About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This 3.2 mile out and back trail offers great views.  Dogs are allowed, but must be leashed.  This trail is not stroller or wheelchair friendly. Once you park, you will hike past the gate onto Upper Gold Camp Road, from there you will hike to the clearing – you will know it when you see it. From the clearing, you will see a metal rope fence – the trail starts on the far right side, and it is unmarked.  PC: Monica Heathcoat

I have lived in Colorado Springs since 2010, and really enjoy hiking! I became active with Hike it Baby in April 2016 and fell in love with carrier hikes. I became a branch ambassador for the Colorado Springs branch in February 2018.  I now help with the national team with localized support and the LEAP program.  I currently host and enjoy toddler led and stroller hikes.
