This is a trailhead to trailhead out and back run (ride, hike, trot, whatever) at Hidden Mesa Open Space. It's 6.66 miles with a healthy burst of elevation to climb back up the mesa. Short section of paved pathway (Cherry Creek Trail) to traverse near the Franktown-side trailhead. Given the mileage and how that burst of elevation feels on the return, I refer to it as Devil's Traverse (but apparently alltrails isn't on board with that...)
