Great trail system not much water there is a ditch that has water in it in the spring. rocky in spots some climbs not much Doudy Draw Trail (1.7 mile + 0.5 mile to intersection with Community Ditch Trail) meanders southward along the draw to the junction with the Spring Brook Loop Trail. Spring Brook Loop heads west from Doudy Draw toward the Eldorado Mountain Habitat Conservation Area (HCA). The Goshawk Ridge Trail travels through the HCA; an off-trail permit is required for off-trail travel in the HCA. After the Spring Brook Loop junction, Doudy Draw crosses the creek and heads east up the slope to the Flatirons Vista Trails. Here you will find open stands of ponderosa pine on a savannah ecosystem. Flatirons Vista North or South will lead to the Flatirons Vista Trailhead on Highway 93. Community Ditch Trail (1.7 mile west of Hwy 93 and 1.9 mile east of Hwy 93) heads along the community ditch from the Doudy Draw Trail approximately 0.2 miles south of the picnic area. This trail can be taken to the Marshall Mesa Trailhead or to trails leading to Greenbelt Plateau Trailhead, both east of Highway 93.

Great for a trail run or mountain bike. Love the rolling hills and views of the Flatirons. For a hike, it's nice and easy and a good choice if you have flat landers in town.

Too many bikes. Hikers yield to them. Sometimes no indication they were coming from behind until right on my butt.
