Description

Park at the trailhead on the north side of Fremont County Road 3A. The trail begins on the south side of the road and continues east to the Royal Gorge Park campground. There are several great views into the Royal Gorge along with some fun trail through juniper, pinion, and cholla forests. The dirt road at east end of trail can be used to approach Fremont Peak and extend your ride. More trails in the park are under construction!
