Description

The first mile is nearly level, leading North out of Woodland Park along the edge of the timber. Then it crosses a stream and forks where a sign describes the loop ahead as being 3 3/4 miles. Turning right and traveling upstream along a narrow meadow for about 1.5 miles. Climbing to the top of the ridge, it loops back to the west along the ridge, offering spectacular views of Pikes Peak and Ute Pass. The descent from this ridge is the steepest section. Turn right at the fork and you are on your way back.
