Soapstone Prairie = FUN
Dusty and I headed up to check out the new Soapstone Prairie Natural Area the other day. It’s about 20 miles north of town and has around 50 miles of trails for hiking and riding bikes. We were impressed with the quality of new trails which were a nice mix of singletrack and double track over gently rolling terrain. The views were pretty amazing, and we saw lots of pronghorn antelope, birds and wildflowers. The landscape and riding is pretty unique- it’s different than anything I’ve ridden on the front range. Those trails aren’t going to ride themselves…
Be sure to bring plenty of water, as I didn’t see any at the trailhead and you are WAY out there.
