Description

From Old Fall River Rd., ascend briefly to a ridge and then begin the descent along Chapin Creek. This trail leads through marshy wetlands and is a hotbed for springtime wildflowers. After descending for about a mile, the grade will lessen dramatically. At the northern terminus, Chapin Creek Trail will intersect the Poudre River Trail.
