East Trailhead: Turn west on Buffalo Park Road from County Highway 73, just south of downtown Evergreen, and travel approximately one mile. You can also reach this trailhead by foot or bike from the Dedissee Trail, originating at the Evergreen Lakehouse. West Trailhead: This larger lot is a 1/2 mile west of the east trailhead.
Climbing the rock formations is my favorite part of this trail.
Heavy traffic with the mts bikers, groups of people and other hikers leading to a lot of noise. Not a place if you are looking for a peaceful hike on the weekends. Getting their early doesn't help. Trail itself is nice. Trying again on a weekday.
Beautiful park! A lot of trails with a great variety.
Lots of great rock scrambling for kids. We actually didn't cover much of the trail. The boys gravitated straight to the first rock outcropping a short hike from the parking lot and spent an hour + just exploring among the rocks. Warning: some of the rocks are pretty tall for young kids.
This trail is my go to for a quick run/hike without the traffic (I take 285). Family friendly area as well if you are looking to bring children.
