Hero: Comanche Grassland - King Arroyo
small-sr Icon
Comanche National Grassland features a sprawling network of double-track trails through rolling hills and arroyos on the plains of southeastern Colorado. On a clear day, you can see from Pikes Peak to the Spanish Peaks and all the way out to Kansas. This area is open year-round and is usually passable even in the winter when the mountain trails are often snowed in. The area is popular for big game hunters and is most busy during hunting season. King Arroyo (FS 2172) is a well-marked and worn double track through grass and low bushes, with some small rolling hills. The trail surface is a mixture of gravel and fine dirt. When wet, this dirt can be extremely slippery. Any stock 4x4 with moderate clearance can easily travel this trail. The trail passes near the ruins of a stone house built in the 1880s. This is active ranch land, and grazing cattle are common. The trail passes through several gates. Be sure to leave any gates how you found them. If they are closed, close them behind you after passing through. If cattle are on the road, drive slowly and wait for the cattle to move out of the way. Dispersed camping is permitted anywhere up to 1 vehicle length from the trail on National Forest Service land. However, there are no existing improved campsites. Leave your campsite the way you found it. The trail passes near private land, be sure you are on public land before setting up camp.
