One of the best hikes near Denver

This hike was excellent. Well shaded, full of variety, beautiful vistas, and a blend of flat/up/downhill trails make this the perfect hike. The hike is an out-and-back, so you can stay on the trail as long or as little as you'd like. The trail had quite a few dogs, several mountain bikers, and was well populated with hikers. Park at the Nature Center and walk across the street to start the hike. We will definitely be back!
