The Perimeter Trail at RMANWR – Part 2

When the prettiest part of a two mile hike, sometimes four miles, depending on how far I go, it a bushel of wheat grass, I don’t tend to write about it.  But since I’ve walked most of the perimeter trail at Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge and posted it on my blog, I figured I’d mention its west side too.

The Platte River Trail: Overland Pond to Grant-Frontier

Aside from the cold weather, I took a lovely walk along the Platte River Trail today.  As part of my Platte River Trail series, today I wanted to walk from Vanderbilt Park south to Grant-Frontier Park.  From the last time I was at Vanderbilt Park, however, I knew a portion of the trail was closed, but I did not know for how far.  As a result, I parked farther south at Overland Pond Park and hoped to walk as far north as possible toward Vanderbilt Park and then turn south toward Grant-Frontier Park, essentially starting in the middle of the two.
