Trail Information

Highlights

Wanna get away? Blue Mountain is a true hidden gem for camping and easy trails close to Colorado Springs. Unusual for Colorado, this area was not heavily mined during the gold and silver rushes. Instead, it was dominated by cattle ranching from the late 1800s through the middle of the 1900s. Burrow Pit hooks through the heart of a trail system that primarily provides access to some excellent, trailer-accessible, dispersed campsites open year-round.

South Park District fire crews will perform prescribed burns in the area for the next few days as part of the Wilson Project. Expect smoke and possible closed roads.

Bring the trailer, there are so many campsites that you can easily get a trailer to. The scenery was fantastic since the underbrush has been clear out. The trail is a hard packed dirt road, very easy to drive (in fact smoother than the county road).

Mellow but doesn't lack on scenery. Stopped to admire the large aspen grove and interesting rock formations. The occasional large water bars will make you aware of your speed if you're going too fast.
