D.R. Trail to Mahoney Park
Bobcat Ridge Natural Area opened to the public in 2006, with new trails added in 2007. Starting in prairie between a hogback and Green Ridge (the beginning of the foothills), the hike follows Valley Loop Trail to a spur trail to an old cabin built in the early 1900s and then to the D. R. Trail, which climbs through a ponderosa pine forest to Mahoney Park, a beautiful meadow ringed with hills and granitic rock formations. You’ll hike through the scars of the 2000 Bobcat Gulch fire, an area that is recovering with little trees and colorful flowers.
