"This beautiful and popular hike leads through the foothills west of Colorado Springs. An old-growth pine forest, cool mountain streams, and spectacular vistas are the main attractions on this hike. You can hike this loop counterclockwise, but the description goes in a clockwise direction. Enjoy: This is one of the best hikes near Colorado Springs."
