Ok short hike on the front range. However, I was forever having to drag my dogs away from piles that other owners have left- not pleasant!

Beautiful views, easy walk.

Nice hike with just a little short uphill that’s a little rocky but easy. Lots of people and dogs. Parking lot has restroom, trash & recycling, & picnic tables. Be warned that parking lot is small and even though it may seem reasonable to park in the area signed for trailers as several people were doing, DO NOT do it! I got a $35 parking ticket :(

Pretty spot, but the loop trail is under construction. Now a short out and back. Check construction status before going.

Best trail in town.

Easy walk, mostly clear of snow, beautiful views

Every now and then we pick this trail as an alternative to Eagle Wind (on the other side of the road) though generally Eagle Wind is nicer imo. There's a daredevil pilot who hangs out here a lot so you might get to see some of his acrobatics, which is kinda fun.
As is true in this whole area, there are a lot of rattlers here so keep your ears open and your dog close.

As city trails go, this is a really good one. Excellent views of Longs Peak, the Indian Peaks, etc. Great birds: blue heron, pelicans, coots, merganzers and a year-round nesting pair of bald eagles. It's a vibrant city park with lots of people having fun fishsing, supping, kayacking, slacklining, hammocking, biking. There's even a short spur up to an old farmstetad museum where you can hang out with goats, ponies, cows and chickens. If you live in the area, make a point of visiting this park .

Easy trail, narrow in some parts. Very dog friendly which was awesome. Good casual hike.

nice for what it is...a local, flat, pretty 3.5 mile walk

Definitely a favorite spot to take our dogs off leash. Views are as beautiful. Usually a few people fishing and lots of other friendly dogs. If your dog likes to swim, he'll probably just ask you to leave him there and come back tomorrow...dock for jumping and loads of easy entry places.

Easy flat walk around a reservoir with open space all around and flatirons and foothills in the background to the west. Saw a bald eagle and lots of waterfowl.

I am not sure why I chose this trail on the VERY windy day, Although this is shorter than the other trail, the footing is much harder with many many many rocks. Did not have much view as the clouds rolled in.

Beautiful sunset walk around Coot Lake with amazing views of the flatirons in the distance.

Nice flat neighborhood lake

Not as easy as you'd think from easy rating, but definitely worth the effort

There is now a 5 and a 1/2 mile loop out on the prairie here that I would rate 5 stars for horseback riding and jogging

There is a new 5 and a 1/2 mile loop out on the prairie that is excellent for horseback riding and jogging .

Decent, easy hike. Not a lot shade, but a few benches to rest along the trail.
