Trail Information

Highlights

Predator Trail is one of the lesser-traveled tracks in the area because it doesn’t feature any major obstacles and isn’t all that long. It’s named for the company that sponsors trails in the area and is used more as an access route to ATV and walking paths rather than wheeling. Despite this, the trail is a nice short out and back with some amazing views. Each gulch trail offers different views of the valley, and these are just as spectacular and easier to get to if you aren’t looking for a really rough day on the trail. Add this trail to Forest Service 202 for some views with mild technical areas.

This trail has some great views, but they closed the trail at waypoint 4 and it's much shorter than it was. I might camp here, but not sure I'd wheel here unless combining it with some other out and backs in the area.

As of 4/1 it is safe to say this trail is open, though winter and spring snow may still exist on the trail. Never go out without others and recovery gear, but enjoy spring in Colorado!

This trail is located at a higher alitude of Colorado and at this time of year should be considered impassable for any regular off-road user. Some people may be able to manage these trails with the correct gear, emergency equipment, and rig. Travel with caution.

One correction to this write up: At the end of the authorized full-size route (waypoint 7), the motorcycle only trail NSFT 736 (Noname) begins. This write-up states it is a hiking trail, but that is incorrect. The 2019 MVUM shows it as a motorcycle/dirt bike trail. Motorcycles may take Trail 736 down to the MVUM endpoint at the Teller/Park County line, which is right before the junction with the currently closed portion of FS 220. Currently it is an out-and-back trail. This may change with the final outcome of the Pike San Isabel NF travel management process. As currently drafted, the preferred alternative C would open part of FS 220 in Park County to allow this motorcycle trail to be run as a loop back to FS 897. Efforts are underway to get to the Forest Service to open all of FS 220 to reestablish the rest of the original southern loop with Hackett Gulch, but it will be a tough fight.

Not our favorite trail but fun to run because it's not that busy even on a weekend. It's an easier way to get to the views of the South Platte River thank Hackett or the others and was more appealing for the parents who were with us.
