Bowman’s Shortcut Trail is often gentle interspersed with a few steep stretches. The trail winds through lodgepole and spruce-fir forest then crosses several open meadows on a gentle ridge with great views of Mount of the Holy Cross and the Sawatch Range to the southwest the Gore Range to the east and the Tenmile Range to the south. The meadows are filled with colorful wildflowers in July. In winter this trail is part of the Commando Run of the U. S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division fame. The best part of Bowman’s Shortcut Trail comes along the high gentle ridge —the great views cover a large section of the central mountains. You can see at least three 14 000-foot peaks: Mount Elbert and Mount Massive near Leadville and Mount of the Holy Cross. What appears to be a high meadow above a headwall is really Homestake Reservoir. To the east the craggy peaks of the Gore Range treat the eye.
