Situated in the Arapaho National Forest and close to Denver, Colorado, the Yankee Hill 4X4 network is filled with many four-wheel drive trails, but Yankee Hill itself is the crown jewel. While many refer to the area as Yankee Hill, this is the actual summit that gives you the thrill of a moderate hill climb along with incredible high-altitude views, including James Peak, Mt. Bancroft, and Mount Evans.
The Yankee Hill Summit Climb is a short loop route that can be run in either direction. To take the uphill approach, start at where 175.1 and 175.3H meet. The uphill climb is steep with loose rock and then turns into a dirt and rocky road. Parts of the road may pinstripe wider full-size rigs. A high clearance four-wheel drive vehicle will do just fine. This is an excellent off-road trail for either beginners or those just looking to escape the city. This route is described taking the trail uphill and counterclockwise.
