Trail Information


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 along with the Solitude Creek and Pole Hill trails. The pockets of aspen were showing color pretty good and the trail was moderately busy but plenty of pullout spots and most everyone was courteous. This was my first run with my new to me JL Rubicon and it obviously handled everything very well, even in its stock form. Saw anything from built jeeps on 37s to stock F150s and even a somewhat built Subaru crosstrek on the trail. For me this part of the 3 trails wasn't really anything special or exciting.

This was a great addition to Pole Hill. Only saw 4 hikers on the trail.

If you are doing One you may as well do all three. We did Pole hill, Panorama Peak and Solitude Creek all in one pass. Made for a great day in the rain!

Great camp site at way point 4, not too difficult of a trail.
