A fun, short loop with some challenging obstacles close to Denver.

Description

This is a short trail in the Hidden Mesa Open Space. It can be accessed directly by car by taking Parker Road and turning west on Castle Oaks Drive. From Castle Oak Drive, turn left on Pleasant View Drive. After about 3 miles, there will be a small parking lot on your left. Alternatively, and probably more fun, you can access this trail from the Hidden Mesa Trail.

The trail is a short, fun loop on top of the Mesa. Run either direction. The top of the mesa is a fun rocky trail with quasi slickrock sections. Most of it is fairly easy, but there is one section with several rock ledges that will test your foot placement. The largest of the ledges are around a foot high.
