In my opinion, Hall Ranch is one of the best trails on the Front Range. I think some people may disagree with that but, hey, I don't care. I loved that trail and miss it now that I've moved east.
Hall Ranch is fast/flowy, has sections of technical climbing/descending through the rock garden, beautiful scenery with a great view of Mt. Meeker/Longs Peak at the top, can be linked with Heil Ranch via the Picture Rock connector trail, and is ridable even in the winter as it's largely exposed, so the snow melts quickly. Though a long ride for some, you can also ride to it from Boulder or Longmont via dirt roads to add miles to your ride.
