Evergreen Mtn Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Here is a short and scenic loop in Alderfer/Three Sisters Park. Located in Jefferson County Open Space near the scenic town of Evergreen, and easily accessible from Denver, too, this hike provides a nice getaway from the busy city.

This 770-acre park is an ideal destination for a quick hike, with broad vistas of rolling, forested foothills, secluded trails, and glimpses out to the high reaches of the Continental Divide. Alderfer is home to the unmistakable rock formations dubbed “The Three Sisters” and “The Brother,” situated in the north side of the park. Today’s trail wanders through the southern section up to Evergreen Mountain."

"Compared with Mount Evans, which rises majestically to the west, Evergreen Mountain is but a well-treed nubbin of a foothill-a nubbin well-worth exploring. A wide, well-maintained trail wanders along the mountain's north face, through a thick lodgepole forest that resounds with silence."

Started at 1pm done by just before 3pm. The guide was easy to follow and acurate. It starts you off on the West side of the trail, through a thinned pine forest, with no views. The East side is by far the prettier side of the hike with rocky ledges overlooking Evergreen, clumps of aspen, interesting rock formations, and plenty of small wildlife.

This was a good, not too difficult hike, make sure that you take the time to do the summit trail. Need to watch out for a lot of mountain bikers.
