This trail has a nice meadow at the top of a steep hike. Its nice to bike up to the trailhead from carbondale.

Steep! It's actually 4.2 miles to the end but the meadow is the best part (about 3 miles in). Pack lots of water and a lunch to enjoy in the meadow. Love the unique view of Mt. Sopris and the aspen groves.

This is a steep trail for most of the hike up. There is a small creek that you cross over and can get water for your dogs, but otherwise, if its a hot sunny day, I recommend bringing LOTS of water. You are exposed to the sun most of the hike. The view of Sopris at the top of the meadow is amazing!

Steep, dusty and rocky for most of the trail. You can hear but not often see Perham Creek running in the canyon along the trail. The sound alone is peaceful though. The hike up is worthwhile once you reach the top, where it opens up into a large meadow and you get a great view of Mt. Sopris.
