This was a really fun and challenging trail! The trail was challenging only because it is a gradual (steep in a few short bursts) climb for about 2 miles. Amazing western views once you get over the ridge. Took me about 4.5-5 hours to complete. I took the Homestead trail to Shadow Canyon then took Shadow Canyon to the Towhee trail back. Would recommend doing the opposite. I would take the Towhee trail out because it offers fantastic views of the Flatirons and such!
