Trail Information

Highlights

Panorama Peak is situated in Roosevelt National Forest just east of Estes Park. It is a loop off of the popular out-and-back, Pole Hill. Panorama Peak offers some truly epic stretches of aspen trees, making it a very popular trail during the fall months when the leaves turn from their vibrant green to the glowing gold that Colorado foliage is famous for. This trail will keep you on your toes as you descend from the top of the trail down into a meadow full of wildflowers that provides some incredible views of your surroundings. For a fantastic day of offroading, combine this trail with Solitude Creek and Pole Hill. Run all three trails for a great time close to the Front Range.

Ran this trail in lifted xterra on 32's. Fun trail with some nice driving skills test. Hiked up to the top Panorama Peak, was very cool to see what the tourist company had built up there. There is a offroad tour company that runs these trails as well. Very friendly.

This is a fun trail with Pole Hill and Solitude Creek. Very pretty and a nice day to boot! The tour truck came through twice for these whoop-de-doo's at the bottom. The kids in back were having a blast.

Many trails in the high country remain closed due to snow pack and potential for resource damage. This trail is on that closed list. We'll keep you updated about conditions and road status as they change.
