Trail Overview

The West Swift Trail is the route to the top of Clark Peak. This 6-mile road is a rough dirt road with a few rock ledges and potholes. It is wide in many areas and most stock SUVs in 2-wheel drive can do it when the weather is good. The road can become challenging in rain and snow. There are several offshoots to hiking trailheads as well as 2 or 3 off-road trails on the way up. The end of the road takes you to the Columbine camping area and the trailhead to the Old Columbine off-road trail (which is way harder) The trail climbs to 9,620 ft with incredible views of the desert floor and several places to pull off and take pictures. This is a great trail for family or friends that don't want to go hard on a trail but still want to get away for a while.
