I love this trail, it's not hard and you get a lot of different types of scenery during the hike.

This is a nice loop hike. The only thing missing is a stream for the pups. Mountain bikers need to let you know they are coming fast around the turns. Thank you!

One of our favorites close to home. Easy up to top then loop with great views. Usually busy and dogs off leash...

Beautiful views. Good for dogs. Not too difficult of a hike. We did the full loop and it seemed a bit long at the end.

Great views. Several picnic tables with a well groomed trail. Easy to hike and fun! This trail is definitely worth checking out if your passing by on I25.

This trail would be great to take out of state friends and family who aren't used to higher altitude. Some rather impressive views are common, and some diversity between landscape hiked.

There were a handful of non-motor mountain bikes, but folks seemed polite.
