Description [Suggest Changes]

This is an extremely scenic, can't-miss-it section of the Colorado Trail that leads through iconic Blackhawk Pass and Section Point. There is some hike-a-bike going through the pass with great riding on either side. It can be ridden as a loop going counter-clockwise out of Rico, CO via Scotch Creek - Forest Road 580, Circle Trail, and Silver Creek Road, or by using Hermosa Park Road (Barlow Creek).
