Flatirons Vista South Trail

Trail Meter: 

Flatirons Vista South is one of those trails that on the surface isn’t much of a bike trail, but has some hidden gems for those who look off the trail. The trail starts out with a moderate climb up into the evergreens. After you get into the trees the trail comes together with the Prairie Vista Trail. Stay left to continue your journey around Flatirons Vista South. Once you go through the gate, the trail really picks up character. The trail winds through the evergreens and flows downhill all the way to Doudy Draw. This is the area where you need to keep your head up - deer can be seen here most of the year, and in the summer, you will see thousands of dandelions! This trail, as with all of the trails in the Marshall Mesa area, can be very busy with different user groups. Please be very courteous to all of them!

Short sections of muddy trails will still exist. Please use good LNT practices and hike through mud, not around it, so as to prevent damage to trailside vegetation.

OSMP muddy trails closure going into effect 1/21

clear in spots... snow is packed and icy... sketchy stuff

The west section is in good shape with packed snow. Avoid the east as it is "muddy" from the cows near the drinking hole. Take Prairie Vista instead.
