Very nice and well maintained trail. BUT....the directions by Google Maps do NOT take you any where near the trailhead. I access off the park at Lakeview Circle and Lakeshore Drive

As city trails go, this is a really good one. Excellent views of Longs Peak, the Indian Peaks, etc. Great birds: blue heron, pelicans, coots, merganzers and a year-round nesting pair of bald eagles. It's a vibrant city park with lots of people having fun fishsing, supping, kayacking, slacklining, hammocking, biking. There's even a short spur up to an old farmstetad museum where you can hang out with goats, ponies, cows and chickens. If you live in the area, make a point of visiting this park .

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.

Nice enough walk. I heard a plane fly over and it ruined the whole experience though.
