A historic cabin is about 1 mile from the trailhead and it's a great destination for families (shade, picnic table and vault toilet there) or those wanting a short hike. There are nice views and the trail to the cabin is ADA accessible grade with a firm natural surface.If you are up for a challenge, the Power Line Trail (about 1 mile) is quite steep, but you will be rewarded at Mahoney Park with granite rock formations and views of snow capped peaks (no bikes downhill on Power Line Tr). The Ginny Trail (4.6 miles one way) is designed for cyclists and it is a challenging mountain bike trail. On the way down, check out the ramps, jumps and other "technical trail features". The Ginny Trail goes through the Bobcat Gulch fire area, which makes for dramatic scenery and an open setting. One time I visited when the burnt trees were covered with a dusting of snow and it was very dramatic with the black trees and white snow. No horses allowed on the Ginny Trail. Equestrians will enjoy the D.R. Trail, 3 miles long, no bikes allowed. The trail is wider with more gentle grades which makes it great for horses! Very nice varied scenery from forest to views.The Ginny, DR and Powerline Trail all lead to Mahoney Park, a nice meadow destination. Free activities and events are offered year-round at Bobcat Ridge from stargazing to nature hikes for kids. « less
