Kim Conner

Need to Know

When you get to the top, you're in the midst of the Three Sisters landmark.

Runner Notes

Lots of families use this park so be cautious of them on the front side trails. The backside tends to be pretty empty though, enjoy the solitude.

Description

I left from the parking lot at the barn parking lot at coordinates 39.622772, -105.360191 (the address on the park website will not take you here). I took Bluebird Meadow trail, which is a raised meadow trail, nice and smooth, and turned left onto HomesteadTrail / Bearberry Trail. I stayed right onto Bearberry Trail up into the woods. I continued to head uphill and past where Mountain Muhly Trail intersects back with Bearberry Trail. I turned left onto Sister's Trail , which is a technical switchback leading up inbetween the three sisters themselves! Watch your footing and pause to look up at the sisters. When you reach the top, you're right inbetween the Middle Sister to the right and the North Sister to the left. When I reached the bottom of the switchbacks, I headed left onto Hidden Fawn Trail , where it became nice and easy again. There's some really nice outcroppings and boulders in this area, very picturesque and some available climbing. Stay straight onto Ponderosa Trail as you pass the main parking lot on the left. Head west, this trail stays near the road and is a little harder than some of the previous areas, watch your footing. Stay left onto the Silver Fox Trail and head left back to the barn when you can see it and there's a trail headed back that way. 3.8 miles complete.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of pine and aspen.

History & Background

Three Sisters, three large rocks that from a distance look like three sisters standing together.
