3 Bar Trail, Eagle’s Nest Open Space Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"“Big sky country” is a phrase associated with Montana, but it applies just as well to Eagle’s Nest Open Space in northern Colorado. Hike through this expansive grassland with majestic vistas that change with every step and include distant mountains, mesas, rock outcroppings, and, yes, lots of sky.
Eagle’s Nest Open Space is named after Eagle’s Nest Rock, which—you guessed it—gets its name from the golden eagle nests that have reportedly called the rock home since time out of mind. You can almost count on observing raptors any day here, including red- tailed hawks, prairie falcons, and golden eagles. Before heading out for a hike, check the park’s website, Facebook page, or Twitter account for any wildlife closures or closures due to especially muddy trails."
