The Saddle Rock Trail begins at the Gregory Canyon Trailhead and leads 1.3 miles southwestward to the Greenman Trail.

The Saddle Rock Trail leaves the Gregory Canyon Trailhead and begins climbing southwestward. (It may also be accessed via the Amphitheater Trail.) It winds along the western slope of the Flatirons to a formation called Saddle Rock. The path leads through the saddle of the rock and continues climbing. Within 1.3 miles it joins the Greenman Trail. The surface of the Saddle Rock Trail is dirt with large rocks strewn over steep terrain. It may be used in conjunction with other trails in the area to form a loop within the park. There are several points for climber access from this trail.
