trail running
4 days ago

Nice easy run, I went Feb 17th,2018 and it was muddy in some spots. Pretty windy in the open space towards the end of the loop trail. Dogs are allowed on a leash so I’ll be back with the pupper once the trail dries up.

Great afternoon loop! Hunting is common, so wearing bright colors would be a good idea.

The trail is not identified at all. I had to ask a lady who used the trail regularly. She lives near the trail.

If you want to experience where the locals do their single-track trail-running, this is it. It’s about 7 miles RT if you take the trail until it drops into the blue sky section. Lots of rolling trail but with many sections of loose rock and polished slabs that take nimble footwork. Moderate hills are perfect for those looking to improve their uphill running as it doesn’t last too long or is super steep in any spot. Great place to make running a habit!

This was our first hike near the foothills of the Co. Rockies. What beautiful day for this trail; there only a handful people and the weather was perfect. The 'keyhole' is a nice feature along this easy hike. The trail has map location settings along route making it extremely easy to follow.

Awesome family hike, I cannot wait to go back.

One of my favorite hikes.

This was a very easy walk. We saw lots of people and a lot of people had their dogs. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. There’s a LT of uneven rocks that you have to pay attention to but overall this was a pretty hike.

Really nice. More trails available than what is currently listed here. Slightly rocky but easy terrain for all ages and activities!

Nice hike for all ages. The reservoir is very low at the moment, so the stretch around the lake during the last half is not as visually appealing. Stll, the first half loop through the trees is worth it, and you can simply do the loop by the dam and still have a great day.

This was a really pretty hike, a little windy the day I went. An elementary school field trip was arriving as I pulled in. I set off immediately with my dog to try and stay ahead of them but unfortunately wasn't able to spend much time at the Keyhole (which is beautiful, absolutely gorgeous) as they managed to catch up with us. I think I'll try this hike again next spring, I've been told the wildflowers that pop up along the hills are really pretty.

The next time I do this trail, I will park on Rossum, then connect to the two Mariana Butte trails for a nice loop. For an urban trail, I really liked it. Not a lot of traffic and super close to Loveland.

Next time I would connect to the other Mariana Butte trail and the Hogback trail. An easy urban hike.

Beautiful lake. Before heading up to the lake make sure you buy a day pass, we were uninformed and had to drive back down to buy our pass. We went November 19th 2017 the trail in some places was muddy. I will definitely be going again.

This is a great semi-urban Trail! There are some lovely 360 degree and mountain views. We enjoyed stepping into the keyhole. The farther in you get the rockier the trail is. That last Loop (Laughing Horse Loop) was pretty uneven and challenging on the feet, and I was wishing a mountain biker would pass by so I could watch. I hear this trail is one to avoid in the summer due to heat and snakes, but in November it was absolutely wonderful!

Nice trail, a bit narrow in some areas which made it challenging to hike with our kiddos and people wanting to pass. Everyone was very courteous which made up for the tight trail.

A very nice trail. I went on a Sunday afternoon and it was a little too crowded for my liking, so in the future I'd go earlier or on a weekday. Great family trail, dog and kid friendly.

There is a huge parking lot but I was lucky to find a spot. Although it was almost November, it was very warm and there was no shade. The geological features were amazing but the geological features underneath your hiking shoes were as interesting as the big rocks. If you plan to do this trail (and you should!), try to do it when it is not so hot as there is absolutely shade.
It is sad to see that you see many houses around this site.
