Overview

Mount Baldy (FS 379 and FS 379A) is located within the Pike National Forest approximately 15 miles southwest of Colorado Springs. It is approximately six miles in length, and reaches elevations above 11,000 feet, just within the timberline at the base of Almagre Mountain South. This 4WD road provides a sense of solitude because it is remote and less traveled than other roads in the area. It provides expansive views of the plains, rivaled only by the few iconic peaks in the area. The Pike National Forest contains a myriad of trails which provide a broad spectrum of outdoor recreational opportunities. The area is popular among OHV users, mountain bikers, hikers, and equestrians. The trail network includes mild trails suitable for stock vehicles (it is not uncommon to see ordinary passenger sedans and minivans on some trails) in addition to genuine 4WD tracks such as Mount Baldy (FS 379), Eagle Rock (FS 370C), and Saran Wrap (FS 370D) that traverse higher elevations. Accessibility and panoramic mountain views are the greatest attractions to this area.
