The Brother and Sisters Loop-Alderfer/Three Sisters Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Climb up to and around the signature rock outcroppings that anchor this wonderful mountain park. The views from the summit of the Brother are breathtaking.

Alderfer/Three Sisters Park has long been a personal favorite. It’s the epitome of a mountain park, a perfect amalgamation of woodland, meadow, rock outcrops, foothills history, and superlative views. This loop encompasses all that, and though it’s a challenging hike, it’s also a real gem."

Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"Alderfer Three Sisters Open Space Park boasts 770 acres of open land. Ever since Evergreen was settled, the four rock formations called Three Sisters and Brother have been landmarks, providing views of the Bear Creek Basin and Mount Evans. More than 10 miles of trail lead hikers around the Three Sisters and up to Brother. Ponderosa Sisters Loop is a great way to take a cursory look at this mountain park."

This is a good trail if you're living in the Denver area and want a trail that's not too far away. It's a good trail, but you'll have to listen to cars driving by in the background.

Beautiful trail. The walks along the river are amazing and the stair case up or down is incredible. For an out of shape guy like me it was probably 2 miles too long and there is quite a bit of up and down but like I said I'm out of shape. Hikers will have to contend with bikers but there was never a problem. How bikers do this trail I will never understand. There are some exposed areas so try to avoid mid day (in the summer) unless you just like the smell of burning skin.
