A child’s walk among tundra’s treasures followed by a downhill hike through a wind-sculpted forest is what makes this combination of trails a delight. The trail flanks the new Dos Chappell Nature Center, perhaps the highest and best of its kind. It is named for the founder of Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado. The trail begins just off the highway adjacent to the trail sign. The field of rocks here is called a fell field, where in early summer hikers are likely to find alpine forget-me-nots, a mat of tiny sky-blue flowers with yellow centers. To demonstrate why flowers in this area are short, have the kids feel and compare the power of wind when standing tall and when crouched low, like the flowers. Please stay on the trail; plants may grow less than a quarter inch during the brief season.
