D.R. Trail to Mahoney Park Professional Review and Guide
"Bobcat Ridge Natural Area opened to the public in 2006, with new trails added in 2007. Starting in prairie between a hogback and Green Ridge (the beginning of the foothills), the hike follows the Valley Loop Trail to a spur trail leading to an old cabin built in the early 1900s. Then it follows the D. R. Trail, which climbs through a ponderosa pine forest to Mahoney Park, a beautiful meadow ringed with hills and granitic rock formations. You’ll hike through the scars of the 2000 Bobcat Gulch Fire, an area that is recovering with new trees and colorful wild?owers."
