The wind in the loop around the top was strong, but the views were great and it was an easy winter hike.

There is a nice loop at the top with great views of the front range. Path is rocky in places. I encountered a few mountain bikers on the trail but pretty quiet place overall.

the Lincoln mountain loop starts out nice, than gradually gets more & more rocky. jagged, pointy & covered the trail. The horses were clearly struggling. unless you have boots on all fours it's pretty rough. once we headed to other side the trail got much better!

Easy trail ! Good footing , if you want an easy horse ride I gave it 4 stars for the fact that it's user friendly , big horse trailer parking area , quiet not busy . I take horses out here and school them .
I prefer to ride "hard" trails but this is a clean well kept trail

Nice gradual hike. Starts out in a open space / meadow. Goes up through the mountainous / tree areas and back through the meadows. Beware, the beginning and the end of the trail are swarming with horseflies, I easily killed 15+

Nice fairly easy hike. Wide well marked trail. Cloudy day on this hike. Would have needed lots so sunscreen had it been sunny. There is little to no shade.

Love this trail! There are two different loop options, both are wonderful. I've never seen it busy. I usually see a few horseback riders, but not many and a couple other hikers. I've seen cranes and bull snakes here. The wildflowers are beautiful and bountiful in July and the trees turn a beautiful color in fall.

Horse trail not a hike! Pulled up to find 15 large horse trailers and at least 60 horses.
