Rawhide / Wrangler
When warm days mark the beginning of summer at White Ranch Open Space Park, great patches of rosy-purple beebalm accent the 2.3-mile Rawhide/ Wrangler Loop. Diverse habitats here, from ponderosa park lands to wet, riparian meadows, were once the property of the ranching White family. Ranches like this one kept the land in one piece; the 3,000-acre historic White Ranch, maintained by Jefferson County, even has pack-in backcountry campsites. Rawhide Trail drops steeply before meeting level Wrangler Trail. Then it resumes the name Rawhide as it climbs gently back to the parking area. Along the way, hikers are treated to a variety of wildflowers in different stages of bloom from late May until August. Wildflower alert: Purple beebalm dominates the midsummer scenery.
