Nice easy to medium trail with boulders. Trail is mostly through the woods not in wide open fields.

Super fun loop trail with easy access. Great trail for a flatlander from South Dakota. Long gentle inclines through open meadows and pine forest followed by long fun single-track downhill back to the trailhead. There was one section that was a bit too technical for me, but otherwise this was a fantastic trail for the weekend mountain biker.

A beautiful, easy hike or mtb loop. From parking area on shadow mountain drive, loop took 2 hours at an easy pace. Love the varied terrain including dense forest. A handful of interpretive signs make it a nice hike for any out-of-town guests. At the main parking area off the Flying J Ranch road, there are clean restrooms and some covered picnic sites.

Been here twice with our 2-year old. Great for low key hikers and easy to get to from Denver. Definitely recommend for young kids or family members that maybe aren't in for a strenuous hike.

Great easy hike. 3.1 miles of rolling terrain through a Conifer forest. The track is smooth dirt with many ruts but few rocks. Makes for a nice shady hike with fresh pine scent. Parking is limited.

For an easy trail with shade, it's top notch. Go early as there's a small parking lot. Not too many bikers generally, which makes it a much more pleasant hike.
