I read lots of negative comments. We had a wonderful time! Saw pelicans, spawning carp, deer, great heron, Canadian geese with goslings, ducks. It was amazing. Bugs were not bad at all. Some complaints about the traffic noise, again we were not at all bothered by traffic noise.

Easy trail for kiddos. Lots of airplanes overhead if your kid likes that kind of thing. We didn’t see any wildlife. No shade or places to stop and rest.

BUGS ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE. No amount of deep forest ultra super mega powerful cutter bug repellant could repel those buggers. Get ready for an arm workout *swats*

It was a nice short walk. More people start to show up after 10:30.

This is a great short getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. You get to enjoy panoramic views of the mountains while being surrounded by the great vegetation of the plains. During the Covid-19 pandemic they are limiting car access into the area but I only had to wait a few minutes before the ranger let me through. Enjoy!

This is a dog friendly trail that is flat and accessible for even baby carriages. Hardly any foot traffic today.

Great for bird watching and a quiet walk. No dogs, bikes, or jogging is allowed (as with all trails in the refuge) . Definitely a hike to help even out your tan lines. Lol

Easy trail, lots of people

Nice, easy walk on a sunny morning! I only saw birds and bugs, in terms of wildlife. But also very few humans, which is a plus in the age of COVID-19.

Awesome wildlife walk. It seems dusk is prime time for animal watching at RMA! The water features are visually refreshing. Super easy stroll.

A wide, flat, normally family friendly trail around a lake with a great view of the front range. Right now, it’s just very muddy and slick. Not much to it. You can do the 11 mile drive around the animal park and see deer, bison and prairie dogs. Fairly busy in the park.

Trail is nice and dry, there were a few eagles circling high above at 11 am.

well worth the entrance fee. Just one tip: if you can, avoid weekends, there are very many people there.
