A scenic and quiet loop with some rewarding views at the top.
Features: Views — Wildlife
An easy to intermediate run with some elevation gain to the top on Eagle's View Trail
. Running Elkhorn Trail
and Oxen Draw Trail
in a clockwise direction leads into the forest and allows runners to climb Eagle's View Trail
where the best views of the park are located.
When the weather is clear, Pikes Peak can be seen in the south. Also watch for wildlife such as deer and birds at this point. On the way down through Raven's Roost Trail
, the tread is more like a small service road. Most of the trails are in the shade, which is very nice during the summer.
There are inner loops for shorter distances, but the best view may not be seen if you don't run the full loop on Eagle's View Trail
