Starting at an old homestead, this trail takes you over Cherry Creek and then through a great example of shortgrass prairie before heading up the mesa. You wander through a juniper ecosystem with some ponderosa pine and prickly pear cactus on this mesa rimmed by Castle Rock Conglomerate, with its cemented cobbles. Views from the top start at Pikes Peak to the south and follow the Front Range to Longs Peak in the north. The Black Forest around Franktown pleases the eye to the east. This 1,224-acre open space buffer between Castle Rock and Franktown protects prairie dogs, pronghorns, mule deer, elk, and many raptors.
