The Lenhardy Cutoff trail follows the route built initially by George Leonhard in 1872. The trail was built as a toll road and mail route bypassing Buena Vista to take a slightly shorter route to Leadville. The trail heads east from the Spanish Mills area and gradually gains elevation until finally making its way to Chubb Park near Highway 285/24 on Trout Creek Pass. Camping is plentiful along the route allowing access to several additional connected trails. From Lenhardy Cutoff, you can access Spanish Mills, Natural Bridge, Big Sandy, Million Dollar View, Shields Gulch, McGee Gulch, and Chubb Park.
