Trail Information

Highlights

Banana Peel is a short trail connecting Topaz Mountain with Bonis Creek in the hills west of Lost Park near Jefferson, Colorado. It can be used as an alternate exit or entrance from the Topaz Mountain trail or can be combined with Bonis Creek and a section of Topaz Mountain to make a pleasant little loop. The route is mostly in the trees with occasional open areas where you are treated to beautiful views of the Lost Creek Wilderness Area across the valley.

Fun, albeit short, little addition. Seemed to be in great condition. Nothing too technical, mostly just loose rock

The seasonal gate on lost park is now open, making these trails open and accessible. Reports of little to no snow on the trails.

A fun little connector to make a loop with Bonis Creek, Topaz Mtn/Wallace Gulch.

Seasonal Closure now in effect. It starts 3/1 unlike what is stated at the top of the guide.

Although the seasonal gate is probably not closed yet, the trail is most likely very difficult or impassible due to snow.
