Description

From the parking area on Centennial Cone Road you'll experience wide open spaces with long views of meadows that dominate right from the parking lot. The trail winds through these meadows and climbs a few short but very manageable hills. The trail is fun as an out/back or can be used as part of a big loop that connects all of the trails in the park.

Flora & Fauna

Large meadows will dominate the landscape. I would expect great wildflower blooms here.
