We hiked Plymouth Creek Trail to Plymouth Mountain Trail. We took the long side of the loop, and there were some great views of Red Rocks and Denver (Please note the views were definitely better here than at the scenic overlook at the very top). There were barely any other hikers on this trail, but plenty of mountain bikers. It was a bit frustrating how they would come flying around the corner out of no where without giving warning. The trail was so narrow it was hard to get out of the way as well. Something else I think is important to mention is that a decent portion of the trail is not shaded - it can get very hot. Plan on wearing sunscreen and bring plenty of water. Overall, I'd recommend this hike if you're looking for something close to Denver.
