This is an interesting place to view the valley below and to see bristlecone pines up close. These twisted gnarled trees are ancient and show the marks of time. There's a small nature center and a trail nearby.

Beautiful, easy hike on the way up to Mount Evans. Great place to stop and stretch your legs and do adjust to the changes in altitude and use the restroom. Great place to view the bristle cone pines up close.
