Description

This new section of the Chamberlain Trail was extended by Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates and Tony Boone in late 2014.

Starting from the trailhead, about one quarter mile up North Cheyenne Canyon from the Starsmore Discovery Center, the trail links Lower Columbine to the popular Chutes Trail. The trail initially climbs through Ponderosa Pine and Scrub Oak onto an open hillside with views into Cheyenne Canyon. It then continues to climb around and above Gold Camp Reservoir through tall stands of pine intersecting near the bottom of the Chutes Trail, where the Medicine Wheel built portion ends. From this intersection, you can continue along the original Chamberlain Trail or climb the Chutes into Cheyenne Canyon.

The trail contains beautiful views and a nice flowy downhill when extending the Chutes Trail descent, or as a scenic connection between the Stratton Open Space and lower Cheyenne Canyon.

This connection opens up a great loop; starting as described above then continuing to climb up the Chutes. At the top keep climbing up Gold Camp Road and just before tunnel one take Spring Creek Trail, another Medicine Wheel project, and then descend Columbine Trail to the junction of Chamberlain and the trailhead.

Up chamberlain and down the chutes is a nice quick loop if you are short on time. If I were king I would make that loop one way to increase safety ...

Super fun. vimeo.com/123471925 Mar 28, 2015
This is a great alternative riding up toward Gold Camp (instead of riding up The Chutes). Great connector trail to get from Stratton Open Space to the trails higher above Gold Camp. Apr 15, 2017
