Hero: Guernsey
small-sr Icon
Guernsey is one of the main routes into the network of trails that parallels Kenosha Pass on the west side of highway 285. The trail begins as a right turn off US 285 just past Lininger Lake Road (County Road 58). While technically an out-and-back trail, it does intersect with Foreign and Wahl so only last segment, after the intersection with Wahl, is truly out-and-back. The road surface is mostly rough dirt with small ruts and rocks. Along the first section of the trail, as you climb up to the ridge, there are a couple of bigger ruts and steeper climbs. Good tire placement will be important. The section from the top of the ridge down to Wahl is relatively smooth and easy. After the intersection with Wahl, as the trail climbs to the dead end, it becomes narrower, steeper, and rougher, with a couple of steep, loose climbs that may challenge a stock vehicle and a few tight turns between the trees as you near the top. Camping is only allowed in designated sites until you get near the top of the ridge, but there are several very nice sites designated. After you cross the ridge, dispersed camping is allowed, and there are several more nice sites. As with all the trails in the network, Guernsey is a great trail for viewing fall colors.
