Pretty decent trail. Elevation gain is quick about 1/3rd of the way into the trail. Easy to miss the loop trailhead if you are going the further east way around first so keep a look out on your right. Very low foot traffic for a late morning/early afternoon hike. Watch out for a few patches of horse droppings along the way.

Great for running, but look out for rattlesnakes! Almost stepped on a big one

My dog and I had a great morning hike. Saw two other people on the trail. The incline to the top is not bad at all. I sat at the top and read for a bit which was nice!

Pretty muddy and snowy/icy from the snowstorm the other day. Trail goes through a couple neighborhoods to get to the lake and reservoir. The descent down to the lake is steep and very muddy (my chain fell off). Saw a bald eagle at the lake and got a flat tire on the way back. Not a bad trail has some pavement and gravel and dirt.

Great hike when it’s not too hot because there are no trees.

This is a really easy hike for a great sunset view. Trails are narrow but my pooch and I had fun running through the prairie grass. Enjoy!

Easy and quick just outside of Arvada. No wildlife sightings today. The trail runs near 80th so you hear and see cars the entire hike. Also you can hear the construction of the new housing development going in.

I would never choose this trail for a leisurely hike, but it's a great trail for running.

Ok trail for a quick hike close to town. Nice views of the foot hills but some road noise.
