This 1.5-mile, soft-surface segment connects a portion of the existing Mitchell Creek Trail system in the Founders area to Gateway Mesa Open Space.
This quiet and scenic trail winds through a narrow, riparian canyon, then up to the edge of a rocky mesa. Hikers can travel through four habitat types in just 1.5 miles: canyon, riparian, ponderosa forest and open grassland. Trail usage is for hikers only. Mountain bikes are not recommended on this extension and are prohibited on Gateway Mesa Open Space.
Mitchell Creek Canyon Trail is available for adoption through the POST Partners volunteer program.
