Amazing Sunrise Hike

This hike was absolutely gorgeous! There were already some wildflowers which made everything that much prettier. It's a huge open space so the dogs had a blast as well. Super easy and close to Denver so it made a perfect quick morning hike.

Definitely agree with a previous reviewer-- veer to the right at the entrance for those mountain views! There are a number of trail options and lengths, definitely check the maps! A fairly easy hike, good for beginners and children.

Start On The Right

Parking lot available. Parking is $5 - cash only. However if your vehicle is registered in Boulder county then it is free. Once you enter through the gates, I suggest veering towards the right to capture the mountain views. We started on the left side and our backs were to the mountains when we did the loop. It is not steep - fairly flat. Lots of bikers and walkers. Beautiful view.
