August 18, mountain bikes the trail with my 13 year old. We loved the trail, absolutely beautiful and fun. We are from Michigan so this was definitely different than what we are use too. It was a blast and I would recommend it to anyone.

Nice trail close to town with rocks and nature. Very enjoyable.

Great short & quick hike.

Love but be cautious of rattle snakes !

No swimming except for dogs while training.

Very pretty drive from Fort Collins to this great, dog-friendly trail. Nice breeze , wild flowers, birds singing, some people fishing, couple paddle-boarding...a few hikers made a really nice Sunday outing. I’ll definitely go again.

This trail is great if you want to watch people play golf. I would recommend devils backbone instead.

this is my very first trail I walked alone. Perfect for beginners. I broke a good sweat and enjoyed the beautiful view at the top. houses kinda "ruined" the scenery aspect of the walk but, the hike was worth it. took me maybe 20 minutes to get to the top. very short but, like I said, perfect for the beginner!

Great hike for all levels and ages of hikers. No shade. Be cautious of snakes. Hear they are there but in the numerous times I have been out there thankfully have only encountered one time. We stay on trail though. Its pretty heavily trafficked.

Good trail my 5yo and me being 7 months pregnant did it fine, while my 2yo walked the way back. he was carried on a toddler hiking backpack the way up. We did see one rattlesnake

Lovely on a cool morning. Easy walk with a few slopes.

Nice place to hike but I won't go again as a rattlesnake crossed the trail about 5 feet in front of me. Lots of areas with very tall grass and narrow paths with lots of places for those rattlers to be. I understand it is their home and I will leave it to them.

Good short hike for kids and all ages.

Easy afternoon hike

Definitely an easy hike, nice gravel trail around the lakes. Last time I was out I saw plover, killdeer, white pelicans, lots of red-winged blackbirds, hawks, baby geese, and a song bird I didn’t recognize but couldn’t get enough markings to positively ID. The diversity of the natural area makes this a great place for different types of birds if you’re out early.

I wouldn’t call this a moderate hike definitely on the easy side but has pretty views around the lakes

The trail itself is nice but as mentioned, it is pretty developed. A great picture at the keyhole is ruined by many homes behind it. I imagine it was a great view prior to that. Definitely a popular trail though, plenty of traffic. Easy enough.

Went hiking with a few friends! We go there early (8 am) to avoid the heat & (hopefully) snakes. We didn’t run into any snakes thankfully! I really enjoyed the cleanliness of the park, wildflowers, & beautiful views!

Glad the city put this trail in. Used to walk "cross-country" to get to the top of the Butte. This trail provides a nice loop around the Butte but also a spur to the summit. Nice view from the top.

Nice trail in close to town. The segment along the river is especially scenic.

Great views! Great weather! Beautiful flowers. Really enjoyed the hike. Did not love all the residential.

Great place to hike and walk your dog, but I won't go there again until the fall. A couple of days ago, my dog was bitten by a rattlesnake. Fortunately, she will be fine. The rattlesnake was in the grass, not too far from the trail. I didn't even hear it rattling. If you do go there during the summer months, be extremely careful, but I wouldn't recommend walking one's dog there during the summer. Too bad, because it's such a beautiful place.

Beautiful place, but watch out for rattlesnakes.

A fun hike close to town, gets pretty hot in the summer though. Little shade.

Excellent trail for kids! A stroller with large off-road wheels would also work.

Great running trail. Ran from devil's backbone to horsetooth reservoir. Lots of snakes so stay alert!

Easy, yet very enjoyable hike! Great trail to bring my dog on, she loved it! Would definitely be great for all types of activities! Will be making a trip back soon!

Scenic, not difficult. I added on the Laughing Horse Loop for a total hike of 6.2 miles.
