Amazing view from the ridge, you feel on top of the world!

One of my favorite hikes near town. Dakota Ridge trail is rocky and up and down in elevation (and I've learned to wear boots or I come home with a few purple toes!) The red rocks trail is fairly easy-great spot at top to sit a enjoy views-busy trail head with bikes, dogs, runners and I've seen a few rattle snacks on this trail so be safe!

Tough at some points -- had to walk even though I was trying to run the trail. Great workout though and awesome views!

Very nice hike with great views!

Fun little hike with some cool dinosaur history. Pretty easy so it'd be great for kids too. Just don't go when it rains since some of the rocks can get loose.

Lots of loose rock on this trail. We did not finish due to rain storms coming in but the view before the half way point was still amazing!
