Tried to do this hike today.... walking down the trail for five minutes...... Someone hit me with their bike and knocked me off of the trail and over the side... glad that tree was there to stop us from rolling down any further :(

The town of Buena Vista is so sweet and welcoming. You can walk by the Arkansas River and make your way up to the high point of Midland Hill while viewing the majestic Collegiate Peaks. This was moderately strenuous but definitely doable for an energized morning jaunt.

Dramatic views from the peak of Midland Hill. Watch out for bikes on the lower portion.

It's a beautiful trail although kind of short. If your looking for something close to the river and secluded, then this is the place!
