 ‭(Hidden)‬ Plants & Animals

Along Colorado’s Front Range the sweeping grasslands of the Great Plains rise to meet the rugged peaks of the Southern Rocky Mountains. Where they meet we find the foothills – a zone of geological and biological transition. Foothills ecosystems are made up of myriad landforms such as cliffs, canyons, hills, and plateaus. Plant communities range from grasslands to shrublands to forests which provide a variety of habitats for a rich diversity of animals.

 ‭(Hidden)‬ History

The Name

The Anne U. White Trail is named in memory of Anne Underwood White, a dedicated environmentalist, scientist and open space advocate, who donated 20 acres for the creation of this trail.

The Land

Except during times of logging, Fourmile Canyon Creek has always been roadless. Some of the land to the south of the trail was homesteaded in the mid-1800s by a Welsh miner who cleared the timber and cultivated crops on the gentler slopes. It was also grazed by cattle in the summer. Much of it bears the scars of mineral prospecting and one pit became an operating mine. Most of the native ponderosa pine and Douglas fir forest in Fourmile Creek Canyon was extensively logged in the late 19th century.
