No shade and a lot of open space. Better for biking or running. Some inclines on a well defined trail with gravel maintenance in some spots. Sunscreen is advised and cattle do travel through the area. Horses would do well on this path, provide you can find parking for your horse trailer. Kids would be easy to keep in sight. Bike maintenance post at the Coalton Rd entrance.

This trail is a good workout. Trail had a few other bikers, a couple of runners, and a few hikers. The route consists of a lot of road and a fair amount of single track. The single track rewards you with some fun technical stuff and the roads allow you to take it a little easier. I’m from Texas so some of the climbs are steeper and longer than I’m used to but nothing too serious. Come out and enjoy.

We live nearby, and I walk my dog here multiple times a week. Great dog park, easy trail with great views. Lots and lots of bikers, and right near housing but still a great place for a walk. You can either walk a mile loop or the full 3.3 miles.

Not good for hiking pretty boring scenery no cover. Pretty cute prairie dogs in the beginning

Great flat place to walk with a great view.

Flat, dog friendly. Not a lot of shade though so be gentle on your pupper.

Fun trail for riding all-road or endurance bikes, but a little crowded with children and pets to safely bomb through. Still, a great local gravel trail for getting in a solid weekday ride - just take it a little slower and little more cautiously.

A couple nice sized bull snakes hangin around sunning themselves across the trail lately too...

Really nice ride overlooking green pastures with mountains in the background. Some of the ride is next to a stream and some is through cow fields. Nice variety!

Easy trail, good for after work walk and running

This is my 2-3 night per week exercise loop while the kids clean up dinner. It is very pretty and more of a neighborhood area. I add on some of the coal creek trail to make it an extra mile or so. Nice at sunset and sometimes you'll see coyotes.

Like most people have stated, this is an urban hike/walk. Flat land, well maintained wide trail. Quite a few dogs (adjacent to the dog park) and bikes. The dog owners are conscientious of picking up the dog byproducts so that is not an issue. Good view of the flatirons. Just went today so heat wasn’t an issue but due to the lack of trees (zero trees) I bet a hat and sunglasses are a must in the summer months. Regardless of the weather, it is always a good idea to bring plenty of water. Bottom line: Nice urban walk.

Great walking/jogging trail with great views. Can be a bit windy so dress for that.

Great flat walking trail with a terrific view of the mountains.

Great open well maintained trail on this huge hill with amazing views looking down on boulder and the flatirons and foothills. Trail starts right next to the dog park with a bunch of ways to loop around for shorter or longer routes. Not a lot of elevation change pretty flat the whole way. Had a kestrel following us tree to tree towards the end.

Loop not marked, got lost but still got 11+ miles on trail. nice trails, but if you're wanting to do the loop, take your map.

Overall great trail for a 14 mile run. Can get rocky at times but not too technical. Would recommend bug spray for marshy areas. Not much cover so it can get very hot.

Walk the pup here. No shade so best in the morning or evening.

First time walking this trail. I feel like it's better suited for bikers or horseback riders. The wide trail offers little ground cover; and it was HOT. Easy parking.

Good for a quick walk if you live close but don't make a special trip to check it out

Better for a light mountain bike than hiking. Pretty mellow but there is no shade. You do get pretty good views of the flatirons from the top.

There was a couple of benches with good views, but there were too many that if you sat there you could think you were in Kansas. There was one tree I liked too.

I love this trail. it's long enough for a decent workout, but short enough to not kill me for the day. the prairie and the mountain view is gorgeous. easy parking and a dog park. generally flat walking space.

Very pretty and spacious place to take your doggies to play :) and around the dog park there are more trails that are neat to walk around on as well.
I definitely enjoy this place

Such a beautiful park! Very large off-leash dog area which is nice for the pups. Many trails spanning the area, very scenic and easy to get to. Plenty of parking

Easy, flat prairie loop with the wind rustling across the grasses, gorgeous view of the Flatirons, however, the hideous power lines disturb said view. Decent walk for when you're lacking more time to drive further.

Granted we're not bicyclists. My wife and I walked here and wanted to see something pretty and nature-oriented. Instead it's dirt and rock. One star for easy parking access, another star for the cute groundhogs.
