  • 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!
  • Keep your valuables out of your vehicle. There have been several vehicular burglaries in the parking lot. This is a pleasant quick hike to the ridge. The trail continues down the other side and loops through the beautiful valley over the ridge. Few folks travel down the other side. This is a fun mtn bike ride.
  • Not a bad trail, but can get very busy on weekends and weeknights. Connects to Blue Sky/Devil's Backbone. Be aware, no dogs allowed whatsoever (which is not the case for the rest of the trail system around - not sure why it is here).
  • fun Mountain biking. Lots of loose rock
