Went out for an early morning hike with hopes to avoid the triple digit temps forecast for today. Nice trail and if you want it mostly to yourself, go early in the morning. Would recommend for children 7 and older as there is some somewhat steep rocky terrain for toddler aged children in my opinion.
Parked at Hidden Mesa Open Area Parking lot off of Parker Road just north of Franktown. Easy climb to base of Mesa where you run into a short but more technical steep and loose rocky section prior to reaching the top. Nice 1.9 mile loop at top with great views. Rode loop twice around before fast down hill ride back. Nice mountain bike trail close to town
