The trail is not very well defined. We got lost in the woods, but the GPS helped us get back safely. The scenery was incredible, and no people around.
I will try to hike this one next season too.

You have to park at the lot right off rampart range rd for the campground turnoff and walk into the campground .
The trailhead is not marked. It is located at the end of the campground behind site #18. There is no marker, only an old steel sign indicating "no motorized vehicles". The trail down to the loop is a well defined runoff trail which brings you down to a small fairly open meadow. Here is where the loop begins, go immediately right, into the trees along a small creek. The trail itself is almost indiscernible and overgrown. It's a great area, but I did not go to far. I forgot my bear spray and I know this area is frequented by them. It's clear the trail is not maintained if it ever was a real trail, it may be a game trail. I'll be coming back when im better prepared.

Folks should know that you can't get to this trail until the Rampart Range Rd. opens for the season.

Hiked this from Plymouth Creek trail; adds extra distance and more views of Denver from on high. Nice trail pretty even once you've already climbed Plymouth Creek to get there; about half is along the ridge, the way back is mostly wooded.
