Description

Head south a short distance out of the parking area to find the signed route where the loop begins. The loop includes a wide-open experience on the edge of the hogback overlooking a valley with views of the Chatfield Reservoir. A 1.1-mile, hard-surface connector through a residential area completes the circle.
