Trail shared by Tyler Richter

A five mile loop with gentle grades in the shadow of Dakota, Lyons, and Niobrara hogbacks.

Description

Head south a short distance out of the parking area to find the signed route where the loop begins. The loop includes a wide-open experience on the edge of the hogback overlooking a valley with views of the Chatfield Reservoir. A 1.1-mile, hard-surface connector through a residential area completes the circle.

Mileage include connector trail through Trailmark neighborhood. Muddy today. The fog was lovely though. Very grassland, don't recommend when snakes… 5.1mi
