The parking lot has plenty of room, but probably fills up on weekends. Bathrooms are are the end of the lot, just past the trailhead.

Starting at the informational kiosk, the trail crosses a creek. Immediately across the creek, turn left on an unmarked trail. At less than .1 miles turn right onto the Elkhorn Trail.
Bob Falcone
After approximately another .2 miles, the Elkhorn Trail meets the Oxen Draw Trail. Bear left onto Oxen Draw.

A few hundred feet later, the Oxen Draw Trail meets the Ravens Roost and Eagle View Trails. Bear left onto the Eagle View Trail.
Bob Falcone
The trail climbs steeply over a series of switchbacks, and at approximately 1.85 miles the view opens up at "Eagle View", with great views of the surrounding area, and Pikes Peak in the distance. From here, after a short relatively flat section, the trail starts a long, winding down hill.
Bob Falcone
The trail becomes a wide two-track, winding through the forest, and eventually becomes the Ravens Roost Trail. When the Ravens Roost Trail meets the Elkhorn Trail, bear left onto the Elkhorn Trail.
Bob Falcone
The Elkhorn Trail eventually meets the opposite end of the Oxen Draw Trail. Stay on the Elkhorn Trail until you return to the trailhead/parking lot, for a total distance of about 4.25 miles.
