  • This is one of my favorite local hikes! It has various access points that make the hike either really long to perfect in length to what feels like straight up and short. You can make it a loop or go there and back again. Various options with how long you hike as well. The best is the vantage point it takes you up to! There is an amazing view of the town and of the reservoir both. Yes you can have the best of both worlds! The trail is varied from packed dirt single track to rocky pay attention where you step track. One thing is consistent though, there's not much shade so go in the morning or bring shade layers and enough water. The terrain is beautiful with fields home to wildflowers, sage and every now and again a cactus. Stop every now and again and just take it in. We are so lucky to be able to be in such a beautiful place!
  • Visiting for the day. Was the prettiest thing I have seen. If I lived out here in Colorado I would visit every weekend. Its peaceful and perfect for family outings.
