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
