Need to Know
This trail has a lot of fisherman trails, social trails and animal trails and at about 2.64 miles; stay low near the river or you'll find yourself scrambling on these social/animal trails and the terrain can be a bit technical and advanced; however great views!
Trail starts at trailhead with 4-5 parking spots along County Road 112. The trail is relatively well shaded with evergreens and provides good views of the Platte River. It is great for families, our 5, 3, and 1 year old kids were able to handle it. There were numerous wildflowers and birds, and we were able to see one deer while hiking. The trail does not perfectly correlate to the map on the hiking project app, but it is well marked with blue diamonds on trees, and the singletrack is easy to follow.
