  • Nice, easy hike. Beautiful view from the Ridge. Beware of rattle snakes though (really). Also, DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED & rangers are there often to enforce this.
  • Challenging hill climbs and varied terrain. Great for proprioception training. Parking lot can be at full capacity at times. No potable water.
  • The bike down the ridge is amazingly fun. Though getting up the ridge isn't easy on a bike. Incline is a bit much for me. Though I'm not in shape.
  • No dogs allowed, just fyi. Otherwise a fantastic trail once you get up to the ridge and down into the valley.
  • Fun place to MTB! One of the rare free parking lots in Colorado. Beautiful views at the top!
