Description

You can hike this loop trail either direction, but I prefer CCW which is how this description is written.

At its east junction with the Rocky Mountain Greenway, prepare for a refreshing descent to the creek and the Lindsay Ranch. Check out the barn and water up for a grind back up onto the mesa between the Ranch and the NREL National Wind Technology Center. There are nice views of the gigantic turbines, Eldorado Mountain, and the Continental Divide and the Indian Peaks beyond. Continue on the doubletrack as it winds south and then climbs back up the main road. To return to your starting point, make a left and work back to the east junction with the Lindsay Ranch Loop.
