Johnny Park Road
Most of this trail will follow a high ridge with amazing views. Start on the east end for the best camping and easy access to the trail. Unlicensed vehicles are permitted, and this is a popular spot for them as well. There are some good challenging spots to the north towards the end of the trail. If you start on the west end, you can also get to Peirson Park Road. Open June 15 to November 30.
East-end start: Take Highway 36 northwest from Lyons or southeast from Estes Park. Turn west on C.R. 47 about 0.2 mile north of mile marker 11. After 3 miles, bear left when pavement ends. Head uphill through gate. West-end start: Follow directions for Pierson Park Road, Trail #21, but continue another 1.6 miles on C.R. 82E to F.S. 118 on right. Several good camp spots along first part of trail.
