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.

3/23/19 - Park in Forsberg parking lot and walk through underground bridge to get to trailhead. Trail was 90% mud free. You hit some ice and mud while crossing in the underground bridge. But otherwise it was a nice trail to walk. Lots of bikers flying by so you have to watch out for that.
