About one mile south from the trailhead there is a fork creating a loop. If you turn left you will climb up a bit while the path to the right is mainly flat passing by a small pond. If you continue riding south the trail connects to the New Santa Fe trail in Palmer Lake. Take a stop at a picnic table along the way to enjoy the views of mesas and buttes in the surrounding Douglas County.

Difficulty: Easy to medium. Wide, smooth surface with just few climbs.
Directions: Take I-25 north. After you pass Monument Hill take exit 167. Turn left and drive under the interstate for 1/4 of a mile. Then turn left again on Noe road and drive south for 1/2 a mile to the well marked trail head.
