“A fun trail to let your dog off the leash with many water crossings to romp through.”— Deborah Gulley
After reaching the 3-mile point, the trail becomes a little more rolling, with some dips down and short steep climbs back up. You'll eventually top out around 6,850 feet of elevation before beginning the gradual descent through wide open grassy fields.
Around the 5-mile mark, you'll find more water crossings as you follow the creek back through the burned out forest to complete the loop section of the trail. You'll complete the loop around mile 6, where you'll begin a gradual descent back to the trailhead.
