2015/3/28 - still icy in spots. REALLY crowded after 10:00 on a Saturday. Nice hike though.

This excellent "First hike of the season" hike has little elevation gain and, if you start early enough, you avoid people almost entirely. It does not offer breathtaking views or very much as far as anything other than a straight hike, but if are looking to get a few miles under your belt for the beginning of the season, this one is not off-the-beaten path and yet relatively unbusy and enjoyable.

Just got back from this trail, and loved it despite quite a bit of ice on the trail. If the weather stays sunny it should be ice free in a few days.

Fun descent or semi challenging climb.
Fairly smooth singletrack in most places.
A few rock gardens.
Very busy on weekends.

Eh, this 'trail' is more of a walking path in my opinion. Its super busy too.

Great trail. Spikes (Yak Traks) are highly recommended during winter, spring and late fall. The view of Mt Evans is good from just below the summit point

Great hike. Only saw 4 other people on the trails. Granted it was Friday and it was between 10 am and 1 - pm though. Packed snow on 98% of the trails. Definitely needed spikes or at the minimum, poles. Great views, beautiful sun and no wind. Perfect day! (And a stop at Cactus Jack's afterwards was the perfect ending to the day.)

I love this area! Granted, I haven't hiked all the trails yet but it has the best dog park I've seen in the Denver area.
