Trail Overview

Get there early, pick an awesome campsite with a view, unload ATVs, UTVs, dirt bikes and your kids and start having fun. This is quick trip from Estes Park. Stay on marked trails. Closed December 1 through June 14.


Moderate. Steep and rocky in a few places, but nothing difficult. Hardest part is at the beginning, so pulling a hauling trailer to a campsite could be a challenge. Not much room to park at start of trail. No toilets. Pack out all your trash.
