and/or homes so you do miss some of that truly outdoors nature vibe and there is a road crossing in the middle of the trail. On the other hand there were a LOT of creatures, rabbits and prairie dogs, in the morning throughout most of the trail. It was fun seeing them scamper about. Once the sun comes up over the hills to the east it gets warm and there is no shade. But a good run to do early in the morning if you’re not looking for a truly mountainous run.

Me and my dog walk about a mile of the trail almost every day, and we love it! It’s cool to see all the prairie dogs! the only thing you have to watch out for is there is some cactus, But as long as your dog is on leash and you’re watching them they should be Good

I only did a portion of the trail, but it was well-maintained and a fairly easy section. It’s a decent hike for being an urban hike, but you don’t get too far from the highway / traffic for parts of it. I did appreciate the views of the mountains and it was especially gorgeous today with all the clouds in the sky! There is no shade so be prepared on hot days.

Great for morning sunrise or evening sunset walks/runs within full view of the mountains. Great beginner trail for biking or to get your legs back.

Walking

This should be rated as an easy trail as it is either paved or a crushed rock base and the grades are gentle. This section of trail connects to other trail systems that can get you from the mountains to downtown Denver. Take a look at the maps and make your own suburban adventure.
