Out-and-back trail just off the Emerald Valley Ranch road that is being well-maintained down to the ranch by the Broadmoor. Trail was very rain-rutted in several places. We also went down the road a very short ways to the start of the pipeline trail to look at an old mine there - I'm guessing Flourite since there were pieces all over - mostly purple, but also some green. Hike distance a little over 5 miles (68.5 runtotal). When we arrived we were in the clouds after some good rain yesterday and more forecast for today and needed to layer-up - things did eventually clear up briefly before starting to build up again for the afternoon.
