If you don’t mind mosquitoes and a mild incline, then the north section is an interesting beautiful trail for running—pond, birds, prairie dogs, farms, and view of the front range. It gets crowded fast in the morning though and it’s not wide, so social distancing is a challenge. No dogs permitted on the north section, as it’s a preserve.

I did this twice recently, one of which was a trail run and the other was a wildlife watching hike (and have traversed it before). Trail running won't be fun if you aren't in shape (as was the case for me), because it's definitely inclined almost the whole way. Also, EVERY time I've been out there, coyotes have made their presence known. the first time, I had been wildlife watching and they suddenly started their eerie howling. easily saw two of them with my binoculars, looking at me. On my trail run, one of them was practically ON THE TRAIL maybe 50 feet in front of me. Didn't go very far when it scurried off as I approached. These guys aren't too afraid of humans, so you'll want to be careful with your pets. Lots of pretty birds to see in the spring and summer, including American White Pelicans on the lake (and of course tons of geese). Finally, the part north of Valmont Road running next to the creek is very buggy. Hasn't been too crowded the last couple of times I've been out there. This is a good social distancing trail because it is wide for most of the way.

Loved the trail! Occasional shade from the trees here and there but mostly open air. A little rough at times, but overall it’s a pretty smooth trail. Pretty straightforward, maps available at both entrances. I went on a Tuesday afternoon and only came across a handful of people, so it’s not heavily trafficked. I would definitely recommend!

Plenty of punchy little hills on smooth packed dirt and a good amount of ruts. Easily doable on a gravel bike or mountain bike. Great views of the front range and plains, as well as some amazing homes. Cut the ride short due to an incoming storm cell.

Love this trail. Reminder to folks that face masks are REQUIRED as there are many places where the six foot distancing is not possible. (Due to both fencing and high grass where snake may be hiding out;) Another reminder is that dogs are NOT allowed on the trail north of Valmont Rd. This includes the section of trail that is adjacent to the road. The sign is small but you pass it right next to the old cottonwood tree at the entrance to the trail from the Teller North parking lot.

North of Valmont - very pretty, marsh areas, lots of birds. Good for birdwatching, nature walk, or some casual mountain biking or trail running

Awesome trail for beginner mountain bikers or if your experienced and just tryna rip around. Out and back is eh but there’s great views of the mountains, some excellent hill climbs, descents, and terrain. Would recommend for anyone trynna have a short afternoon ride. There’s trails on both sides of the road so check them both out!

Nice flat walk or run trail. Wide enough for social distancing and it wasn't too busy at the time we hiked.

We decided to finish the rest of this trail. Snow made for some muddy sections, but it wasn’t bad. There were some nice variations with a creek and white rock formations a little further down the trail. Not strenuous, but a great way to enjoy the day!

Nice trail! A mix of sun and shade. Very enjoyable to bike on. With multiple trails that connect you have the ability to bike many miles. Didn’t appear to be a heavily trafficked trail. Will utilize again for sure!

Hiking

This trail is more for walking and running than hiking, but it was still decent on a cold day. Lots of parking and vault toilets at the trailhead. Once you get to the north side of Valmont, the trail bridge is washed out and the trail is closed, so you cannot connect up to the other trails. This made it a 6.2 mile out-and-back according to my recording. Lots of wildlife - coyote, hawks, golden eagle.

Thank you to all of the off-lead tagged dog owners for keeping good voice recall while I walked my 2 that are still in lash-training mode! Beautiful views, quiet. The two coyotes we saw must be resident, they kept their distance but were watchful.

It’s a gem - if you’re looking for a flat walkable or easy running trail. Great views of the front range mountains.
