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.

Good day on the trail. Most other folks that were out were hunters and a few SxS. Icy in spots but nothing crazy.

I really love this trail. The heavy rains we had over the summer really rutted a lot of the trail. Just be careful out there as bumps and rocks are a little more exposed. Still had a couple Aspens holding on to their leaves too. Really pretty day for a drive.

I was out on Cedar today and taking new pictures for waypoints. Just more places it's washed-out or has more exposed rocks. The new pictures and a slightly updated gpx will be updated on the site in the next week or so.

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.
