The Colorado Trail: North Cottonwood Creek to Chalk Creek Trailhead is a 3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Buena Vista, Colorado and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from June until November.
I hiked a portion of this trail in early October. It's a great trail to enjoy the fall foliage. Near the beginning of the trail I saw a small body of water with what appeared to be a beaver dam in the center. Then I saw two moose emerge and drink from the water! I thoroughly enjoyed this hike although I wasn't able to complete it due to time constraints.
