The 3 Sisters Park near Evergreen is part of the Jefferson County Open Space system. Its many interlocking trails wind through open fields, Ponderosa Forest, and cool rock formations. The trails themselves are very manicured and can easily be walked in athletic shoes.
On this trip I started out in the west parking lot, walked the short Meadow Trail to the Silver Fox Trail and headed down the Ponderosa Trail. This trail parallels Buffalo Park Road and arrives at 1.1 miles at the eastern parking lot. From there I headed up the Sisters Trail to the saddle of the sisters itself at 1.88 miles.
From the Sisters "saddle", I connected again with the Ponderosa Trail and walked back to the Brother's Lookout. Brother's Rock is a large out cropping with stupendous views of Mt. Evans to the west and the Evergreen High School to the south. It is the perfect spot for a picnic lunch and Christmas card photo op.
