Description

This trail is fairly straightforward - it's mostly flat and full of small, and sometimes loose rocks. At the end of the Doudy Draw trail, this trail begins mostly south through fairly open forest. You'll catch interesting viewpoints through the trees as you move along.

The trail loops around back to the east and eventually northeast all the way to the eastern end of Flatirons Vista North. From this high point, there are expansive views out over the plains. The option also exists to cross highway 93 here to meet up with the east Marshall Mesa trail system.
