Details



Description: Try this 2.70 mile, out and back trail near Nederland, Colorado. Generally considered an easy route with other hiking trails nearby. This trail is great for hiking, and it's unlikely you'll encounter many other people while exploring. You'll need to leave pups at home — dogs aren't allowed on this trail. It is a great early season hike/backpack/gear check. To the north, there are views of Longs Peak/Mt. Meeker. 



Itinerary: 

Day #1. After driving to the trail head, the group will hike to a campsite at about 1.5 miles in.  Here the group will camp for one night. (1.5 miles/+400')

Day #2. The group can hike around the area on other trails that intersect with this loop, come back to camp and pack out for the evening. (1.5 miles/-400’)



General Requirements: There are no facilities at the trailhead. Multiple options for exploration.
