Bayou Gulch at Two Bridges is a wandering meadow trail that takes visitors along a wheat field. The views of Pikes Peaks and wide-open spaces help to create a peaceful experience.  This trail system boasts colorful Colorado sunrises and sunsets that can be breathtaking and connects with the Cherry Creek Trail.  The peripheral trail may be closed occasionally to accommodate equestrian events associated with the Colorado Horse Park.
