HikingGreat!No shade

We enjoyed this loop overall, but for us novice hikers, we thought the signage was a little confusing at times. The trails meander through meadows with pretty flowers and grasses, and of course mountain views, but its pretty much full sun except for the Lynx short cut, which goes through the woods (only about 5 minutes though). We did Bobcat, Bear, Lynx shortcut to Elk, which took us back to the parking lot of the visitor center. We saw many types of birds, prairie dogs, a deer and chipmunks. A nice hike with scenic views, but be prepared with your sun coverage!

These are lovely mostly shady strolls. Lots of deer. Unfortunately, lots of houses.

The trail was very well marked and easy to traverse. I would totally do this trail again. There was one part on the back of the loop of coyote...where all the switchbacks and W occurs on the map. It was pretty steep and I would have HATED to go down that part....the up was manageable but it was narrow and rocky. If you aren't confident in your hiking then be sure to go counter clockwise (deer, coyote, bear, bobcat).. Overall a wonderful trail and we really enjoyed it.

We needed a respite from straight uphill trails and this filled the bill! We started on Deer trail and then hit Coyote, came down Bear and took Bobcat back to the car. It's mostly flat with some gentle inclines through mostly pine forest with some aspen thrown in. The trails wind through greenbelt land through some houses. It was secluded and quiet. It was also nice for our dogs to be off leash and romping around. We only encountered one other couple which prompted us to leash the dogs but never saw another person. A delightful hike.

Well maintained and enjoyable. Did the whole loop then stopped at the Farmers Market for some goodies at the end. The coyote part of the trail was pretty difficult for us as novice bikers, but it was still fun.

Nous nous sommes garés au Visitors Center et le chemin se situe sur la droite derrière, il est très facile d'accès et toujours bien indiqué. Bonne randonnée de 7,5 kilomètres en passant par la Deer, Coyote trails puis nous sommes montés par la Power Line pour avoir une belle vue, cela a rendu la randonnée plus intense car ça grimpe pas mal, aller et retour. Nous avons continué jusqu'au Bear trail puis terminé par le Bobcat. Le sentier est bien entretenu et diversifié entre pentes et descentes sur les vallons, les belles prairies, les zones un peu plus sèches... Un vrai plaisir

This was a beautiful trail. The deer and bear trails are easy, they are great for beginning hikers. The coyote trail was a bit more difficult with some elevation gain. The bear trail is beautiful, through a quiet meadow.

This is a great trail for young kids, people trying to acclimate to the high altitudes or mountain bikers. It's a greenbelt trail so you're hiking through a mountain side subdivision which I really didn't like. There aren't any views unless you go to the power line for a view... but it's well marked

First to Review

Hiked the deer and cutover to the lynx trail earlier in the month, but did this entire trail just a few days ago. Trail had a few elevated paths, but the majority is easy. It is a solid 4.7 miles, so it’s a great walk/hike. Had to watch for a few mountain bikers, otherwise it was relatively quiet with the exception of passing a couple of other hikers.
