Easy access and a great trail. I’ve done this trail several times. High traffic, lots of runners. Everyone is very courteous. Enjoy

Start of trail (first 2 miles) not great, lots of walking nearby road and power lines. But once you get onto section 16 much much better the views are spectacular!!! Would recommend starting early if going to be a hot day!

Beautiful trail, sunny day. A little hard to follow at times because there were a lot of connecting trails.

Great trail. Easy to follow. Go counterclockwise for the hardest climb. Haven’t finished the whole loop yet, but it’s a nice trail. The top of the ridge is in beautiful pines.

Lots of variety on this hike. Great views of Garden of Gods, valleys, and the red rocks. I took the loop counter clockwise, but I think the other way would be better. It seems that the section 16 would be easier going down clockwise. Lot's of people on the trial, all very nice and respectful. I took my dog with me, and no problems.

great trail,ride, views. just an fyi I'm new to mountain biking and a part of section 16 is listed as hard very accurately...I had to walk my bike down for a lot of the switchbacks and rockier parts. Even with that, highly recommend
