"The loop trail in Dawson Butte Ranch Open Space winds gently through ponderosa pine and Gambel oak (oakbrush) forest and across several meadows on the south side of Dawson Butte. Occasionally you get glimpses of the tops of Pikes Peak and Devils Head, along with the ridge of the Rampart Range to the west. This open space features separate bridle trails complete with over sixty horse jumps. The area is excellent wildlife habitat with a good diversity of birds. With a picnic table almost halfway around the loop, this trail provides for a leisurely hike." Read more
