I take this trail regularly during the summer and fall. It's my go to running trail. Smooth path with some ups and downs but nothing too crazy. Nice run with amazing views in high altitude, can't get much better.

Beautiful, easy hike. Great for kids, dogs, beginning hikers. Plenty of wild flowers. Gorgeous walk beside a creek, with a reservoir at the end. Walk as far as you want along the side of the reservoir. Very pretty.

Nice quick trial that isn't too difficult and has lots of great views. As soon as you hit the running water you will be faced with a left path and a right path, go left for a nice easy walk and right for a bit more of a challenge. Was the only one on the trail at 7 am.

Great easy trail that leads to Rampart Reservoir. Beautiful scenery along a trail easy enough for the kiddos to enjoy too.

Nice trail. pretty easy, though the distance makes up for it for a good workout. Pretty windy at times around the reservoir.
