“A great hilly, juniper-filled hike just outside of Olathe, CO.”— Michele Hart
Very soon after you begin, you'll come to a fork in the road, if you veer left you'll head down to a cool cave, just off the trail. It is worth the pitstop. Then you head back to fork and carry on your way.
This trail is not used very often so letting your dog off leash should be pretty easy to do. You may encounter bikers so be mindful of that.
Lastly, this trail will get wicked hot in the summer so be prepared. However, this same climate that bakes it in the summer turns it into a great shoulder season hike!
