Fantastic trail with sweeping views of Rocky Mountain front range to the west and the Great Plains to the east. Trail climbs steadily and is in decent shape apart from areas where the trail crosses open grassland. In some places the trail disappears nearly completely aside from telltale signs of trampled grass. A short walk from the first saddle to the east reveals a great promontory for views to the east. Continue climbing up to where the trail dead ends at Blindhorse Creek. At the dead end, walk left to the crest of a hill, where you'll be treated to an "amphitheater" of Rocky Mountains sweeping more than 180 degrees.
Trail offers beautiful views of Gibson Reservoir and surrounding mountains. First 1-2 miles of trail runs near summer homes but soon after becomes very isolated. Trail is in very poor condition with numerous trees blocking path. Also, after approximately 4 miles, the trail becomes indistinguishable with the various game trails throughout the area. Signs are almost totally not present, so getting lost would be quite easy.
