Flowing Park trail starts at the Flowing Park Resevoir and circumnavigates Grand Mesa. It is a 12 mile trail built by volunteers of COPMOBA. Kevin Foote was an integral volunteer in the construction of this trail. While it doesn’t have lot of elevation change the fact that its at >10,000 feet, over looking volcanic fields and the Grand Valey makes this a pretty cool ride. It is on the same road as the areas big ski area – Powderhorn. In the winter people also cross country ski in this area.

Parking at Flowing Park Resevoir. Lots of hunters were here today, killin’
