Easy to get to- 5 minutes from Loveland suburbs. Open grassland views and plenty of trail to hike. Interesting rock formations. Good for bringing out-of-towners on. Haven’t seen any rattlesnakes myself but I was warned there are a lot so I avoid bringing my dogs. Breezy and heavily trafficked.

Beautiful views! Flat ground with pavement and gravel. Nice and easy morning hike.

Definitely got my work out in. Rattlesnakes are still out, so be aware. I enjoyed that there was a separate trail for bikers and hikers. Worth exploring.

Great trail with alot of areas to roam around off-trail (within reason). They also have a smaller/shorter educational trail that is great for kids!

This trail is very heavily trafficked. There were loads of people on the foot trail on a Sunday. There is no shade, except up at the Keyhole, so bring water, a sun hat, and a sunscreen. My 5 year old whined a bit, because there is an incline, but he made it easily to the keyhole. It is a well maintained trail and will be nice in the cooler months and on weekdays.

This was a very nice, easy trail that we did in the early evening so it wasn’t too hot. Very well marked and beautiful views. Will definitely go back.

This is a beautiful and very easy trail. The unique rock formations are the primary feature but it’s a great trail for running or walking your dog too. There are a few signs about rattlesnakes, and other reviewer have mentioned seeing them, so be aware and stay on the trail. There is a another trail in very close proximity (starting at the same parking area) that is for biking only if that is of interest. There is some history here too, with a few signs explaining the mining that took place in the area. I know that some reviewers give every single trail that doesn’t suck a five-star rating. I’m a little more reserved in giving five stars, so this trail earned a solid four. However I met two of the “park rangers” - likely county park enforcement that were friendly, helpful, and informative. So I’m bumping up my experience on this trail to 4.5 stars out of 5. It’s really worth your time if you are in the area.

No shade was it's only fault. There are some rocky bits but easy enough to walk over. The views were lovely and the path was very easy to walk. Plenty of small Wildlife: bugs, birds, snakes. Be aware.

According to the city of Loveland website the trail is closed until mid November. That means don’t use it. Of course, if rules don’t matter and DON’T apply to you, then do whatever the #%¥&!! you want...

Good easy relaxing hike

Pleasant little walk-about.

Really nice hike at the Pinewood Reservoir. The map that I found at the top of the dam parking area called the hike I went on the Shoshone trail. It listed this loop trail as 2.7 miles, though I got a little confused at about the half way mark on which was the main trail so ended up retracing my way up. I’m a flat-lander and I would consider this a moderate trail as there was some decent incline to it, but I’ll bet someone used to steep climbs would say it was easy. It was a really nice hike through a semi-wooded, hilly trail, with nice views (not jaw dropping majestic, but much better than I expected on the front range). I only saw one other hiker during a midweek Sept day. I did take my two dogs with me and they did fine. There is a bathroom across the dam but I don’t recall if there was a water stations, and you will need to pay a $9 daily fee to use this Larimer county open space (it’s called the Ramsay-Shockey Open Space).

The Round Mountain Nature Trail is definitely now CLOSED for restoration. Both the parking lot and the trailhead are clearly marked closed. There are work vehicles in the parking lot. Looking forward to when it reopens.
