Nice trail run with easy dirt single track. Trail is mostly shaded with some wildflowers (mostly fleabane, yarrow, wild roses, & thistles) . Mud Lake is prettier than it sounds.

Easy little walk in the woods. Mostly shaded. Water source if you take the spur that goes to the other open space. Lots of wildflowers.

A great hike for the kids. A very easy and well marked trail. Plenty of cover, and some nice views. It is all smooth single track, with very little elevation gain. There are maps at the parking lot.

Beautiful wildflowers on an easy trail. So easy that we did the loop twice. Fragrant forest and beautiful views.

Love the pond after a storm and just at dusk.

I would say easy, versus moderate, after all, 12 month old babes were riding their bikes. But perfect little hike when you want to be in the trees and see a lake and not have to break a sweat. My puppy loved it.

I did this Trail a couple weeks ago and there wasn’t enough snow. Ended up using my micro spikes instead. It’d be a really nice easy trail had there been more snow!

Pleasant, mellow trail. Not at all challenging but nice if you’re looking for an easy stroll through the woods.

This is a fun place if you want an uber-easy mtn bike ride. No fishing allowed, so the shoreline is cleaner than a lot of other places. This place isn't spectacular but it's sweet and a great picnic spot.

Easy in and out. On 10/28/17 we saw a family group of moose 50 feet off the trail. Scary, but awesome once it was over.

Spotted my first ever moose on this trail, which was a total treat - and that's why I give this trail 5 stars (otherwise I prefer the more difficult routes)...she was about 30 yards away, and if hadn't been looking, I would have missed her. I only stopped long enough to snap a photo (they can be aggressive, right?), and she kept her eyes on me but didn't budge.

Pleasant walk just a few minutes drive from Nederland. Picnicking is popular around Mud Lake. Very flat and easy walk through the trees and around the lake. Pick up Caribou Ranch Link to continue over to Caribou Ranch Open Space (no dogs allowed there).
