Trail Information

Highlights

Peewink Mountain is an easy, relaxing trail in the foothills above Boulder, CO. It has plenty of beautiful scenery, places to camp, and an old mine site. Although the main trail is very easy, the spurs can offer a little challenge to new drivers and stock rigs. Since there is no seasonal gate it also makes a nice snow 'wheeling trail.

This is an easy trail for access to campsites. One of the spurs at the end is more difficult. Since we were alone we turned around when it got difficult. Some nice views of the snow on distant mountains.

Very crowded when I went. Only spot left to camp was wp 10. Pretty easy trail.

This is a easy trail to get to some (nice) campsites. I even saw a full size van 3/4 in. Only the spurs at the end are more difficult. For the harder spur WP9 mentioned in the description, I used lockers to get back over a rock ledge. The rest is a 2 or 1.5. I wasted time airing down.

Drove up to way point 8. No snow remaining. Fun trail with some mild off-camber moments. Full-size truck had no issues regarding wheelbase or trial width. Great views along the trail.

The trail leading up to 9, 10 and 11 was super fun. 10 was the only trail worth trying and has a few spots for some wonderful photos. 9 and 11 were short and very narrow, not worth all of the tree limbs that will scratch up your truck.
