Don’t pay attention to the hard rating for this if you are hiking. It would definitely be hard on a bike, but for hiking it’s in the easy/moderate range. Easily done by myself and my wife and we’re causal hikers at best. Great views of the surrounding area!

I would rate this as easy for hiking. Scenic, but lack of significant elevation gain or scrambling made it a bit boring. I ran back the last 3 miles. Decently, marked trail, used the app once. Looks like a killer mountain bike trip. Will try the long Andy's Loop....looks interesting.

I’ve only ever mountain biked this trail, I would not recommend it for hikers. Lunch loops is primary designed for biking, so if you’re looking for hiking trails the valley offers a lot more scenic and only hiking trails.

Took tabeguache to moto to ravens ridge to kurts lane and back. Qualify this as easy. Found a trail I can run on the weekends. Some great views. Trail is well marked...used the app once for directions.

Challenging course that offers a variety of great views including the whole Grand Valley. Some sections are a challenge but nothing I would be concerned with. I definitely recommend traversing the Holy Cross trail to see the cross on the side of the mountain.

Very confusing trails no maps on which way to get back to parking lot where I started from

awesome and right outside of junction. pretty busy though and lots of bikers. the best part is that there are lots of trails to go off on, so there's lots to explore

long pretty hike but sometimes hard to follow

We went on a 50 degree day in December. Lots of people, mostly bikers. Lots of dogs ran free, which we didn't have a problem with. Great for kids who like to climb around and bikers.

Great trail. Dont let the 2.8 mi deceive you, it's a long one, probably took 2 hrs, had to walk the bike a lot. Trail is pretty well marked, just use context clues when you're unsure. Great views and so quiet.

This is rated as hard but I hike this one almost every week...with a 10 month old on my back and a lab attached to my waist. I would rate this one moderate. It's great for a quick hike (40 mins) or a longer one (80-90mins), trail run, or whatever that isn't too far out of town but feels like the middle of nowhere. It's my "go-to" for basic hikes.

It was fun for the first 3 miles then turned into living hell!! Flipped off a 5ft drop that was killer but I will not be returning! It is far from moderate, it's seriously extra hard as F*ck and is not for beginners. You should have a car parked at the end of the trail and one at the top of the trail because riding back is not the best. There is a cave if you make it to the top of the second mountain. Bring lots of water. You'll leave this trail with bruises and scrapes and maybe a bent wheel rim on your bike.

High desert, single track dirt multiple trails with good maps. All interconnected trails. Moderate to difficult. Can hike/bike short to long distances. Bring water as this is a very dry area. Close to town with good parking on Monument Road staging area. Very hot in summer so start early to mid morning. Close to 5000' elevation so use sun screen. Enjoy.

Beautiful views! Love this trail! My lil' dog loved it too. Just make sure your dog is on a leash, there are a lot of places where your dog can run off the cliff. This place is a hidden gem. Never new this place existed if not for this app.

After exploring much of bangs canyon this year, Ribbon trail has come to be my favorite.

You have to start at the small turn off to the right before coming to little park. There are massive caves from washed benonite, and a nice climb down a small rock face before connecting with Andy's loop.

The massive sandstone rock tops towards the end of the hike are a bear, and great exercise.

*If you're coming from the TH, if you get slightly off track you may end up on Old Gordan Trail.

I'm an intermediate mountain rider and the trail was well rated (hard); I walked more than I rode because it was very technical... But the view is so nice.

Did this hike over Memorial Day 2016. Great trail, well marked, remember to take the dirt road just before the mile marker/address. Very dog friendly, watch for the coyotes. Recommend the full 4.7 miles.

This is my favorite mountain biking trail on the planet. It has it all. Technical, mental descents, fun flows sections, strenuous climbs, technical step up moves, and all in one of the most beautiful places. It feels like another planet.
