Description

This short trail crosses a number a small, steep creeks, and overlooks the first couple miles of the Colorado River. There is a beautiful waterfall at the Lady Creek, and magnificent views over the Little Yellowstone Canyon. Be prudent if you adventure off trail to the edges of the canyon as there is slippery dirt and loose rocks.

The trail finally reaches the Grand Ditch Road, which continues smoothly for about a mile to La Poudre Pass.
