Directions: From US 36 head toward Boulder (west from Denver). Take the Baseline Exit and turn L on Baseline. Follow up hill and take a L into Chautaqua Park, just past 9th street. Park in the parking lot on the Right, by the ranger cottage.
Trail Information: 7 mile one way (makes a nice out and back). Long medium steep climb at the beginning then mostly long rolling hills. Run to the south trail head near Eldorado Springs.
Miscellaneous Information: Great views, but keep a watch during bear and mountain lion season. Generally a very safe trail, and it gets a lot of usage. In the summer you can stop off at the Eldorado Pool for a refreshing swim (chilly but nice). Be sure to take water
