Trail Information

Highlights

Lying up the hill west of the former mining towns (now gambling centers) of Black Hawk and Central City, Pisgah off road trail (Forest Service Road 739.1) provides an important and convenient entrance into the extensive network of 4x4 trails around Yankee Hill. Pisgah is also popular because of its proximity to the Columbine Campground and is often referred to as the Columbine Cutoff.

After some recent rains its pretty washed out. I'd say it pushing more towards a 4.

Deep mud on spots. Sweet trail though.

A fun snowy ledge but it is also used as a connection trail. Passable in almost all stock wranglers with good tires currently. Minus a star because if you encounter people coming towards you there is no turn around so you have to back all the way down.

1/2 cars got stuck. Definitely bring recovery equipment. Tons of fun!

High clearance definitely needed. One car was stock 4Runner TRD and didn’t have enough clearance to make it more than .75 miles. Definitely passable with the right equipment!
