“A wide trail that follows the ridgeline above Greenland Open Space.”

This trail splits off of the Greenland Trail approximately 1.2 miles north of Palmer Lake. While not technically challenging, its long grades and steady 6% climb can be aerobically taxing. Once up at the ridgeline, the trail undulates as it climbs gradually northward. There are several fun, fast descents along this trail.

Eventually, it merges again with the Greenland Trail approximately 1 mile south of the Greenland Open Space trailhead.
