“A forest trail that heads through/around several boggy areas in the St. Vrain river drainage
— John Scalese
River/Creek · Wildlife
Mostly great footing with a few areas where runners will want to pay attention to their foot placement.
This shorter, gently rolling trail connects the South Sourdough (#835)
and the parking area at Brainard lake to the South Saint Vrain Trail (#909)
. Due to the beautiful old-growth pine forests, trail users will be heavily shaded throughout, and will get a sense of peaceful isolation. The lush area is quite enjoyable, especially in a state typically characterized by dry weather vegetation.
Flora & Fauna
Deep pine forest, dominated by lodgepole pine.
