Cold Brook Canyon Trail
The trail begins on the west side of Hwy 385 two miles south of the Visitor Center. This mildly strenuous trail traverses across a former prairie dog town, along the edge of a controlled fire and through Cold Brook Canyon to the park boundary fence. Because of the Mytle Fire in 2012 and the lack of vegetation within that area, flash flooding may occur in Cold Brook Canyon. Always be aware of the weather and move uphill if flooding occurs.
