Trail shared by Tom Robson

A simple mix of doubletrack and dirt road that parallels highway 93.

Description

Although the hiking is straightforward on this section, it allows hikers to head back up north without using highway 93.

The southern end starts at a trailhead just off highway 93 and highway 128. Connect here with the Greenbelt Connector if you want to continue across to the western part of the Marshall Mesa trail system.

On the northern end, either branch ends up at the Community Ditch trail - stay left to meet up with that trail at highway 93 or stay right (as marked) to meet up by the more interesting rocky steps.

Can't figure out why this trail is rated a 2. It's a wonderful ultra-easy hike for families with children, with lots of parking at the trailhead, and it's very photogenic, with the flatirons to the west and the plains to the east. Not a tree to be had though, so go at sunrise/sunset and/or wear a hat! Sep 24, 2017

Hey Emily, add your own rating! This is the beauty of crowd-sourcing; one person's 1-star trail could be another's 5-star. Sep 25, 2017
