When I put this trail in my GPS it took me to Forsberg Iron Mountain Springs Park. Anyway, this trail is paved, full sun and there's a dog park. The trail goes into a subdivision and it got confusing.

Almost completely dry except for 2 or 3 brief muddy spots. Just fine in regular tennis shoes today!

Mellow trail. Very exposed so agree that it’s great in the winter.

Great trail for a chilly January hike but I wouldn’t want to do that in the summer, as there’s no shade at all. Saw some wildlife. Trails are heavily used but there are many paths so you can make your own adventure.

Definitely a mixed use trail, lots of bikes, families, and dogs out. Gentle hike with views of Denver, the suburbs, and the foothills.

From what I've ridden so far this is a pretty decent trail. However you will probably find yourself mostly either climbing or descending for the majority of ride, there is not a lot of flat or gradual rolling terrain.

Great little loop but barely any shade at all. Saw lots of bees. Lots of bikes.
