Trail shared by Nick Wilder

A steep connection between Soda Park trail and the Colorado Trail.

Description

Though not a destination by this area's (high) standards, this provides a useful connection between better trails. It climbs (or descends) quite steeply though wide open meadows with great views and seasonal wildflowers. The trail is badly eroded in some areas (as of 2014) and needs attention before excessive social trails braid off of it.
