2/28/21. Very, very muddy in some spots. Nice simple 3.4 mile loop with sun exposure the whole time.

Nice hike to do with the dogs. It was very moody tho. But if you want something quick and close to Denver. This is a good place!

I really enjoyed it. Not too busy and for the most part room to let bikers pass. It was nice to take my dog to the dog park beforehand too.

It was a very nice trail, not too busy. It was very windy and no shade. The parking lots is not too big and was very crowded, since there’s also a dog park there.

Muddy, the specially near the trailhead. Easy for some unacclimated guests. Originally planned to do green mountain via some older marked trails, but they have been fenced off. A good family hike if you don’t mind a little mud.

Short easy trail to stretch the legs close to home. Not many people on the trail but pretty muddy in some spots.

Park across the street at Forsberg Park and there's a short tunnel under Alameda that drops you right at the beginning/end of this trail. I made the mistake of going the opposite direction (turning left to start) because it looked like an easier beginning, but then I ended up turning too early and going up a series of brutal switchbacks where there was a constant stream of mountain bikers instead of continuing straight where the trail would have eventually turned back. Moral of the story: it's probably a lot easier to stay on the right trail if you turn right at the beginning!

HikingGreat!

Beautiful! Really enjoyed this hike, and the views were amazing. A little sketched out by the potential for rattlesnakes and the tons of signs posted for that, but it makes sense.

Near Denver and pretty easy. Nice views of Red Rocks and the Front Range. Denver in the distance. Lots of bikers, but not much traffic. No shade at all but it was cool and breezy...
