Trail Overview

There is some good camping along this trail that takes you to upper Palmer Lake Reservoir. Unlicensed vehicles aren't permitted on the main routes, and there are very few side roads to explore. The top part of this trail is relatively easy, but as you drop down it becomes quite a bit more challenging.


Moderate. Upper part is easy, but lower end is steeper with large ruts and undulations. Suitable for aggressive high-clearance SUVs with good articulation and/or lockers. Keep in mind it will be harder driving back up.
