A connector singletrack between Gold Camp Road and Jones Park.

Allen Tanner

Overview

This trail is above 10,000 ft and is usually open mid-summer.

Description

From Upper Gold Camp Road, take road 379 North for 1.7 miles. The trailhead begins at this point through the gate labeled 701.

The next mile is downhill fun with jumps along the way. The trail is nearly all Pikes Peak granite, and good tires are a must. There are several stream crossings that keep the excitement going with rivulets coming down from the eastern edge of Amalgre Mountain.

The second mile is all up, continuing on the Pike's gravel and some dirt running through aspen groves. A few rock gardens give a good challenge along the way.

From this point on, the trail descends through pine and aspens, which are sure to make you grin like an idiot, all the way until it meets with Jones Park #667.

Lots of fun on this trail. A mix of Jack's, 16 and Jones Park. But at 10,000ft, the 100ft elevation changes feel like 500! 6mi

Getting forecast...

Ongoing trail work around 2.5 mile mark. New section is closed with signs. Not sure if the trail is closed in its enterity. The second mile is brutal if you have bike all the way up from Straton open space.... Aug 18, 2016

 
Thanks for the update. Sorry you made the climb and didn't get to enjoy the downhill. It is worth it... but maybe won't approach this trail again until next year when the reroute is complete. Aug 19, 2016
