Description

Mesa Top Trail is a great singletrack trail that connects to Indian Point Trail #715 and Flowing Park Trail #715.1A. The trail consists of gradual downhill on the way out, with gradual uphill on the way back. This trail is moderately technical with rocks and roots, but is mostly manageable. Parking is plentiful at the Mesa Top parking lot.

Flora & Fauna

The trail weaves in and out of aspen and pine trees with various overlooks towards Cedaredge below. Gorgeous wildflowers cover the area in mid to late summer. Wildlife can consist of deer, fox, and various small critters.

Hiked about halfway through where the park ranger said is a nice view of the lakes below. They are a little dry right now, but still pretty. 4mi
