Trail Overview

This is an easy loop trail taking travelers through groves of aspen, pine, and cedar trees on their way up to over 11,000 feet of elevation. All along the trail, there are several unimproved camping sites. Several side trails lead to vista overlooks. The trail is well maintained and trailer friendly. Enjoy the amazing views along the entirety of the trail. Along the way, you pass Hancock Spring. This natural spring has wood pole fencing around it to protect it from encroachment. There is a sluice that directs a portion of the water away from the spring.
