Overview

Features: Views — Wildflowers
Family Friendly: An easy loop with with interpretive signs.

Description

The Braille Trail has interpretive signs in braille and waist-high guide wire designed for blind hikers. This trail is informative for everyone though!

From the parking area, the trail has a shallow descent/ascent on a wide singletrack. There is a guide wire along the entire route and information panels every 20 yards or so. At the halfway point, you take a right turn (if going clockwise) to finish the last half of the loop.

There is a bench situated to see the Continental Divide through the trees about 3/4 of the way around the loop.
