Personally, I love this place. There are many different birds out there, sometimes deer. Good views of the city and if you're wanting to challenge yourself you can follow the paths up to Gold Camp road and take numerous trails upward from there.

After a point the signs for the tail I was on stopped. I never got lost but made it a little harder. there were other signs that I was able to use and also other hikers were helpful.

excellent for trail running

I hiked this area starting at the Chamberlain trail head which starts in the very first parking lot in the North Cheyenne park. Great hike at the very beginning and then it turns into an area where new development has started and ends in residential area. It felt like I was hiking in some rich persons neighborhood. I would try the Chutes trail which comes close to this area but stays away from development areas. Other than that it was a quiet trail on a rainy day.
