Well marked trail system where you can connect to several trails to individualize the length. Mostly non-technical trails with some gentle inclines, but you can definitely feel the altitude if you aren’t used to it.

Hiked the deer and cutover to the lynx trail earlier in the month, but did this entire trail just a few days ago. Trail had a few elevated paths, but the majority is easy. It is a solid 4.7 miles, so it’s a great walk/hike. Had to watch for a few mountain bikers, otherwise it was relatively quiet with the exception of passing a couple of other hikers.

Nice, easy pace. You can continue onto other trails, or you can shorten your hike at certain points. We took the Deer trail to the Lynx trail because we could see rain and eventually hear thunder in the distance. This is a nice option and allowed us to complete our hike before the storm hit. Not difficult at all. Easy with kids and our leashes dog.
Pretty views.

Steep at the top but quickly levels off to moderate. Continue across Domingo to Lower Free Flight for fun rollers and curves, all the way to where it joins up with Domingo for the rest of the way to the base area.

This trail has a lot of twist and turns throughout the area. Always be on the lookout for the unexpected. Keep a close eye on bear watch because they can be just as curious as we are. Bear spray is a staple just as foods would be. Beautiful beyond your wildest dreams, with breath taking landscapes. Watch for plants that can be or will rub you and make you itch. The Cimarron Lake is spectacular. Just enjoy the hike and the skies at night light up in a way that will have you dreaming of more.

Thanks
