The initial route has lots of traffic noise from I – 70 but diminishes if you continue past the end of the Village Walk route. I walked until I met up with the Village Ride route (bikes only because the first portion of Village Walk does not have a good sight distance for bikers) then continued on the Red Rocks route for another mile. Met one Mt. biker and three hikers/joggers on the Village Walk/Red Rocks which was easy/moderate with some ups and downs and good footing. I was in Tevas, a backpack with 10 pounds in it, and a walking staff and didn't trip once.

No wildlife to speak of. Routes were surrounded by mostly grasses. No shade for at least 95% of my hike.

this is the trail you have to take to start the Red rocks or Morrison slide trail. it used to be a mile loop but the other half is bike only which kinda stinks. This trail is cool because the old cemetery is visible but it gets vandalized a lot. please be respectful.
