Really nice loop minutes from Boulder. Definitely go counterclockwise, since the bikers seem to go clockwise.

Awesome loop! Trail was mostly good, some snow and mud in places

Completely slush covered - spikes helpful but still pretty slippery

Absolutely gorgeous hike. Populated in some areas but nothing too bad. Some absolutely brutal uphills right out of the canyon to be aware of!
Oct 1, 2020
walked uphills at the beginning and got grown cramp around mile 4. otherwise should do this again!

Large portions of this trail are very loose, sandy and steep so wear shoes that have some good tread. The river is a amazing! A more difficult hike.

Super nice hike. We saw almost no one which was great. We had our two dogs with us and they enjoyed the hike as well! Only a few muddy spots.
Mar 23, 2019
Beautiful views various terrain from ice, to hard pack , to mud, to gravel. Spikes were needed on 60% of trail especially the step climb from river

9.1 miles, 4 hours (8 am- 12 pm)- extreme icy spots. The stairs were very icy. Muddy and dry in other spots! Great scenery- river was amazing!
Mar 10, 2019
Great hike! Superb variety of views and terrain. Trail markings not great at times, I got a bit lost on the backside. Icy in places, glad I had spikes

Our to the stream and back with the pups. Very hot!

Running counter-clockwise is mostly uphill and difficult if you’re not acclimatized to the altitude. Beautiful trail. Very well maintained.
Jul 24, 2018
Beautiful, diverse trail! We went counter-clockwise.
Jul 22, 2018
Amazing, definitely go counter clockwise
Jul 10, 2018
The new route adds just under a quarter mile but provides a diverse forested path instead of the straight gravel road, Well worth the drive up there!
Jun 30, 2018
Trail in great shape and hard enough to prove that I'm not, and still really enjoyable. Lots of variation in difficulty and scenery too.
Jun 16, 2018
Great trail! Followed CCW which meant going DOWN the stairs.
Jun 10, 2018
Challenging but overall not too hard. Did the loop the opposite way of recommended. One very steep section.
May 30, 2018
First hike with Boulder group.
May 27, 2018
Meetup group; reasonable pace; great weather for it; 20min break for lunch
Apr 14, 2018
20 mile day. Hurt but satisfying
Apr 1, 2018
A new fav. Moderate pace counterclockwise. Quiet on a Sunday morning April 1, light dusting of snow made the rocks slippery but just go slow
Mar 17, 2018
Did with vivi after staying in boulder

Love this trail. Beautiful views the whole way and nice spots to relax by the river.
Sep 4, 2017

Aug 19, 2017
Hiked this with Jamie. Beautiful!!!
Jul 29, 2017
Moderate, went CC, avoided strenuous uphill. Probably great for jogging
Jul 8, 2017
"New trail access" section adds some length and reduces the amount of dirt road
Jul 8, 2017
Beautiful trail, all clear. Some nice views, awesome creekside spots
Apr 18, 2017
Went counter-clockwise along the southern route. I lost the trail at the river. It was just challenging enough to be fun
Apr 15, 2017
Long beautiful hike with very challenging uphill areas. Come prepared and bring lots of water. Beautiful views!
Jul 13, 2016
Found Mountain Lion footprints by the river

Great longer trail. Lots of mountain bikers, but beautiful spots to sit next the the creek.
Jun 21, 2015
Beautiful rolling hike! A lot of great scenery, not too steep.
