The Broken Boyfriend Trail forms the upper portion of the Whipple Trail System and is itself about 1.5 miles long one-way. You can loop it with the dirt road in about 2.8 miles, or loop it from town for more elevation and mileage. This is a beautiful trail with no major climbs or descents, although if you want to access it from town, you'll have to climb up to it.
Trail length: 2 miles

    This is a great hike that offers beautiful views, but isn't super intense like many of the up/down trails in the area. With the old railroad grade this forms a good 3-mile loop if you drive up to the midland grade, or a bit longer with more elevation gain if hiked from Buena Vista
