Big Bluestem West Professional Review and Guide

"Wander through tallgrass and mixed-grass prairie where cattle still graze, then hike up into the foothills thick with vegetation, in view of spectacular rock formations. In spring, the wild?owers and ?owering bushes send sweet-scented fragrances wafting across the air. Fall brings colorful leaves and berries, which bears eagerly eat to fatten up before winter arrives.

Devil’s Thumb and The Maiden rock formations poke their heads into the sky as the land rises abruptly from the Mesa Trail. Sample the various ecosystems of Boulder’s Open Space & Mountain Parks while hiking this scenic, moderate loop."
