This is a pretty well maintained trail. It does connect to the Coyote Ridge trail and can go all the way to Horsetooth Reservoir. Don't forget to see the Keyhole while you're up there.

Beautiful hike. Can’t go very far on horseback until it gets extremely rocky. If you only care about riding a few miles, then horses are good, but go during the week. Weekends are too crowded for horses. Watch for bikers!

Easy and enjoyable hike! Watch out, there are some natural stone steps that could be slippery. It’s a little disappointing to see houses when you reach the top of the hillside.

I love this area so much. It's great for a short hike or you can go for a long hike. The views are beautiful. I have never hiked this in the hot summer. I love it in the fall the best because it's not crowded...More

Took several out of town guests on a hike here and they were awed at the scenery. The only downside is the plethora of horses and bikers that have to share the trail, it can get a little overwhelming at times.

This is a fun trail to walk, run or bike. We go with dogs and it is always a good time. It can be made easy or difficult depending on what you want that day. Highly recommended

I've only seen dogs on leashes - but it doesn't mean everyone abides the law.

It is walkable, just mind your pace, and realize that you are at altitude, which can have a significant effect on some people. Be conservative - some expend too much time and energy going out, and don't turn back soon... More
