Hero: Crampton Mountain Overlook
small-sr Icon

This short spur trail off Crampton Mountain trail leads to a spectacular scenic overlook underneath a powerline tower, with great views of Little Crampton Mountain, Meadow Gulch, and the valley along Highway 9 leading into Canon City. It is moderate difficulty, with the main challenge being the steep rutted descent near the beginning of the spur, which could be slick in wet conditions. It is a must-do if you are running the Crampton Mountain trail. The overlook at the end makes a nice campsite if you don't mind camping under a powerline tower.
