Spring Brook South Trail

Trail Meter: 

When paired with its sibling trail, Spring Brook North, Spring Brook South makes a great route with good variety of views and terrain.

From Dowdy Draw, you start Spring Brook with 0.3 miles of singletrack over to a 3-way intersection with Spring Brook North to your right, and Spring Brook South to your left.  Which way to go?  You can take the loop either direction, as both directions offer a nice climb with a twisty descent.  Since this is the Spring Brook South description, let's go right!

There's a hint of exposure, but mostly you'll be climbing in the edge of the trees with some good views down into Doudy Draw. Its a steady climb with some twisty turns to keep the gradient in check, and just enough rockiness to keep your focus up.

After you turn away from the draw, the trail levels out. You'll see the Denver water canal on your left, and before you know it you'll be at the end of this trail and the beginings of Spring Brook North.
