Worth Noting: The primary features of this park are the rock outcroppings known as “The Three Sisters” and “The Brother”. The outcrops are metamorphic rock of the Precambrian Era, which consist largely of silver plume quartz. A trail leads to the top of “The Brother” where an awesome view of Evergreen and the surrounding valleys await you. Included in the view from the summit, is an amazing view of Mount Evans. Evans, along with Pikes Peak and Longs Peak, is one of the most pronounced landmarks found along the Front Range.
