Somewhat paved doubletrack heading straight up to multiple trail intersections.

Runner Notes

There's a pit toilet at the intersection with Mesa Trail.

Description

From the northeastern corner of Chatauqua Park, this doubletrack/somewhat paved road heads directly south, almost straight up the contours. Once you've passed the final house on your left, the trail bends to the right and the grade steepens. Eventually, you'll reach an intersection with Mesa Trail, where there is a single pit toilet.

After the toilet, Bluebell Road winds back on itself, making a lollipop loop. This loop connects to the Flatirons Loop trail, Bluebell-Baird Trail, and Bluebell Spur Trail. At the top of the lollipop, the Bluebell Shelter provides shade and protection from the elements. Built in 1923, this structure has been preserved and upgraded over the years and can be rented for events.

Though the views are stunning, this is one of the LEAST aesthetic trails in Chautauqua.
