Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Created in 1992, Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge (RMANWR) is a serene wildlife oasis near a bustling urban area. Over the years, the mile-wide buffer around the former chemical weapons plant provided a refuge for prairie animals and birds as the Denver metro area expanded.

White-tailed and mule deer, eagles, prairie dogs, hawks, waterfowl, burrowing owls, and more thrive here, so close to millions of people. Enjoy watching wildlife on your hike through shortgrass prairie, woodlands, and wetlands rich in farming and military history."
