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.

Easy driving but with some pretty rewarding views. The campsites look pretty good. The FS (or somebody) has put out water tanks and haul containers to put out your campfires, so it must be pretty popular.

Nice trail with plenty of camping spots. Be aware the wind when you visit as only a few spots have good tree coverage.

Broke trail today on locked 37s, had a tougher time getting out than getting in so keep that in mind. Deep drifts in places.

Looks like the owner of the property at tone of the spurs is blocking access. Not sure if they are appropriating part of the trail or the road actually ends there. Plow truck blocking trail and on google images shows something there, looks deliberate. Has the access changes since review? Can anything be done about this. Seems like bad precedent for people to be blocking access to a public trail. All they have to do is let it get overrun a bit and it gets closed to all.

Wide open with no snow. There is very little mud.. Be aware, the part of the trail that leads to the waypoint 10 loop has a lot more washout than it did before. You’ll see a lot more flex here than you have in the past. I’m in a JLU Rubicon with a 3.5” lift and 37s. I experienced fender liner rubbing on this part of the trail. My fender flairs and liners are unmodified (that will change soon).. An unmodified Gladiator sport bottomed out and had to back out. I don’t recommend this part of the trail for unmodified vehicles. However you may have less flexing if you stay to the right side of the trail and watch your tire placement.
