Trail Information

Highlights

This is a scenic drive that can take you all the way from West Creek down to Divide and even Colorado Springs. The drive dips and dives through parts of the Hayman Fire, one of the largest wildfires in Colorado History. The heat was so intense that some areas are just now really starting to show signs of life almost a decade later. It's a popular destination largely due to the access to Hackett, Longwater and Metberry Gulches. Since this trail is open year-round, and so are the gulches, you'll often find folks trying to fight off cabin fever with a quick run to this area. On top of the views, there are a lot of small trails off this road that you can lump together into a day of short runs, or you can combine Hackett, Longwater or Metberry in any combination for a fun day.

Nice scenic drive with great views of Pikes Peak - great to cool off when Springs is hot! Fun access to some of the iconic trails in the area.

Ran Cedar Mountain while updating trails in the area. No major changes in the trail other than it's wider than it should be in many places due to people driving fast through puddles.

I'd recommend airing down a bit due to some of the rockier sections. None were hard, just a bit rough.

The trail may be slightly more difficult than stated due to washout, but not enough for me to list it as harder. I was able to do the trail in mostly two wheel drive; however, at the there are some places on the northern end where the road has washed out, making tire placement pretty important. Great trail and lots of fun.

Myself and 12 other Broncos ran this trail on March 12th. There were areas of snow but it was all traveled through making the areas a non-issue. The rating is perfect as the trail contained a variety of small obstacles and washouts to cautiously drive around. I'm super excited to run this trail in the spring and summer - the scenery is gorgeous and overall, the trail is very accessible and can lead to smaller ones in the area.
