Beautiful trail. Takes you all the way to Roxborough State Park. Very lightly used.

Well designed

Great trail! No one around even on Labor Day Weekend. The first 2 miles are gradual uphill but the rest is sweet sweet rolling single track.

The trail doesn't quite have scenic views but it is a good moderate trail nonetheless. If you plan on continuing to Roxborough park via Sharptail trail, bring some protection against the sun because the trail is pretty much open space all the way.

The trails don’t have great signage and sometimes your not sure if the road your on is where you should be. I suggest if your going by yourself make sure you tell someone where your riding and make time for wrong turns. The climbs can be difficult at times depending on the erosion or root situation. All in all I love these trails. Lots of long climbs and equally Long descent. Wildlife can also be surprising. Lions, tigers, foxes, coyote, deer elk and bears to start with.

Great loop trail. Largely shaded, with minimal traffic. Mostly bikers coming through. Easy incline.

I believe this is also Segment 1 of the Colorado Trail. Do it!!!

*The map shows it’s right before rampart range road, but it’s actually right after (on the right)*

Great trail! Very wide so great for groups, and you get some cardio with the hills but nothing too strenuous. Little shade so bring lots of water.

Another trail, no dogs??

Nice wide trail. We did about 3 miles and enjoyed the view and flowers the whole way.

Hot and Dry.. pack lots of water because there is none till the fire house. Shade is rare... sunblock for sure. Real nice views though.

they say the burn area is not a place to see..It is beautiful as it recovers.

A pretty decent off road trail that isn’t too far from the city.

Views were ok. Trail didn’t always feel like it was clearly marked. I’d recommend alt trails.

I absolutely loved this trail! It's in great condition, very little muddy or snowy spots although I only did about 5 miles of it starting from South Platt area before turning aroud. The elevation gain is surprisingly easy, lots of switchbacks, you don't realize how high is you get until you hit the top! The views from up there are stunning and there are some great places to just sit and look at the view! There's a good sized dirt lot to park in that has a bathroom (not really upkept at the moment) and both times I've been out this way there's been plenty of parking but that could change with summer coming. Take a bit of caution though, a mountain biker told me there were some cougar tracks a bit farther down the trail!

Hiked the first four miles of this segment from the Platte River trailhead. Wasn't too hot, and there wasn't hardly another soul on the trail. Staggering views of the wildfire scar. No ice, no snow, no mud, but lots of crunchy gravel.

In summer.......it’s like going through the bowels of hell! Burn scar for most of the trail with no shade or cover! Definitely bring a wide brimmed hat and carry water. Fill up at the fire station! Beautiful vistas but brutal to get to.

Didn’t get a chance to do this hike, since the trail is closed until April 30th, 2018.

2nd review. Finally came back to finish this trail. It’s a great hike. We took it out to the turn around but then kept going to Roxborough Park. Beautiful views and a good moderate hike. Great trail 1/12/18. Fun and very few people.

Brutal in summer. No water. hike/bike way early to beat the heat. just passed through on bikepacking trip. wide open views for miles.

Fantastic Trail! It’s great even in the winter when there’s not much snow!

Beautiful hike. It’s a super well maintained forest service road. You could drive a tiny car down this road.
Loved the hike, saw no one else. Beautiful, easy incline. Took the Colorado Trail back to the car instead of the road like the app had.

Cool drive on unmaintained dirt roads through the woods up to the trail head, but FS348 is closed Dec - April, so we didn’t actually get to do the trail as described here. Will come back in May to check this out!

Initial climb is a series of switch-backs, after first mile you hit the remnants of a forrest fire and you're in exposed terrain. After another mile (so at MM 2+) you hit the ridge line and are back in beautiful forrest.

Ran the trail in December '17 so started out cold/cool then warmed-up. Trail in great shape -- limited water rut, well marked, zero snow and no ice.

this trail should be changed from moderate to easy. a unicycle would do fine here. it seems they've been piling/removing old dead trees and graded the trails in the area to bring in heavy equipment. had great fall colors and ran pretty high speed which was fun. i took this to 362, rule ridge, 364, manchester creek. if you'd like to see a video of the trip i have one up at:

I did this hike in the opposite direction shown here and started from Waterton Canyon Road. It is about 6 miles of dirt road before connecting with the Colorado Trail. Wonderful for running- very slight uphill if you're going from east to west and lots of room on the dirt road to avoid others. Follows the river the entire way and feels safe. There are bathrooms almost every mile. Once it hits the Colorado Trail it gets steeper and was difficult to run. Very exposed- bring water! Saw TONS of big horn sheep!

Water. Water. Water. Bring plenty. This section of the trail has no water sources except for the beginning at the South Platte and then again (if you are hiking through) at the end at the Firehouse/Station. This trail takes you through a large section of the forest that recently was burned in a forest fire. But the undergrowth is coming back and it's still a scenic route all along the way. Because much of the trail is exposed (not a lot of cover from the trees) bring plenty of sunscreen, and of course your rain gear!
