    I found the last bit of fall colors! Conifer still has some incredible color for early October, plus it’s only about 45 minutes from Denver & has some beautiful trails with lots of shade.

    Eagle’s View Trail is about 4 miles round trip, but does have a decent amount of elevation gain if you want to make it to the top for the view. But Reynolds Park has a ton of options to make your hike shorter and a little easier.

    We accidentally missed the first turn off onto Raven’s Roost which is one of the options to take you to Eagle’s View Trail but it ended up being a good thing because Oxen Draw Trail offered a less steep option to the top!

    We had the trail almost completely to ourselves on a weekday, which was a really beautiful treat. At the top of Eagle’s View Trail you emerge from the trees for a gorgeous view then a pretty easy walk around the top.

    We went back down Raven’s Roost and were really glad we took Oxen Draw, not only was it even more beautiful, but man was Raven’s Roost steep! I totally talk a tumble on the gravel (don’t worry, it happens a lot – I’m very clumsy!)
