Overview

A shorter lollipop loop at Matthews Winters Park with some fun ups and downs and some nice views at the top.

Runner Notes

It is a steady climb from the parking lot to the top of Morrison Slide Trail at the two mile mark with no tree cover.

Description

Start at the bridge just below the parking lot. Take the Village Walk Trail west for .5 miles before turning south on the the Red Rocks Trail. After .5 miles turn west onto Cherry Gulch Trail then turn south onto Morrison Slide Trail for 1.5 miles before turning east back onto the Red Rocks Trail. After .7 miles turn east to continue on the Red Rocks Trail. Kick it into high gear and cruise back the way you came via the Red Rocks Trail and Village Walk Trail back to the bridge.

Flora & Fauna

Keep an eye out for rattlesnakes, coyotes, deer and mountain lions (near dawn/dusk)
