Great walking/running trail. Beautiful scenery, friendly folks, and a wildlife preserve. If you look closely you can see Pelicans, Blue Heroin, and Cranes. A little hidden gem in Longmont. Great trail for kiddos, and family time.

First time using this app & first time on this trail. Love them! Mostly & paved, partially ground stones. Beautiful views all around. The unpaved area is part of a preserve. We saw wildflowers, prairie dogs & birds - and those beautiful mountains. Easy flat walk.

Great for walking/running. Not so much a hike as a stroll though.
