Description

This is a connector road used throughout the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge. It may be used for access between the Lindsay Ranch Loop and the Walnut Creek Loop on the north side of the Refuge. It climbs almost undetectably from east to west up to the Ranch Loop. It also forms the northern portion of the Woman Creek Loop with a slightly steeper climb alongside South Woman Creek.

This climb also makes a pleasant descent although the descent on the south side of Woman Creek Loop is better. The middle portion between Lindsay Ranch Loop and Woman Creek Loop is flat and straight except for two short and steep whoopdees.

Eventually, this trail is planned to connect the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge with Rocky Mountain National Park. Currently, the Rocky Flats portion runs between the northeast corner of the Walnut Creek Loop and the Walnut Creek Loop at Highway 128. An overpass is planned on Indiana Street and an underpass at Highway 128. More info at rockymountaingreenway.org and jeffco.us.

Not much to get excited about here on any of these loops. Only bumped it up to an easy intermediate because of a couple of very steep hills. 14mi — 2h 20m
