Trail Information

Highlights

This scenic 4WD & OHV trail starts near the Westcreek area off 67 in the Hayman burn area. While there isn't much vegetation at the start of the trail, the views of all 14,110ft of Pike's Peak are amazing. As you proceed down the trail, the trees will start to pick up and you'll even encounter some logging operations by the Forest Service to thin out the trees towards the south. Rule Ridge is great for camping near 67. While there aren't well-known trails on this route, the spurs off the main trail offer a little of something for everyone.

Easy thoroughfare to access other trails in the area. Large deep puddles on the road from the big rains we've been having. Lots of people camped out enjoying the beautiful weather. Beware of careless OHV users who speed around corners.

We went to get some pictures and enjoy the day in the area. Beautiful as always and colors were starting to change.

This trail has gorgeous views of mountains and forest. You can always catch glimpses of Pike's Peak along the way too. A lot of places to pull off for lunch. Not as difficult as some of the other trails in the area, so if scenery is your thing instead of big obstacles, this trail is for you!
