Description

Starting at the parking area at the entrance to the Ken Caryl Valley, the Cathy Johnson Trail connects to Deer Creek Canyon Road and allows access to South Valley Park via the Columbine Trail.

This gentle trail climbs gradually between the Dakota and Lyons Hogback mountains, offering a wonderful feeling of isolation, and offering great views of the area.
