The trails are fairly well marked. We were 4 hikers and a dog in a place where everyone was mountain biking. There are some areas that are full of loose shale-type rock that might be difficult for dogs. There is no shade, which was fine during a pleasant December day. It would be really hot during the summer.

Love this route on my bike! Not for the faint of heart and be ready for some tarantulas and snakes. I recommend full gear and a solid bike with plenty of water because you'll be hiking back up to ride this one all day!

Medium difficulty due to loose rock; wear hiking shoes if you have them.

I almost stepped on a rattlesnake where the grass had grown up on the trail a bit. Know what to do for bites before you hike here. I had talked to a park ranger before and he insisted there were no rattlers but my dirty shorts say otherwise.

This trail wasn't particularly difficult. There are some cool areas with small canyons. It's not very well labeled and it's quite easy to get turned around, so make sure you get and understand a map, or the alltrails app, which saved my bacon after I got turned around.

The description and map are a little misleading. This is a network of trails that covers the area and some cross is a few spots. There is no shade so plan accordingly.

This is a great area to mountain bike, everything from fast flows single track to gnarly technically trails. Also fun to hike out onto the bluffs. Everything is named and signs are there. A map can be obtained at pueblo bike shops or online @ lake pueblo trails

Did this trail as my first hike. It was nice for starting. Very hot and not much cover from the sun so wear protective clothing and sunscreen
