What to know
The trailhead starts at the same location as the trail to the Arkansas River overlook in the upper parking lot at the visitor center. Marked in GREEN blazes, this 2-mile loop enters a heavily forested valley after leaving the old rock quarry area. Allow 1-1/2 to 2 hours to go down and back up this valley. The trail is moderately difficult. (For a longer hike and dramatic overlook, see the description of the East Quarry Trail).
