West side: Close up views of beautiful red rock formations. Check out the Morrison Slide trail for some top side views all the way south along the hog back.

East side: Dakota Ridge gets your heart thumping as you climb from the parking lot - then views of Green Mountain to the east and Red Rocks to the west.

Nice trail to get some exercise. Good views of the city and Red Rocks. Wide open trail most of the way, with lots of traffic around but everyone is super friendly and considerate.
