Beautiful views from the top of Dakota Ridge on both sides of the Ridge. The trail is very busy with hikers, runners, and mountain bikers. Only downfall is the highway very close to the trail.

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!
