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

Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

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.

I rode this downhill today and thought it was lovely. I don't know what it looked like in 2014, but I did see some evidence of rerouting. Sep 17, 2017
