The foothills west of Denver, and the high peaks beyond, would be far less enchanting if the high plains didn't stretch away in a thousand miles of flatness to the Mississippi River. The juxtaposition of these wildly different environments is special and rare. This trail wanders through the prairie and riparian ecosystems near Bear Creek Reservoir, never entering the mountains but always in their shadow.
