“This is a wide, flat, dirt-and-gravel path circumnavigating the prairie at the Two Ponds National Wildlife Refuge.”— Jen Paulus
While on trail, listen to the sounds of many varieties of bird, watch falcons surveying the area for prey, and count the number of rabbits hopping across the trail. Use this time as a quiet respite to reflect and enjoy. To top it all off, pleasant views of the foothills and Front Range can be seen at various points along the loop.
A sign with a map and information is located at the entrance on W 77th Ave, near Kipling St.
