Very lush green forest like trail. Lots of flowers and not a boat load of ppl. I logged 4.3 miles on this trail today compared to the 1.8 it says. You can hear the traffic most of the hike other wise it's a great hike. It's a straight climb up... about 900 ft if you do all the loops.

Pretty trails through a healthy forest. Steady 900ft climb from the meadows to the high point but spread out over a couple miles. As you'd expect, the crowds thin the further you go (and there really aren't to many people to begin with).

Only 'problem' with this park is there's no payoff for the effort - get to the top and you're still surrounded by trees unless you venture off on the 'rogue' trail to legault mountain.

Nice workout, thought I was hiking to a lookout point but never got to one, later found out you have to go off trail to find the lookout point. All in all, a nice hike just not very rewarding.

I take out of town visitors here for an easy hike amid the aspens and evergreens. It's always beautiful.

Nice trail with lots of shade. Close to highway so a fair amount of traffic noise, but pretty wildflowers and great trail for kids.

My husband and I took our mountain bikes clockwise around the loop which made it a steep walk/cycle up with a longer and slightly less technical downhill gradient. However if you prefer a more difficult downhill with more switchbacks, I'd go anti-clockwise. Overall though it was a fun reasonably short trail through some beautiful forest.
