This was a really great day hike. It was the perfect length for me as this was my first hike this year. It was never difficult but I did get my heart beat up a fews times. It winds back into a wooded area that shaded me from the sun. Be sure to keep alert for the sound of bikers as they will come bombing through some of the really cool downhill single track areas. I went around it clockwise, it took a little over an hour without stopping but there are a number of benches along the trail that you could stop and enjoy the scenery. Nice short drive up Boulder Canyon to get to the trail head as well.

This is a nice relaxing loop of a trail that treads through pleasant meadows and pine forests. Even though we went on a Saturday it was still not particularly crowded. We will definitely be hiking this trail again.

This trail rocks! Even for a Saturday afternoon, it wasn't too crowded and it was a really fun, simple trail to hike with lots of scenic peaks, wildflowers, room for the dogs to sniff around, and historic relics as well. It seemed longer than a little over 3.2 miles, but then again we made frequent stops to "stop and smell the flowers." :) My boyfriend, I and our dogs will definitely hike this beautiful trail many times again and I would recommend it to families or people with dogs.

Nice altitude gain, just far enough out of town that it's not saturated with other people, beautiful views, good for hiking or mtn biking. FUN!
