Legion Park Trail Map (Google Maps)

Directions:  From Boulder, head east on Arapahoe Rd (Hwy 7).  The trail head in off Arapahoe Road, just past Naropa University

Are you looking for a short hike with a view of Valmont Reservoir, the train tracks, AND the refinery?  Then this hike's for you!

Maybe there is a great view of the mountains from Legion Park, there is a sign that tells you which peaks you are looking at.  Unfortunately for me, the only view I had was of cloud and industry.  That being said, it is a nice park.  There are not many places to hike around Valmont Reservoir and this loop is a nice one, it's good for kids and offers a good view of the reservoir.  I'll have to come back when it's nice out and see if the mountain view is worth it.
