One of Douglas County's newest parks, the Lincoln Mountain Open Space is a nice park with great views. Its multi-use trails range from easy to moderate, making them great for families and hikers who prefer easier trails. Mountain biking and horseback riding are also popular in the park.
To get there: Take Highway 83 north to Douglas County Road 80 and turn left (west). The parking lot is a half-mile down on the right.
