Hiking at Meyer Ranch Park – JeffCo Open Space

We went for an awesome hike today at Meyer Ranch Park – Jefferson County Open Space – in Aspen Park near Conifer.  The weather was beautiful – mid 50’s, the sky was blue, and there was just a soft breeze. The scenery was gorgeous – Colorado at its finest.  Unfortunately, we didn’t see any wildlife this time.

We hiked all three loops including the loop at the top.  The hike took about 2 hours.

The trail was icy in some spots and a little muddy in others – where the ice was melting.  It was easy to manage, however.  Nothing was impassable.

We started at about 2:30 in the afternoon and only passed a few other people on the trail.

This is a trail that is well worth hiking.  It does get crowded at times, so it is good to check the parking lot at the bottom to make sure it is not too busy.  Late afternoons or early mornings are best on the weekend.  If you can get up there during the week, you will have the trail to yourself.  Check it out.  Enjoy!
