The North Sourdough follows natural contours as it twists through old-growth forests and across gurgling creeks, providing an alternative to the crowded trails in the Indian Peaks Wilderness and Rocky Mountain National Park.Many Front Range residents take this magnificent swath of national forest for granted and assume, incorrectly, that it is protected as part of the Indian Peaks Wilderness. A few open spots expose the North Sourdough to wind. It has only a few glimpses of the high peaks so is best for folks who like just rambling through the woods. The descent from Brainard Road to Beaver Reservoir and Peaceful Valley is a moderate hike but a steep cross-country ski.Watch out for mountain bikes in summer.
