Alderfer/Three Sisters Open Space

Hiked the Three Sisters Open Space in Evergreen today.  It was a beautiful day for a hike!

Apparently, we weren’t the only ones who thought it was a good day for a hike.  This was the most crowded I have seen any Open Space park in our area since last summer.  Both parking lots were full and cars were parked along the roads outside the park.

We saw tons of hikers, bikers and dogs on the trail today.

Even so, it was beautiful.  The sky was blue, the sun was out and it was warm.  I even had to take off my windbreaker because I was sweating so much.  Dry – probably too dry – and no mud or snow.

This is a great place to hike.  It is right behind Evergreen High School.  It is easy to access.  Also, it has trails for all levels because there are flat open areas as well as steeper trails that go through the woods.  And, if you are a climber, there are lots and lots of big rocks to climb.

I highly recommend this one!

    Hey dan
    I’m going to have to disagree. It being a pretty cool trail with lots of options yes- but the amount of mt bikers there make it nearly impossible to enjoy the hike, you are constantly moving to the side to let them pass and because it has some nice loops, the same bikes are lapping you making you move to the side yet again. Glad you guys had a good time though!

    Thank you for the feedback. I have gone there several times and never had a problem with bikers or other hikers until today. Maybe I went at off peak times or in the winter when there is less traffic.

    That said, we did have to move off the trail several times yesterday because of the bikers. If I go back and have a similar experience, I will definitely post about it.
