Lovely little trail.

Maybe my favorite Boulder County open space. There are a lot of places where it feels more like plateau country than Front Range. Bike traffic is a big detractor for hikers on the Bitterbrush but it's often worth it due to the awesomeness. Especially love the rock garden area and it's fun to watch the more skilled bikers who can really ride it. A lot of the summer, this trail is a bit too hot. The mule deer here are not particularly afraid of people and especially when they have fawns and will often stand their ground when you meet them on the trail.

Great hike today, it was my first time hiking Lower Dadd. The entire trail was covered in snow, it was only a few inches deep though, and icy spots near the stream crossings. Nothing a good pair of hiking shoes can’t handle. I didn’t see anyone else on the trail the entire day, it was incredibly peaceful.

Did this in 9/2016. 3rd ever hike and it was brutal above tree line. Little bit of snow, sleet and rain....and lots of wind. Last 3/4 mile up visibility was terrible. Fellow hiker caught up to me and we booked it to the top. No views whatsoever! Would've turned around if I continued by myself as the weather was getting rough. Started this hike at 7:30 AM. Wear light but very warm and wind resistant clothing if doing this late Sept! Stayed in the small town of Nederland after, awesome place!

Easy rehab hike. Haven’t checked this trail out til today. It was closed during the calving season and so I did Mud Lake.
No snow/mud. One short icy section.

Super late fall hike. In the 50s and was pleased to find that the majority of the hike was protected from the wind which was heard gusting in the vales.

Only had one glimpse of the Back Range and that was of Old Baldy. Better views on the Mud Lake hike.

The ruins of the Bluebird Mine and the DeLonde Homestead were quite interesting.

Managed to stretch it to 5.8mi.

Did this one first time at night NO off road lights. stock yj. found lots of snow.

Beautiful views with snow packed roads. 2003 Wrangler Sahara 31 inch tires no lift.

Snow ice the whole way. Be sure to have micro spikes. Ran out of time and had to turn back prior to the lake. No wild life but lots of tracks.

Beautiful hike, some washed away areas near end and the connector and bridge at 2.4 miles are gone...

Go up here all the time. Lots of water crossings for the dog, the loop makes its way through the burned area, presenting some obstacles, otherwise, very serene and one of my favourites!
