Maverick and Sawmill Trails
The high plains wash out before the ridgetops of the Front Range like an ocean of green and brown. No doubt it was from vantage points as broad and far-seeing as those along the Maverick Trail that Ute and Arapaho Indians surveyed the awesome prairie for the dark stain of buffalo. And no doubt the homesteaders that settled these high-country meadows also marveled at the vast scope of the grasslands. Likewise, the eyes of the modern hiker will be drawn eastward to marvel at the beauty of the high plains, glistening with its patchwork overlay of the handiwork of humankind. The scope and variation of the wildlands within this park, which host more than 18 miles of trail, demand exploration. This trail loop has a frontier feel, beginning and ending near the old ranch that was part of Paul R. White’s homestead.
