Easy to moderate (due to length) hike with relatively little elevation change (This IS Colorado, and the hike unlike many other mountain hikes in the Front Range in that respect). The total distance encompasses two circular routes (Benjamin Loop & Canyon Loop) connected by a .75 mile link. It is essentially what can be described as a trail designed for mountain bikes (and, thankfully, on Wednesday and Friday, those bikes are prohibited). Great scenery throughout the trail, but better portions are on the Benjamin Loop. If you're tired from hiking up mountains in the Boulder area, give this trail a try.
