Started at Pine Valley Ranch Park took Buck Gulch out to connect to The Skipper, then connected to the Homestead Trail/Charles Cutoff loop, and made my way back via Strawberry Jack Trail and Park View Trail. Gorgeous views! Quite a bit of the hike is through the burn area from the Buffalo Creek Fire of 1996, so very warm-lots of sun exposure due to minimal tree cover. Bring more water than you normally do if you do the full 2 loops. Also, if you have a pup, bring double water for them as there is only 1 small stream. Did find a random water tank on the Strawberry Trail that was there courtesy ‘neighborly equestrians’. Very thankful as I could scoop water to cool off my dog! Also found huge bunches of raspberry bushes after turning onto The Skipper Trail. Lastly, I don’t think the ‘Getting There’ directions quite match the GPS coordinates and the map of the trail route on the app? I followed the GPS and that led me to Pine Valley Ranch Park which is a nice JCOS Park.
