"This is the perfect weekend run because it has very little traffic, which seems to crowd nearby Rampart Reservoir. Additionally, this route offers great views of Pikes Peak and Ute Pass. Grade: Moderate, except for a root-filled section just prior to the high point. Also, watch out for a steep descent from the high point over loose gravel."

"Here is a relaxing hike on a lollipop trail looping through a nice mix of native trees, large granite boulders, small valleys, and a ridge affording views of Pikes Peak and the Sawatch Range. One long climb will stretch legs and lungs a bit; otherwise grades and crowds are moderate on this quiet trail. Woodland Park is right down the road with all kinds of eateries, shops, and other distractions. Rampart Reservoir is only a few extra miles east, with more trails and opportunity for water-related activities."

Don't let the trail head fool you. This is quite a nice trail once you get in past the few houses. We went off and to the right after crossing the water and the wildflowers were amazing.

Once we got to the top though, it was a bit of a let down as you follow the path under the electric wires. Next time I think we will turn this into an out and back trail.

Located in Woodland Park, Lovell Gulch is a great hike for hikers of all levels. There are many trails that take you from ridges to see a 360 view of the area to the many gulches and forested areas. Views spanning from Pikes Peak to the Collegiates are outstanding. We hike this trail weekly are hardly run into other hikers.
