Once the site of extensive coal mining activity, Marshall Mesa now harbors prairie grasses (and prairie dog colonies), wildflowers, a nice loop hike, and great Flatiron views.

Pros: Nice family hike - my wife and I had 3 kids (ages 8, 6, 3) and our dog along with us. This is one we'll be doing again. Cons: a lot of bikes that we had to watch out for.
