Actually kind of a nice little OS. More trees than I expected. Not really a height of summer site unless it is early or late in the day. Great for early or late season though on nice weather days.

Great hike near Lyons and Longmont just off Highway 66. Starts out up hill but has a nice loop at top. The views are spectacular.

I've been going for short hikes here for 15 years, but with the ever growing population it is not as pleasant as it used to be. Dogs are required to be on a leash, but every time I go there are those that feel the...More
