Description

The Bluestem Trail is a short trail along the Colorado River. It starts and ends on the Riverside Trail, and bisects the Bluff Trail Loop, making for a nice alternate for runners either looking to make a loop with the Riverside Trail or wanting to stay more on the ridgeline for their run.
