Park in the lot just to the south of the northern end of Horsetooth Reservoir. Head out of the lot to the north and cross the road to the east side of the road. The trail is probably best-completed counter-clockwise.
There are a few rock sections throughout the trail that deserve attention. The majority are at the 5 o'clock section of the loop. Otherwise, the trail is easy-going on fairly skinny singletrack.
