Really beautiful views. Terrain goes up and down moderately. This trail is very sunny and can be very warm walking. Lumpy ridge views are interesting and awe-inspiring. Great panorama of Estes.

Some of the most beautiful views I have seen this close to a trail head and on easy terrain. This is hike I will return to over and over again. Twin Owls on one side and snow capped mountains on the other, breathtaking!

Good trail with quite a few options to take you in other directions. My suggestion would be to take a picture with your smartphone of the trail map from he trailhead. I did the loop plus Bridal Falls, but you just double back about 1.2 miles to Cow Creek trail to continue on the loop towards Black Canyon. I also suggest going right at Lumpy Head as this provides you quick views of downtown Estes on the way to Gem Lake.
