Trail Overview

A fantastic 360 degree view is the reward at the top of this fun trail. You can see Breckenridge, Grays Peak, Peru Creek, Webster Pass and Radical hill from here. Unlicensed vehicles are not permitted. Closed from November 23 to May 20.


Moderate: This trail is very steep, narrow and quite rocky in spots. We don't rate it difficult, but it comes very close. Not recommended for novice drivers or anyone afraid of high narrow shelf roads.
