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. Fish Creek follows a beautiful stream through woods and meadows around the south and east extents of this 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.

Gosh... with all the other trails in the area added to this one we spent 4 hours exploring. Easy driving, slow leisurely pace, enjoying the scenery and noting how many campsites were scattered throughout the area.

Very scenic - aspen groves, mature ponderosa and huge granite rock outcroppings are abundant throughout the trail. Stopped at the lake (Joe Wilson Reservoir) for a few moments to enjoy the scenery. Explored the 878 "spur" and found it fun with the moderate ruts and tight squeezes between trees. Talked to a resident coming out his driveway, he mentioned he seldomly sees anyone coming up or down the road.
