Peaceful but nothing special about the views

boring for a hike and people fishing have absolutely trashed the lake. very disappointing.

Nice trail. Wide trail, good one to take the kids. Go early, very sunny, no shade. First mile or so is a gentle up hill. Beautiful rock formations! Close to Denver. Coyote trail is not clearly marked on the return, bring a map along.

Nice easy flat trail. Kids loved watching the ducks and the views were pretty. Only downside is there is no shade.

Love this trail. The rock formations are beautiful.

Easy track for a nice run with pretty views! It has very little incline; my watch said only about 70 ft. elevation gain. Also there is close to zero tree coverage so be sure to keep that in consideration!

The trail is poorly marked, especially on the west side.

Easy hike with great scenery and only 30 minutes from Denver. Went on a Saturday morning and lot was almost full by 9am so get there early on the weekends.

Nice stroll through open space. Lots of birds and beautiful rock formations. Gentle

This trail is our daily walk after dinner. Close to home with beautiful valley views. Wildflowers are sparse however birds are plentiful. We enjoy the temperature changes throughout the walk.

I don't know why I can't choose walking as an activity but I live close enough too walk to this loop and did so with my dogs this evening. it was very pleasant and we saw many folks fishing, families walking, picnicking and lots of bird wildlife. Excellent time of day this time of the year. I would also recommend as a run for a loop with not much incline.

Easy hike.

Well trafficked trail on Memorial day weekend. Easy going trail with some good views and awesome wildlife. Finished in under an hour with plenty of time to take it all in.

easy loop for family and pet

Beautiful trail that’s wide enough for mountain bikers, runner, and hikers (until you get to the national forest/Indian creek trail/Colorado Trail). I saw about 20 bighorn sheep in close proximity about 6 miles in. The only slight downside was NO WATER FOUNTAINS except 2 by the start of the trail. The trail has full exposure to the sun and there is little breeze. The crowd begins to thin out a little past 3 miles (with the exception of mountain bikers). I ran into one other trail runner on the loop.

We live close to the trail and this is one we love to hit up when we need to get out! Beautiful views, easy parking, great trail!

Easy trail with really beautiful views. My friend and I did the trail in the late afternoon which was really nice. Not too many people/dogs, sizable parking lot and clearly marked directions along the way.

Beautiful trail close to Denver. Easy, nice path, well maintained. Nice views of the foothills and red rocks formations. Highly recommend for an easy day hike.

I had heard this place being referred to as Disneyland for dogs so of course we had to go. Even on a mid morning Tuesday it was busier than expected. It was nice to have the pup off the leash and he had a great time playing with other dogs. Not sure if it was because there were so many other people and pets there or the worn trails and well used areas but it still felt urban to me. I’m hoping to find an off leash place with long stretches for solitude and contemplation but this wasn’t it. Still a nice outing for the pup and socialization.

Saw a coyote so that was enjoyable. Easy basic trail sign a steady incline. High trafficked trail.
