Ran the loop today with the addition of the M to N loop on the far East side. Going clockwise, it's a gnarly little hill coming back up. Also, if your looking far a longer run at the bottom of the M to N loop there is a pedestrian bridge that connects to the Phillip S Miller park trails. There is a trail race " Castle Rock Trail Festival" that will include this trail - Oct 7. Good trail for training and easy to get to.

not crowded but not much of a challenge, shrubs and sparse views.

Nice trail. Easy to walk with great views. Saw my first rattlesnake. Walked up on it....didn't see it until it was 2 feet away. It started to coil and rattle. Lots of bikes on the trail but all were very courtesy. A few runners and other hikers as well. Pet and kid friendly.

I was here early Saturday morning. Was quite and I think I was the only one hiking. Mostly brush , but also has some good views of the mountains. I would rate the hike as easy and I had a heavy pack on. Nice get away closer to town.
