“An unexciting out-and-back dirt road; adds a few miles if you're already out at Rabbit Mountain.”— Kristen Arendt
After that, you'll be rewarded with a nice cruiser downhill, but don't get too comfortable. You'll reach a gate which marks the turnaround point. Beyond this gate is private property so if you choose to run this far, your only option is to turn around and head back up the hill the way you came. There are some Initial views west of Mount Meeker and Long's Peak and views north of Berthoud and into Larimer County that make this trail more pleasant.
A great variety of plants with the highlights being prickly poppies, locoweed, asters, larkspur, coral bells, and sage. Some ponderosa pine and juniper up on the hillside.
