Relatively flat singletrack gravel trail along Platte River with gorgeous views of the river. Great for families!

Family Friendly Relatively flat, no major drop offs.

Description

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.
