Hero: Comanche Grassland - David Canyon A
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. David Canyon A, FS 2200.A, is an overgrown double-track trail through rolling grasslands. The path through the grass is not very obvious in places, so some scouting on foot may be needed if you lose sight of the trail. The trail surface is a mixture of gravel and fine dirt. When wet, this dirt can be extremely slippery. Any stock 4x4 can easily travel this trail. The trail's south end forms a large loop with large juniper trees and cholla cactus all around. This portion has great views of the canyon and bluffs to the south. This is active ranch land, and grazing cattle are common. 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.
