Not much of a "mountain" for those from the West, but it still provides miles of challenging hike and/or running trails for everyone. Come here only during the day (and preferably with a partner) as the trails are densely wooded. Definitely bring a cell phone in case you twist an ankle and need help out.

The trails are single track and wind up and down the hill. Different difficulty levels are available. For example there is the 1.5 mile Ridge Trail follows along the west bank of the Arkansas River. The maximum change in elevation here is 300 feet, but some trails can be steep.

Drive across the Arkansas River bridge at 71st street (west), turn right on Elwood (north) -- once you reach the top of the hill (half-mile?) you'll notice the trailhead parking lot on your right. Free.
