Description

3.52 miles of moderate trail with moderate elevation gain. A park staff favorite because of great pines and rock features along the way. Along this trail, visitors can even view a stunning pine growing out from a boulder.

The trail links to Zook Loop, Medicine Wheel, and Cougar's Shadow.

Easy-moderate difficulty hike through semi wooded area with really pretty scenery. Great for a quick half day get away. 8$ parking or CO state pass.
