This is a great hike if you need to get out for the day! Great for dogs because of the many water crossings. Shade and sun is great too. Be cautious in the spring/early summer; snow can still be present past the boys camp. Can be muddy past boys camp but still passable.

This was a very nice hike, but the turn off is just BEFORE mile marker 9, not just after, if coming from the Loveland side! This caused us much confusion, but after driving many miles out of our way we finally found it, and enjoyed it very much. There are signs for a retreat up the road to take (51B).
