“A short lollipop with some nice views that you can hike any time of the year.”— Kristen Arendt
Ascend another 1/2 mile on varying smooth and rocky singletrack. When you come to the Eagle Wind Loop, you can choose to hike in either direction. You'll head through pleasant wildflower-covered meadows. Along the way, there are benches and interpretive signs explaining the flora, fauna and history of the area.
The trail levels out a bit on top of the mesa and offers views of the Front Range, Continental Divide, and Eastern Plains. There is a brief section with views of Meeker, Longs, and the Twin Sisters Mountains.
A great variety of plants with the highlights being prickly poppies, locoweed, asters, larkspur, coral bells, and sage. Some ponderosa pine and juniper up on the hillside.
