Alderfer/Three Sisters Park


Image


Park Map file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/parks-and-trails-park-map-alderfer-three-sisters%20(1).pdf
Trail Profiles

The dominant features of this Open Space park are the rock outcroppings known as "The Three Sisters" and "The Brother". The outcrops are metamorphic rock of the Precambrian Era which consist largely of silver plume quartz. A trail leads to the top of "The Brother" where a commanding view of Evergreen and the surrounding valleys reward the hiker.

Near the heart of Evergreen, Alderfer/Three Sisters Park abounds with stunning vistas, landmark rock formations, beautiful old stands of ponderosa pine and the most trails per acre of any foothills park—nearly 15 miles on 770 acres.

Once a working ranch for cattle, horses and foxes, Alderfer/Three Sisters is now a park that offers a variety of experiences, from hikes across rolling terrain to challenging rides to the top of Evergreen Mountain. Climbers enjoy bouldering on rock formations near the south trailhead. Pads are encouraged. Fixed protection is not permitted.

“The Three Sisters” and “The Brother” are the landmarks of the terrain. Meadows burst with wildflowers in late spring and early summer. Birdlife includes turkey vultures, Cooper's hawks, red-shafted flickers, Stellar's jays, ravens and mountain bluebirds.

Image


East Trailhead:
30299 Buffalo Park Rd., Turn west on Buffalo Park Road from County Highway 73, just south of downtown Evergreen, and travel approximately one mile. You can also reach this trailhead by foot or bike from the Dedissee Trail, originating at the Evergreen Lakehouse.

West Trailhead:
31677 Buffalo Park Rd., This larger lot is a 1/2 mile west of the east trailhead.

The west section of the Wild Iris Loop is closed from Buffalo Creek Road to its juncture with Evergreen Mountain West due to flood damage.

Apex Park provides a popular, accessible foothills experience minutes from downtown Golden.


Hikers and trail runners exert themselves along exposed steep grades or find cool respite on shaded trails. Birders follow the intermittent stream graced with cottonwoods into the Enchanted Forest. Mountain bikers can test their mettle and technique as they grind their way to the top of Lookout Mountain and descend.

A grant from Great Outdoors Colorado will help Jefferson County and the Downtown Evergreen Economic District draw up a master plan for trail connectivity in and around downtown Evergreen.

The plan will outline how to connect Wilmont Elementary and Evergreen Public Library to each other and to downtown Evergreen with pedestrain and bike trails.

"It's been a longstanding issue that needs to be done, but it's not going to be done by the county alone," Kevin French, Jeffco director of transportation and engineering, said.

Evergreen Park and Recreation District and the Evergreen architectural firm EVstudio contributed $10,800 to the project, and DEED put up the $10,000 in matching funds needed to qualify for the $49,000 GOCO grant, totaling $69,800 to fund the plan.

Dedisse Park


Image

North of Upper Bear Creek Road is a quieter, more typical mountain park with a stone picnic shelter, available by reservation, and forested hillsides with picnic spots for visitors. West of the golf course, the Park connects southward to Alderfer-3 Sisters Park via the Dedisse Trail across a second forested slope.

Elk Meadow


Image
Elk Meadow Park contains a rich history and stories of the past. )Photo credit Jeffco Open Space)

Elk Meadow's trail system allows visitors to enjoy a haven of natural beauty and versatility and connects to Denver Mountain Parks and Division of Wildlife property.


Trail Miles: 13.1
Acres: 1,657

True to its name, Elk Meadow Park is the most likely place in the Open Space system to view herds of elk. The meadow is prime grazing ground for the largest of Colorado’s native deer, as well as where mountain bluebirds flit and red-tailed hawks circle the sky hunting for rodents and other prey.

Trail experiences are diverse—short jaunts on flat terrain, a rolling trek on Meadow View Trail, the 4.7-mile haul with a 2,100-foot elevation gain from the Stagecoach Boulevard trailhead to 9,708-foot Bergen Peak. This Denver Mountain Parks landmark affords sweeping views of the Continental Divide. The number of switchbacks on this steep, rocky path demand sharing the trail, as always, along with being prepared for wildlife encounters.

Image


Lewis Ridge Trailhead: From I-70, exit onto Highway 74 (Exit 252), drive south 2.25 miles to Lewis Ridge Road, turning right into the parking lot.

Stagecoach Trailhead: From Highway 74, turn west on Stagecoach Boulevard and proceed 1.25 miles to the north parking lot

Corwina Park

Image
Photo credit trailparkreviews.blogspot.com


Corwina Park is 298 acres in size and provides a unique cross-section of the various plant communities in Bear Creek Canyon. The land for Corwina Park was acquired in 1916 and its stone shelter was built in 1918. Corwina Park is a wonderfully wooded, small picnic park with an intimate scale. The park straddles Bear Creek and Highway 74, with small developed picnic areas on each side—Lower Corwina is the downstream park on the north side of Bear Creek Canyon road, and Upper Corwina is just upstream on the south.

A perfect spot for a family picnic or quick hike, with Bear Creek running through and the historic stone shelter
for a little shade. You can cross Hwy 74 to find an open meadow with a picnic table and rock outcroppings
as well. The park trail is part of the Denver Mountain Parks System and the is actually the Corwina - O'Fallon Trail.
