“A five-mile loop through forested areas with open meadows and views of the Front Range Mountains.”— Richard Cota
Family Friendly Easy ride, lot's of people and horses on the trail.
Going clockwise from the parking lot, the first two miles of the trail are through meadows populated with stands of scrub oak. This portion of the trail descends about 400 feet. At the two-mile mark, the trail begins to climb and for the next two miles passes through a Ponderosa pine forest. A picnic area is located at mile three.
The trail climbs steadily for the last three miles, and after mile four passes through the top of a meadow before ending at the parking lot. Multiple side trails allow for a customized ride of varying distances. The trail provides numerous excellent views of the Front Range and the Palmer Divide.
