Description

Depending on where your desk is... run up Boulder Creek (West) until you get to Eben G Fine park. Find the end of Arapahoe Street and the trail starts in a dirt road (a shared driveway) for 100 yards until the proper trail starts. Don't stop until you hit the lookout - which can be a good challenge! There are a few great options to continue on up Flag or loop back through Chautauqua park (depends on your lunch break). Cheers and enjoy.

Easily accessible from home. Steep climb but short, will be great for a quick but challenging run.
