Great late afternoon walk with the pup!

this is not a trail... this is a path through a neighborhood. hiking boots clearly unnecessary. it's sidewalks behind houses.

Trail is decent. Some rocks but otherwise pretty good walking conditions. A little bit of shade which was welcome. There’s some good views. Would be good for out of towners.

My son and I started hiking this around 9:30 am on Thursday (two days ago). Beautiful fall”ish” weather. Skipped the Meadowlark portion of the upper loop. Took a hard fall descending the rocky portion. Turned my ankle on a loose rock. Was descending at a fast pace. So... my fault really. Lovely close in trail, but quiet and feels farther out. Found some wild raspberries right along the side of the trail. Delicious! Our hike was 5.3 miles. Will definitely do this one again!

Awesome trail, easy loop. Saw lots of deer close to trail close to sunset.

Beware the false summits! This trail feels like it goes on and on. After you think you've reached the end there is always another slope to climb. This is a long 7+ mile hike. Make sure you pack enough water and food and give yourself enough time. I didn't make it because the sun was quickly descending. I had just another 0.5 a mile to the top. I think I will go again earlier in the summer next year.

Great easy trail. very little to no shade so it was getting a warm in the late morning sun. really enjoyed taking my time to just enjoy the sights and sounds. saw 3 deer today and lots of birds. great views. would recommend to anyone new to the area who needs a nice easy trail to help acclimate to evaluation with just a little challenge.

Nice little hike with a little shade here and there. Love the rock formation in this state park.

Easy loop hike. Beautiful views of red rocks through the valley. We went early in the morning. Only ones in the park. Incredibly still and peaceful. If your just looking for an easy 1.5 mile walk, this is a great one.

Beautiful views! Nice little easy trail. Be sure to check out the Lyons overlook.

great introductory hike. I enjoyed the beautiful views of the rocks and the fact that is was a short trail with little elevation change. As someone from the Midwest and not used to the altitude, this was a perfect way to familiarize myself with my gear, the conditions and still enjoy the beautiful red rocks and scenery. only drawback was the last 1/4-1/3 of trail is actually along the road. still some nice views since I started the trail around 6pm and the sun was setting casting nice colors on the rocks. would definitely recommend as a nice starter trail and will come back and do some of the longer trails!

Beautiful valley views of the front range as well as rock formations. There are two trailheads at South Valley Park, we found it preferable to begin at the South trailhead. This trail follows Coyote Song Trail, and loops you back around via Swallow Trail. Trail is dirt/sand/gravel with mild elevation gain (roughly 310ft), and is very well maintained. This is an easy light hike but long enough to feel adequate. This would also be great for trail running. Love the feeling of walking/running through the tall grasses with the vast open space. There is no shade on the trail, so going earlier in the day to avoid the heat is ideal. As of early September the wildflowers are beginning to die back, but imagine they would be quite a sight in the peak of summer/early spring.

I would wear pants on this trail it goes down to single person and the bushes are over grown. Small downside is a chunk of the road is right next to the street. All uphill in the beginning and then down hill for the end. Good Sunday morning trail!

This trail is easy, not ‘moderate’. Nice little trail.

saw 2 snakes today, 1 a rattlesnake. freaking scary!! but cool. it smells like fire the 1st half a mile or so because of the recent fire here. looks like halloween. both sun and shade. this is one of my favorite hikes and I highly recommend!

Not a ton of shade so during the summer I could see this trail being rough. We had a horrible rain storm yesterday so it was really muddy. Ben he’s thru out for rest if needed.

Great for running! Great views beautiful homes and farms. Definitely coming back
