Beautiful trail for a run. Great view of the Flatirons and front range. Pretty crowded for a week day but not horrible.

If you’re looking for beautiful vista views of the Flatirons, then this trail is a good option. I wouldn’t recommend it during the afternoon; there’s no shade and it can be busy with mountain bikers.

No shade and a lot of open space. Better for biking or running. Some inclines on a well defined trail with gravel maintenance in some spots. Sunscreen is advised and cattle do travel through the area. Horses would do well on this path, provide you can find parking for your horse trailer. Kids would be easy to keep in sight. Bike maintenance post at the Coalton Rd entrance.

Better for a light mountain bike than hiking. Pretty mellow but there is no shade. You do get pretty good views of the flatirons from the top.

Wouldn't call it hiking, more of a nature walk. Well maintained path with a couple gentle inclines. Saw very few walkers/runners but was very heavily trafficked with mountain bikers. Lots of cattle around/along the path so if you happen to have a fear of livestock, then avoid this trail.

Fairly nice trail. Not very busy. Mix of runners and bikers. Pretty exposed without any shade. Great for trail running with a little one in a stroller as long as you have a decently rugged jogging stroller. That's what I've been coming to the meadowlark trail for, getting a run in between my 1 year olds naps.
