Trail Information


A place once called home by mountain men, miners, explorers and trappers; Hahn's Peak is steeped in history. Hahn’s Peak, namesaked after Joseph Hahn, was a gold prospector from the mid-1800s. The roads in this area are remnants of the old mining operations. Although mining claims are still active on the mountain, you will not see much activity during your visit. Instead, the area is enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, campers and off-roaders. With thick, mature aspen tree groves filling the hillsides, you can still find “gold” on Hahn’s Peak each fall and makes for a great leaf-peeping trail. Because Hahn's Peak is the solitary, prominent volcanic peak west of the Zirkel Wilderness, the views available during your visit are splendid.

My wife and I hit this trail a few times a year for camping at the cabin on the end of the road… funny enough the private property is owned by one of my best friends family haha! This road has gotten a bit rougher over the years but I’ve done it plenty of times in a 2015 Nissan Rogue and even a Dodge Ram Van. Just take things slow and leave plenty of room for ATV’s and Dirt bikers.

Took a nice drive to enjoy the colors today. The trail is in good shape, but due to some blow down some areas are tight but have been cleared. Fall is here and the colors were amazing. Not crowded at all since most of the weekend trips have passed. The fires could be seen in the distance.

All clear with only a couple ruts but easily done in anything with any real clearance. Incredibly beautiful area right now with everything blooming.

Took a drive to the trailhead today knowing it was closed for the season. I wanted to get an idea of how much snow this area gets during the winter. I suspect it will not open until July-ish.

A perfect day for a trip to Hahn's Peak. While it was very hot in the front range, the conditions at Hahn's Peak were refreshing. There were only a few hikers along the trail making their way to the top of the peak. One small tree fell across the road that needed to be removed. With only a few minutes invested, we were on our way.
