This is a joint venture between Douglas County, Town of Castle Rock, and the Pinery Water and Wastewater District to preserve 1,294 acres of mesa, steep-rock cliffs, shady gulches, open grassland, and lush riparian habitat of the Cherry Creek basin.

The eastern section connects to the paved Cherry Creek Regional Trail and the southwestern section eventually will connect to Gateway Mesa Open Space. The property has more than four miles of trail open to hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians.
