We did the full Pierson Park Road before the flood washed part of it away, and it was time to see what remained. We met in Estes Park, which worked out well, and then we headed over to the trail just down the road.
The initial climb was easier than before, and we were up at the top really quickly. We started with a few people on bicycles, and we kept meeting them here and there along the trail. By the last time we saw them, it was pretty funny to all of us.
We got to the end and hung out for a bit, taking a look at the new informational sign and the destroyed trail. Then we headed back to do the loops that we hadn't done before.
The loops were more difficult than the main trail, but not by much. We climbed up the hill to the west end, and then followed it out to a campsite where we thought the trail would go through (it didn't). It was scenic to get there, though, so we didn't mind.
We finished the loops and headed out the way we came in, and then took the highway over to the other side.
