Red Rock Picnic Area to Rainbow Lakes Trail
The Sourdough Trail, though popular, has much less traffic than trails in and around Brainard Lake. You won’t get quite the stunning views of the Indian Peaks but you get beautiful views of the foothills, plains, and even snow-capped peaks in the distance. As you can see from the altitude information (gained and lost) on the map, both trail segments roller coaster, but the trail segment from Brainard to the south is more level overall, until you near Rainbow Lakes where the trail descends significantly.
