“Come to Caribou Ranch to experience beautiful wildflower meadows, the DeLonde Homestead, and the famous Blue Bird Mine.”— John Scalese
After returning to the Blue Bird Loop and reaching the junction with the DeLonde Trail, simply follow it back the way you came to the parking area.
This system can easily be connected with several more miles of trails at the Mud Lake Open Space by using the Caribou Ranch Link.
The meadows are surrounded with aspen that allow for great fall color.
