Davenport Campground to Pueblo Mountain Park.
There and back is roughly 15 miles.

Devils Canyon portion of Pueblo Mountain Park trail should not be done with rain or decent rainfalls in the recent past. (Devils canyon is one trail option to make it to the trail head in the park)

Squirrel Creek Trail is crossed 33 times on a one way trip. If the creek is up, your feet will be wet.

Sights to see.
Ruins of Squirrel Creek lodge at roughly 2.3 miles
Squirrel Creek Picnic Shelter at roughly 5 miles
Devils Canyon in Pueblo Mountain Park. - challenging.

Overall the trail has amazing views and in good shape. At roughly 5.5 miles in the trail goes up a valley and is in rough shape. I can tell work has recently been done to improve it and most trees have been cleared from the trail.
