Davidson Mesa Open Space Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This great hike is within the city limits of Louisville. It offers great views to the Flatirons, the Indian Peaks, and Longs Peak to the north. Bring the dog; there is an enclosed dog run where your pooch can play.
The trail becomes rocky the higher you climb, with great views back to Boulder and the east. After a mile and 900 feet of elevation gain, the trail reaches a ridge and skirts through a beautiful forest of ponderosa pine and Douglas fir. Make a
small drop to a stream on the left and an old road on the right. This lovely, small, open meadow has beautiful, large ferns and alpine flowers blooming along the trail in the summer months."
