This is runner nirvana. Nice, soft trails with a decent amount of challenge and excellent views. You can easily add side trails and loops to increase your run to 8 to 10 miles.

I wanted a change of scenery and this place was close by. I enjoyed it. Its a decent hike. Probably not one I'll come back to time and time again though.

Nice views for the ease of the hike. My now-roommates took me on this one when I visited, definitely helped convince me to move to Colorado!

We love this trail. We have done it a few times with kids (ages 6-11) and it was fun for all. Beautiful views and foliage. Nicely maintained. Small parking area gets full fast and its a popular trail so don't expect to feel secluded if that's what you are looking for.

First time hiking this with my Akita. LOVED the trails - you get plenty of sunshine and shade. Nicely groomed trails with superb vistas. As horses and mountain bikers are welcome, and as a courtesy to all, if you take small children and / or dogs, please keep them close to you as there are many blind corners - keeps all safe. Very, very nice trail system - we will definitely return!
